Milestones

Milestones

My road in life has taken me all over.
I was in a band that needed to tour, and someone had to take that reign.
Started booking shows locally, as a promoter.
Started working at the college radio station, while still booking shows.
Decided to quit my day job and go take the plunge to full-time booking as my sole source of income.
After many many years of working alone, got an offer to join an actual agency.

Day to Day

Check and respond to all new email, and meanwhile updating tour spreadsheets and grids. After that, I take the current tour projects I am working on, and go back to follow up / re-solicit / or solicit anew for open dates in a particular region. Process emails / responses / phone calls. Once a tour is complete, or ready for launch, I coordinate with the management and label teams to announce the tour in conjunction with art work, press and promoter synergy for the best possible on-sale.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

You need to tour. Get out there and see what life on the road is really like. Start small and do it right. Get used to being on the phone. Get used to cold-calling people and building self-confidence. Use proper GRAMMAR and PUNCTUATION. Karma: Be polite and considerate, you never know who you will run into later.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Take a risk. If I could go back and do it again, I would have taken an opportunity to work under someone else's guidance, even if that meant moving or uprooting my situation. Although I got to the same place, I would have circumvented a lot of middle ground in my career.

The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"You should get a "real" job."

The only thing that matters is that you actually love doing what you do. If you have the passion, the rest will work itself out.
