Chris is the host of Behind The Note
Podcast: Advice For A Successful Music Career where he interviews musicians about what has worked for them in their career on their way to success.
Chris's secret weapons:
- Performing is the foundation for everything he does and podcasting is a way to teach.
- Musicians are really creative but don’t necessarily know how to get their message and talent out there.
- YouTube is very interesting because it’s a continuous conversation. People come there because they’re looking for you.
