It’s mid-week, and the e-mails I sent upon arriving in Hollywood are bearing fruit.
Between my time on the Tim McGraw tour and Silicon Valley, I’ve made a few friends in the industry over the past few years. And fortunately, I kept their cards. Even more fortunately, most of them remember who I am.
A few replies and introductions later, I have meetings set up with a couple producers, session musicians, and A&R guys, plus an invite to a D-list celebrity poker game. Boo-yah.
I’m under no illusion that a meeting alone will get me a record deal, but getting meetings feels like the right place to start. Establishing a network is one of the first things you do when starting a company – networks yield introductions; introductions yield opportunities; and opportunities (sometimes) yield success. No reason to think things work any differently in the music world.
So e-mails are sent, assistants are called, and meetings are outlooked.
Next week, it’s on.
