Having done everything from day one as DIY, it’s kind of a lifestyle for me: self-taught singer/songwriter (20 years), as well as a graphic designer (10 years), and now talent buyer (5 years). I have always believed that the independent musician would eventually shine and come out on top. This is definitely your time. I have toured for years and met with moderate success but I always knew deep down that I would be “on the other side” of the business, and this is where I belong. I pride myself on working with the musicians as much as possible and trying to promote in different “outside the box” techniques. I am honoured to be a judge for The Independent Music Awards.
