There is a lot of bad information out there about the music industry. In addition to that, it's a very competitive industry filled with a lot of ego, so it doesn't naturally cater to collaboration and the sharing of knowledge.
We believe, however, that in today's environment it is very important to work and learn from each other. The new music industry has so many different paths to success. Just because one person "makes it" doesn't mean another person won't. The pie has gotten bigger and we now have the tools to do so much independently.
The Music Entrepreneur Club is an online club for aspiring artists, producers, managers, and label owners. Through live weekly video chats, webinars, beat/song critique sessions, and a private group, members learn from and interact with established music industry professionals so that you can increase your chances of being successful.
WHY A "CLUB"?
The music industry changes so fast that often times books can’t keep up with the latest information. Furthermore, there aren’t very many resources that understand the independent artist experience and are willing to give you the real information that pertains to your current situation.
WHO IS INVOLVED?
The club was founded and ran by co-founder of Funk Volume Damien Ritter, and producers Chris “Kato” Ju & DJ Pain 1, in partnership with DJBooth and BeatStars. Together they work to recruit a diverse cross-section of artists, producers, and professionals so you can get a variety of perspectives on how to achieve success in this industry.
Every week we address a different topic. If you have an idea for a topic or would like to know more about particular area of the music industry, then just ask. We cater to what you need and want to know about. The monthly MEC membership includes:
- Weekly live discussions on a particular topic (view this week's topic)

We will foster an environment that encourages collaboration and knowledge sharing. You'll find that it's much easier to embark on this journey together.
