KENNY SALCIDO QUOTES FROM THE INTERVIEW
“I tell artists, keep pushing, keep flooding emails. Because at some point, maybe there might be an A&R executive tired, s/he might come home late at night, and you never what they click on”
“Be a bit entrepreneurial nowadays, start off independent, and start off trying to touch all the aspects of the artists in management.”
