In this interview we also cover:

  • Experiences and lessons learned, including adapting to an industry shift from physical to streaming services, and networking and making opportunities in the competitive music industry.
  • Learning to balance what feeds your soul and the business savvy required to nurture the relationships that drive success.
  • Building his “team” including influential Bay Area attorney Michael Aczon.
  • Development as a singer, producer, and entrepreneur with his label, Rebel Soul Records, and the empowering messages he aims to deliver through his music.
