About the Author
Bryan Calhoun started his music business career as a student at the University of Georgia, bringing national acts like Tribe Called Quest to the UGA concert stage way back in the early 90s.
Since then, he's worked with the best of the best in the music industry. Bryan helped create the inescapable online identity of superstars such as Kanye West, Lil Wayne, G-Eazy, Questlove, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and so many more. Bryan was the A&R Manager for Relativity Records, where he developed Three 6 Mafia, Project Pat, and others. In 2008, he became Vice President, New Media and External Affairs for SoundExchange, overseeing music industry relations that attracted tens of thousands of artists to the nonprofit that collects and distributes digital performance royalties.
Bryan served as a Board Member and Advisor of the Future of Music Coalition, is a GRAMMY® voting member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, and is a regular speaker at SXSW, San Francisco Music Tech, MIDEM, Black Entertainment and Sports Lawyers Association, New Music Seminar, ASCAP Expo, and more.
"I advocate for musicians. I want great artists to succeed and give fans great experiences with the artists they love," he says. "The quests to empower artists and do things nobody has done continue to drive me. It's fulfilling for me to see artists succeed and fans get closer to their favorite music in ways they never imagined."
