The business of music is a global, multi-billion dollar industry comprised of individuals that you may never see, doing all the jobs that are essential to bringing the music you love to become commercially successful.
Today, independent artists are making their own careers – this requires them to be their own manager, promoter, social media expert – all while writing their next hit and marketing it themselves. Major labels now expect far more from the artist than ever before – big numbers in streams, views and followers.
