We’re a team of musicians and Artist advocates who are broadcasting inspiring stories & beneficial information for all professionals working to enhance their careers in the music industry. Our hosts have experienced firsthand the challenges that come with working in our industry. We help our listeners understand the risks and acquire the tools needed to achieve stable, profitable music careers. The music industry is being renewed; this provides big opportunities for independent Artists. But, they need a lot of help understanding where to begin navigating the new terrain. While it used to be every musician’s dream to get signed to the industry's top labels, it is now riskier than ever because many of these giants are going out of business and treating Artists worse than ever before. The new music industry is controlled by music fans and Artists who understand how to connect with them. We interview industry professionals & share their valuable tips and resources every Friday in a new Musicians Unleashed show. Rate & review our show so we know how we're doing!
