Artist as Entrepreneur: Making Art + A Living with Zoë Keating on #cjLIVE – Wed May 2nd

zoe keating on chase jarvis liveUPDATE!! If you’re reading this now – the LIVE broadcast is TODAY. Check out the post below and be sure to tune into today — 11am SEA time (2pm NYC & 19:00 London) — and enjoy the show. See you on air in a few…

Now more than ever before, we artists are entrepreneurs. Born from opportunity or necessity or both, we have become the CEO’s of ourselves. We create our art and our brand, and then–regardless of whether we’re commercial- or fine-artists, or both–we share, market, strategize, license, sell, distribute, invest, manage, and collect on that art ourselves.

For those that have cracked this nut – good for you. For the rest of artists–which is a disproportionally huge chunk–who are struggling to make the art, the future, the business happen, please allow me introduce you to Zoë Keating. Take my word for it…few–if any–creatives in the world run their own career better than Zoë. As a classically trained musician turned avant-garde cellist–or ‘avant cellist’ as she calls herself–she has mastered the balancing act between art & commerce, between artist & fan. And that’s why she’ll be my next guest on chasejarvisLIVE this Wednesday, May 2nd. Prepare to learn the secret sauce for ‘Artist as Entrepreneur’, how she created a fanbase of millions and don’t miss her LIVE PERFORMANCE where she’ll blow you away with her cello like you’ve never seen one played before. #Respect. Follow @zoecello, check out her compelling music before the show and follow me @chasejarvis on twitter to get updates now until the show and beyond.

***And last but not least… 2 things very important…:

1. Score. In order to pimp this show and help bring together another gi-normous worldwide online audience, Zoe will be giving away 2 signed CD’s and perhaps some merchandise if we can round it up. To score one of these collector items, send out a creative and interesting tweet that contains the URL (or short url) to THIS post AND hashtag #cjLIVE starting NOW and ending at the beginning of the show on Wednesday. Enter as many times (tweets) as you want – tweet and retweet – we’ll be watching out for your shoutouts.

2. Print it. If you want to score a one-of-a kind signed photo that I shoot of Zoë, tune in during the show – I’ll tell you how.

    Chase – Never heard of Zoe before and having watched some of the videos and listened to some of her music, I’m really looking forward to this.
    Thank you for bringing her work to my attention.

    This sounds like a very intriguing event, I’ve just listen to some of Zoe’s music and I really liked it, she’s a true artist! it’s going to be interesting to hear how she balances her art with the commercial side of the business. Looking forward watching you photographing Zoe too.

    Not really a big fan of hers but the attention she gets is truly note worthy.

    I am blessed to get grown up with Harry Kalas calling each baseball game of my childhood, living in the Philadelphia area. I cried once i observed about his death, and I can nevertheless listen to his “outta here” homerun calls when I’m watching games today. Since his passing, the Phillies will participate in the clip of him singing “High Hopes” following just about every win. It can make me wish that a great deal much more for a victory.
