How did you first become involved in the music business? Probably from being a barfly at The Grosvenor hassling staff out for shows for my first bands.
What's your area of expertise and what experience do you have? Nutting out release plans/promo campaigns that factor in general label services. Firestarter have been growing for almost 15 years.
