    NEW Today:

    Travelling the Road to Success with Chief, Tour Manager for Nickelback

    The Music Biz Weekly Podcast
    Episode #70



    Join myself (Brian Thompson) & Michael Brandvold for an insanely great 70 min. discussion with Chief (Kevin Zaruk), Tour Manager for Nickelback and founder of Chief Music Management.

    Under the umbrella of Chief Music Management, Kevin somehow finds the time to also manage the careers of some other successful artists including Hinder, My Darkest Days, The Veer Union, Daniel Wesley, Dallas Smith, Florida Georgia Line and engineer/producer Joey Moi.

    Want to know how to make it the music business from someone who truly knows? Then grab a pad of paper or your iPad, hit play and let Rock School begin.
