#229 - Ari Herstand Interview

Ari Herstand has a conversation with Tom about the music that's influenced him, as well as his upcoming and hugely personal album, "Like Home", which deals with both his break-up and subsequently meeting his fiancé. Ari also discusses his book, How To Make It in the New Music Business, and his "New Music Business" podcast, unpacking some key tips for budding professional musicians, such as why you only need 183 fans on Twitch to make $50k per year and why you don't want to go viral on Tik Tok. Ari's new single, "Birthday", is out now.
