Artists Make Money Hanging Out With Fans Online: Topeka's Andy Levine
After selling his festival cruises company to Norwegian Cruise Lines, entrepreneur Andy Levine returns with his new startup Topeka, which gives artists an opportunity to get paid for online fan conversations, digital house concerts, and Zoom serenades. Music tectonics host Dmitri Vietze finds out from Andy why he started the new endeavor, and how it is well-suited for the current Shelter-at-Home moment. Andy's career focus has been on helping artists and fans connect with more authenticity while still generating revenue for those artists. He also talks about Topeka's social impact component helping single moms in Atlanta. This continues our series of interviews of new opportunities arising during the worldwide self-isolation period. The Music Tectonics podcast goes beneath the surface of the music industry to explore how technology is changing the way business gets done.
