Music Biz 101 & More is the only radio show in America that focuses on the business side of the music & entertainment worlds. Hosted by William Paterson University’s Dr. Stephen Marcone & Professor David Philp, the show airs live each Wednesday at 8pm on WPSC-FM, Brave New Radio.
This episode, recorded on location in Nashville, features special guests Josh Taerk & Jerry Lembo. Josh is a singer-songwriter based in Toronto, Canada, and Jerry is the promotions manager that helps Josh with his day-to-day business affairs. Guest host Matthew Kerr joins the discussion as we talk with Josh & Jerry about life as an indie-artist, and what goes on behind the scenes for a recording artist such as Josh. We also get to listen to Josh’s single “Learning To Let Go,” which you should buy and stream as soon as you finish listening to our interview.
Josh’s music can be found at www.joshtaerk.com (The song “Learning To Let Go” was used with his permission, for which we are grateful.)
Enjoy the talk, and see what you can get out of this.
