If there’s one career path that almost automatically comes with some incredible built-in stories, it’s got to be the role of the artist manager. Whether it’s negotiating contracts, handling business on the road, or helping to smooth out the sometimes bumpy roads of the music industry, it’s a job that has its own unique set of challenges and never gets dull.
Today, we welcome students to attend an online interview with artist manager T.J. Sagen in the Wimba EBBS ATM Virtual Classroom at 11:00 a.m. T.J.
