About Andrew Apanov


I'm Andrew, the "Music Growth Engineer". I help artists and music startups grow through Dotted Music—a music industry blog and a full-service marketing agency—and my Music Growth Talks podcast.

I’ve been in the music business for over 16 years, as an Editor-in-Chief of Ultimate Guitar, the world's biggest platform for guitar players; pirate radio host; live events promoter and a drum & bass DJ; blogger; speaker. More on me at

This Patreon page is a knowledge hub and a community where I share my ongoing industry discoveries with you.


Well done on clicking that "Show more" button! I see two reasons you may decide to become my monthly subscriber:

1. You value the podcast and want to support the work the podcast's team put into it.
2. You want to learn more from me by accessing the exclusive knowledge base available to my patrons.

Excellent choice, either way. Here's more on the second point:

Between 2014 and 2018 my team and I ran a marketing training platform for musicians called WeSpin. It was successful, but eventually we shut the project down to focus on other ways to help artists. The best WeSpin lessons are stored here, for my patrons.

From new Music Growth Talks episodes to 80+ patrons-exclusive podcast episodes, promo hacks, and marketing strategies—it's all here, too. All entries are grouped by topics, check it out.

Dive in, and I'll be around anytime you have a question.
