"Organize" should be my middle name. If you subscribe to my Artist Management Checklists, you know I landed a job because I created an organized workflow that the owner of the company found herself relying on. Before that, my previous boss always admired my color coded to-do lists and agendas. And wayyy before that in second grade, my teacher used to ask me to remind her to do things.
Today's blog post is an excerpt from my workbook, Market Your Music Online. Do you have followers who aren't really your ideal fans/customers? Or maybe when you go to post on social media you blank on what to say? When you post online, do you feel like no one is listening?
I can't even remember how Mandy and I originally connected, but I'm so glad we did. I've been in her Girl Guitar class for the past few weeks and have learned more about guitar during these classes than since 2004 when I got my guitar! Plus, getting to learn guitar while also getting to hang out with some badass chicks and drink wine at the same time? Genius! Read on to get to know Mandy and the crazy busy and amazing life she lives.
I absolutely loved working on this website project with Hanneke to reflect her upcoming album release. Make sure to click through to her website not just to see the site but to listen to her music (I've definitely added her to my regular rotation)!
Sarah is an Americana singer/songwriter, and a Country-Pop songwriter and also happens to be one of my first Facebook group connections turned friend IRL! Her passion for songwriting shines through in everything that she does, so today I want to put the spotlight on her for the first ever Designing the Row Bestie Feature.
When I started my artist management internship in 2011 - I knew next to nothing about the music business! But as a list maker and organizer, I quickly made multiple checklists so that I could keep up and make sure I was on track. A year later, I was hired full time at that management company because those checklists had proven to be a necessity to function! Woah. Cool.
After defining my why, I am 100x more clear on what I do and what my mission is, but I'm able to put into words WHY I do what I do. And that... that feels amazing and gives me a sense of purpose I didn't have before.
I know starting up a new band or your own business is no joke.
And when you’re doing that you don’t usually have money to hire a web designer. So today I’m going to give you a Website 101 crash course. I’ve been coding and designing websites since 2010, so you could say I’ve got some advice when it comes to websites.
Mountain Song Festival was created to bring the best in acoustic music including bluegrass, newgrass, old time, folk, jazz and traditional mountain music, as well as the many branches that stem from it, to our community and to further encourage music in our everyday lives.
Once compared to a man who wears many suits, in thirty-two short years Justin Townes Earle has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally. Between releasing four full-length-critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, a new found sobriety, being born Steve Earle’s son, amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels, and facing the trials and tribulations of everyday life, it’s safe to say JTE has quite the story to tell.
If you've been following along with my blog for awhile, you’ve probably heard me mention my workbook a few times… and that’s why we’re here today! During the writing process I really wanted to talk more about YouTube, but didn’t want to turn it into a chapter book on setting up a YouTube channel. So, the content in this webinar is really an extension of the “Is Your YouTube Channel Good Enough” chapter from my workbook, Market Your Music Online.

“Kenny looks so calm, cool and collected as his fingers smoothly dance across the fingerboard that one wonders how he is able to coax all of the rich tone, volume, and note clarity out of his instrument while playing at lightening fast tempos with such economy of motion and complete relaxation.” - Flatpicker Guitar Magazine
