E3: Get Your Art Together w/ Bon Iver's Justin Vernon
Host Emily White had the privilege of interviewing Bon Iver's Justin Vernon for her students at New York University's Clive Davis Institute prior to the pandemic. White realized this conversation perfectly brought to life Chapter 1 of How to Build a Sustainable Music Career and Collect All Revenue Streams - Get Your Art Together. Bon Iver's management kindly gave their blessing to share this interview in podcast form.
White feels that anyone can achieve this book's and podcast's title. However the art must be great to do so. As artists and industry folks, it's natural to get caught up with what happens after music is made (marketing, distribution, etc.). However one will not be successful if the art isn't great. So much so that White is constantly reminding those in her profession of Chapter 1's title - Get Your Art Together. And why one shouldn't move on until they know they are "ripe" and ready to record, ensuring their songs, players, and vision are truly in the best place possible while creating from one's heart and soul.
We hope you enjoy this very special interview with Justin Vernon by Emily and her students. Happy listening!
