This week on The Entertainment Engine podcast we welcome CEO of Artist Collective Evan Price, to the show. We learn about his career in the music industry and the current projects he is involved with.

Leading Music Education Resource ‘Artist Collective’ Tackles Music Industry Myths with Four-Pillared SuperFan Training Program

Artist Collective is the brainchild of CEO and artist manager extraordinaire Evan Price. After 15 years in the industry, he has had firsthand experience in every corner of the industry.

Reinforcing that knowledge with a Bachelors's Degree in Music Business from Columbia College Chicago, he offers his expertise through online training and handcrafted consultations.

His mindful approach encourages artists to invest in personal branding, creating real fan connections, while focusing on collaboration rather than competition.

Living that sentiment, he invites his impressive network to share their expertise through Industry Chats, giving independent artists access they could have only dreamed of!

There’s no question that the music industry has seen vast changes since the top of 2020. Concerts shutdown.

Festivals were rescheduled…and then rescheduled again. And amidst social unrest, artists started releasing more music than ever before. With the climate changing at a rapid pace, artists were left unsure of what strategies they should focus on.

Fully aware of the fact that musicians might be seeking some direction, the top educational music resource center Artist Collective has introduced a four-pillared ‘Simple Music Money’ training system.

In doing this, they have identified the four most important elements that artists should hyper-focus on in order to build a full-time career around their passions.

These elements include working on brand identity, ways to reach out to your target audience, content strategy, and how to navigate income streams.

In an industry already accustomed to keeping up with social and technological developments, companies like Artist Collective have tapped into the value they can offer artists during an intense time of transition and self-reflection in quarantine.

In order to help turn superfans into profits, Artist Collective has decided to replace courses with one-on-one coaching.

Through this, they have helped artists to identify and cultivate superfans, run fully executed marketing campaigns, create and manage fan subscriptions, develop easy content strategies, and most importantly, become full-time creatives!

Previously featured as a top remote education resource by Billboard, the Chicago-based company services fans across the globe.

Focused primarily on helping artists to turn their part-time hobby into a full-time business, their efforts are backed up by several hard-hitting testimonials here.

Their new four-pillared system plans to take things up a notch; equipping artists with the tools that they need in order to bust industry myths about what’s actually required for them to create their own sustainable business.

It is meant to help artists to simplify how to build their business in order to prevent them from investing in the wrong things (i.e. playlist, ads, social media growth, etc) too early in their careers.

Founded by Lead Educator and Branding Specialist Evan Price as well as Monetization Expert/Singer-Songwriter Vinnie Hines, Artist Collective has dedicated itself to assisting independent artists with the strategies, tools, and the means to create a sustainable business out of their passions for several years.

It was great to chat with Evan, he certainly has a great outlook and knowledge to share with music artists and bands, to build a stronger independent sector based in his hometown of Chicago USA.
