About the Podcast

Progressions: Success in the Music Industry
Interviews highlighting successful careers in music and breaking down the steps it took to achieve their goals.
I do not believe the people who have thriving careers and fulfilling lives in music can look back and attribute it all to “luck”. At some point in their career they committed themselves to a goal and took steps to achieve that goal. That's what Progressions is here to highlight. We will set you up for success by bringing you an array of interviews with guests from all parts of the industry. By focusing on identifying significant steps and turning points in their careers we hope to inspire you to set big goals for yourself and by doing so design the music career that you've always dreamed of.
