Becoming a Manager in the Music Industry ft. Ryan Bingham (Fly South Music Group)
/

This week we have Bing, Manager at Fly South Music Group. I wanted to know more about what the journey to being a manager was like. I usually just end up working with managers. I don’t always know how they acquired their career. Luckily Bing was nice enough to sit down with me and teach me how he did it. I hope that others can find this information useful in their journey.

In this episode of the Don’t Shit On The Bus podcast we will learn:

• How Bing went from working on Warped Tour to managing large bands
• About the skills you need to have as a good manager
• The value of having a flexible job when you’re off the road
• What an A&R do for an artist
