Getting a “foot in the door” can be nearly impossible for aspiring Artists with a limited network. Conversely, it can be time consuming and frustrating for established industry professionals weeding through hours of music and EPK’s searching for motivated and ambitious talent. At Fame Wizard® we’ve built a network of world-class music professionals that can help shepherd those Artists with great potential, and a disciplined and professional work ethic, to the next level of their music business.
Artists are often looking for connections and introductions that can propel their career, but are unsure of where to start or how to gain entrance to what can seem like an exclusive and difficult to access club. After working with a Fame Wizard® Coach and proving their drive and discipline, Artists are referred to professionals in key areas of the music business that can positively impact their career. Though these introductions and referrals don’t guarantee a specific outcome, we at Fame Wizard® take pride in finding synergistic partnerships and mutually beneficial collaborative opportunities between Artists and Pros.
For music industry professionals, Fame Wizard® offers a roster of talent that is thoroughly vetted and painstakingly prepared for the realities of the music business. Members of the Fame Wizard® Pro Network know with certainty that the Artists they hear about from Fame Wizard® are serious about making music their career and have put in the hours to prepare their business for the next level of exposure and growth.
