Making It In The Music Industry (w/ Ben Kweller)
Manage episode 357567775 series 1339908
In today’s episode, I talk to Grammy-nominated musician, Ben Kweller.
Ben started in the music industry when he was 12 years old! He was part of the popular band Radish—which was signed to major record label, Mercury Records.
But when Ben was 19, Radish disbanded. So Ben moved to New York and went solo.
30 years later, he’s still releasing new music, runs a production studio, and mentors musicians to help them navigate the behind-the-scenes side of the music industry.
Check out Ben Kweller’s music wherever you listen, and get more from him on his website BenKweller.com.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn about what it’s like to be a young rockstar, you’ll love this episode.
In this conversation, you’ll enjoy 3 BIG things:
1. Why Ben never had a backup plan out of the music industry
2. How “jam-nesia” is the KEY to having a long-term music career
3. And what ACTUALLY makes you money as a musician (spoiler alert: it’s not your songs)
Enjoy those 3 things… plus a bunch more ear nuggets along the way.
