Surviving the Music Industry
About This Show
Surviving the Music Industry (SMI) is a music industry-related podcast produced by DiMe Collective. The goal of SMI is to be informative and entertaining while educating listeners about the different fields in the music industry with our guests’ stories, tips, insights, and experiences. In the weekly interview-style format, we talk about gear, tour life, writing, production, etc. Basically, how do industry professionals survive the music industry? Then, we solicit advice from our interviewees that they would give to players, writers, producers, hustlers, etc. The hosts are two SUPER FUNNY music industry vets (touring musicians) that know how to have a good time! The show draws on characteristics from NPR podcasts, the “Tim Ferriss Show” podcast, “Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show” antics, and the hilarity of music industry personalities and experiences.
