It’s no secret that independent musicians are struggling out there. There are some out there you have heard of, and some you haven’t heard of, working incredibly hard to get their artistic expressions out in front of audiences. A lot of times, that grind can start to look pretty bleak and exhausting if you are moving through it without any plan or strategy.

One hot summer day earlier this year, I was on the phone with John Scargall, touring country artist and #GoodFriendoftheShow. John and I talk to catch up on each other’s projects every so often, and to bounce ideas off of one another.
As this particular conversation went on, John told me about his upcoming Music Industry Master Mind podcast. The series features John interviewing “some of the music industry’s top executives and minds to find out what makes them tick; [and] the beliefs and strategies they use in order to achieve tremendous success.”
Now, I am ecstatic and humbled to tell you that Music Industry Master Mind also features the story of Lehigh Valley Underground!
John extended the offer to me to share my experience of building Lehigh Valley Underground, from fledgling blog to local online music powerhouse(?). To have my name — and, especially, Lehigh Valley Underground’s — listed alongside some of the top executives in the music industry today is a tremendous honor, and to share my thoughts on John’s amazing platform is something for which I’m incredibly grateful.
Thanks to John for including me! Please have a listen to the podcast to learn our origin story (Spoilers: The Quinn Spinn is involved), what it takes to succeed, and my hopes for LVU’s future.
