    New This Morning

    Professionalism in the Music Industry (Don't Be A Dick)


    The Rock Star Branding Podcast
    Ep. #29

    Join myself (Brian Thompson), Michael Brandvold and Steve Jones for a discussion on implications that can result with an artist's career if they aren't professional and respectful with the middlemen in the music industry.

    From radio to TV to magazine editorial staff, to bloggers and podcasters, to managers and agents and promoters and record labels, from marketing teams to merchandise reps to tour crews... an artist's professional support team can be massive.

    Click play and listen to some of our very own war stories of the fall outs that can occur if an artist doesn't handle their career in a professional manner.
