Join The Fam as they continue to discuss how artists/their teams can pivot and optimize their goals for long-term success in the music industry.
For their 2nd Edition, they are joined by Jay Campbell (Artist Manager, Tones And I) and Sarah Patellos (Spotify).
While this event is completely FREE, The Fam will be taking this opportunity to raise money for the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. Any amount you can donate helps provide financial assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry workers who are struggling to make ends meet.
They will be accepting donations through GiveButter with a goal of raising $1000 this summer!
The FAM is an open and positive community for aspiring music professionals to connect, collaborate, and create.
As an art form built around conversation and expression, music suffers when that conversation is competitive as opposed to collaborative. Collaboration pushes people to do their best, learn from and teach their peers, and develop their individuality.
