I was interested in learning more about the music industry. I found this podcast and by the 2nd episode, I was ready to make a career change! After five episodes, I had made a video, started my Electronic Press Kit and created a detailed plan for making it all happen. Thank you Greg for this fascinating look into making it as an independent music professional!
