Music is a real job. At June’s Happy Hour, James Keblas will walk the audience through a soon to be published infographic illustrating how three Seattle musicians from diverse genres are making a living on music alone. This revealing presentation categorizes a musician’s revenue potential into six areas and shows how the percentages change depending on your style music ranging from hip-hop to rock to classical. If you’re a musician on the make, this presentation will help you better understand how to leave that part-time barista job and make the leap to full-time musicianship.
James Keblas is the Director of Seattle’s Office of Film + Music.
