About Pick Yourself

Pick Yourself Podcast Artwork

My mission with this podcast is to empower you with the strategies, mindset, tactics and tools you need to establish yourself in the electronic music scene. If you believe in self-growth, this is for you.

Instead of offering you quick and easy hacks to exploit the latest social media trend, Pick Yourself is focusing on the things that truly matter: Producing remarkable music in a sea of noise, establishing meaningful relationships with the right people in the music industry, and building an artist brand that stands out.
