Music Podcasts >

Imagine trying to build a career in your dream field without connections. Imagine working hard and sharing your work, but it’s not getting in front of the right people. When Life Hands You Lennons will help you change that. It’s the podcast that spotlights the talent within the music business while getting it in front of the right people, especially you. Thus far into my career I’ve been able to build up a myriad of contacts and knowledge within the music business, including artists, musicians, publicists, label owners, business owners, distributors/aggregators, managers, and more. When Life Hands You Lennons is about sharing that knowledge, the connections, and their expertise with you. When I was going to college, networking was hammered (figuratively speaking, of course) into my brain. The importance of networking is vital in most industries, but it’s most certainly crucial in the music business. The opportunities that I’ve been presented with have been because of the people I’ve been able to connect with in my career. While I continue to make those connections, take advantage of the opportunities I’m presented with, and go full-speed ahead, I want to share that knowledge with you. Therefore, you can avoid the mistakes that I’ve made thus far into my career. If you’re looking to further your career and knowledge within the music business, then you’ve tuned in to the right show.
