“You’re not looking for millions and millions of just generic listeners. You’re looking for the superfans. You’re looking for a smaller community of dedicated people who really are invested in this form of music. With that and with that alone, someone can sustain their livelihood.” - @metalmotivation [0:28:50]

“My second-most recent album, the one that was released in the fall of 2019, it debuted at number two on the Billboard New Age sales chart. I’m completely convinced it was because of what I’ve learned through Savvy Musician Academy and the courses.” - @jeffpearcemusic [0:32:24]
