When you build an international career as an artist, especially a jazz artist, it pays in many ways to be smart in a sea of amazing talent. How can you maximize your visibility, reach the right people, and get some real results out of your efforts? What is worth investing in, and where should you be saving money? In this panel you’ll hear practical do’s and dont’s about export - maybe even a secret code on how to break through.
