#87 & 88| Music-Preneur Spotlight: Frankie Raye

The stages of income.

In this new kind of Spotlight, we’ve combined our pre-pandemic talk with singer-songwriter Franke Raye on how she’s built a full-time career playing live on stage with a recent chat with Executive VP Jack Forman of Bi-Coastal Productions discussing how to pivot that income through live streaming. {plus scroll down for a BONUS episode!}

Send them the dates that you have, because I used to wait for them to send me open dates, but they don’t have time to type all that out. I send them what I have open, they open their calendar, she’s got these? Let me just book you for those. Easy. Done. Now I can go on to the other million things I have to do for my restaurant.
– Frankie Raye
