15 years of "music business"
Here as a student once upon a time. Not a musician, but in a band.
Grass roots: the most important part is to be passionate about it, being pragmatic. Am I going on the right path? Do you have what it takes? Reaching out to people. Build relationships. Ask for more. Be willing to hear criticism. Participating in the community. GET OUT THERE. What can you offer? BE THE PERSON THAT MAKES THINGS HAPPEN. DOCUMENT EVERYTHING.
Music scene: MAKE YOURSELF PRESENT. Meet everyone. Go to Be Here Now.
Working with other people: find the people who are the producers!
