Everyone has a story. Especially when it comes to working in the music world. We’ll speak to people across every role of an artist's team, from the assistants to the CEOs, and across labels, agencies, venues and studios. Learn how these industry professionals got their start, along with the ins and outs of their job, and what advice they have for anyone chasing the dream of working in music.
Right place, right time. That’s how Grace James explains her start in the music industry. She randomly caught a music business panel at NYU, “got up the nerve” to “ask for an internship,” stayed up all night putting together a resume for J Records, and “that's really, really where it started.”
James, now vice president of marketing for Atlantic Records, walks listeners through this journey, including how she balances selling both a product and someone’s “craft”; how she handles the complex timelines, calendars and schedules of multiple projects; and how she also became a fitness blogger.
This is the story of Grace James.
