Jason Moon Wilkins is next on Music Business Radio. He's worked in various capacities within the music industry, including having his own record deal with the band toybean in the mid-90s, playing bass for artists such as Josh Rouse and Garrison Starr, and acting as a consultant, manager, DJ, journalist, and festival coordinator.
His latest project, Next Big Nashville, is a festival of over 140 upcoming bands of all genres.
Jason talked about building a local scene, managing major label acts, getting record deals, and losing record deals.
Demos Reviewed: NONE!!
Jason hijacked the Demo Derby to play some upcoming artists from Next Big Nashville. Last year's event had 33 acts and 14 of them have been signed, so if the trend continues, you'll be hearing a lot more of what we heard.
For those not on the podcast.
