You know him in Quinn Spinn lore as Scotty Rock. Our first co-host. The Pippen to my Jordan. The Donkey to my Shrek.
Today, however, Adam Arnold steps out of the shadows.
We invite Adam to break the fourth wall today to tell us about his new podcast, Can’t Live With ‘Em, Can’t Live With Adam. The show is an opportunity for Adam to open up about his challenges navigating Tourette Syndrome, ADD, learning disabilities, countless legal issues, and many family conflicts — and how he has emerged strong and successful.
Last week, we announced that we’ll be hosting a free virtual panel in commemoration of Black History Month, titled Succeeding as a Black Entrepreneur in the Music Industry, on Wednesday, February 15 at 6 p.m. CT. This special event will give multi-disciplinary music industry veterans a chance to share their experiences navigating the industry as a Black creative, the challenges they’ve encountered and overcome, and the lessons they have learned along the way.
Today, we’re back with the official panelist announcement!
Meet the Panelists
This year, we’ll be educating the masses with a series of roundtable panel discussions featuring music industry veterans, who will share their experiences and perspectives for the benefit of those navigating their own creative journeys.
The first of these discussions will take place online next month — and it’s free to tune in!
Carol Kaye‘s historic career is unparalleled. A member of the famous Los Angeles “Wrecking Crew” of session musicians from the 1950s through the 1970s, Kaye’s memorable and melodic bass lines can be heard on an estimated 10,000 recordings, including many of the biggest hits of the 20th Century. She is the most recorded bassist of all-time.
On Wednesday, February 1, Carol Kaye will join our friends at Paradox Jukebox for their 2023 season premiere. This inspiring conversation highlights Carol’s life and career, which has changed the course of popular music history.

The time is drawing near for our friends at Music on the Move Studios to host their biggest all-female showcase yet at The Basement East.
It’s that time again! Time to say goodbye to one year, while welcoming in a brand-new 365-day sprint full of endless possibilities. You know what else that means? It’s time to make your New Year’s Resolutions!
I can hear the questions now: “What’s the point? Does anybody ever keep their New Year’s Resolutions?”
Well, sure. If you’re SMART about it…
The reason New Year’s Resolutions have a reputation of falling by the wayside somewhere around mid-January is because many people don’t build in parameters to ensure their success. Sure, we can resolve to “write more songs” and “play more shows,” but those vague proclamations don’t give us any true benchmarks.
That’s where the SMART goal setting philosophy comes in. The acronym SMART stands for:
Specific: Does your goal contain words that will inspire particular actions?
Measurable: Are there metrics/data benchmarks that signify success?
Achievable: Are the goals within your scope, and attainable within the established timeframe?
Relevant: Are your goals relevant to your overall mission?
Time-bound: Do your goals have a specific deadline?
There! Now you’re more empowered to set SMARTer goals than ever before. (See what we did there?)
If you’re looking for some ideas on how to put this philosophy into action, here are a few to get you started.
A couple weeks ago, we helped break the news that Music on the Move Studios is now accepting submissions for female musicians and entrepreneurs to participate in their next showcase, which is now set to take place at The Basement East on March 20.
Today, we have even better news: you have more time to submit for consideration!
