Sophie Morgan + Counting Crows

The bucket list–the idea of completing all of life’s goals before you “kick the bucket”, or, er, die. After curing cancer, inventing a car that won’t get hot in the sun and being able to eat 6 saltines in under a minute, I’d say having your favorite band literally “sing” your praises during a concert would near the top of the list. Our very own Sophie Morgan is now able to check that one off the list. The band one, not the saltines one… that’s just impossible.

Jeremy Henry + Laurie Anderson + Weezer + Dan Black

Hands up! How many of you wanted to be a rockstar when you grew up? Hands up again! How many of you currently sit at a desk from 9-5 (any accountants out there)? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

In Lady Gaga’s case, Rob Fusari would likely come to mind—he’s the man behind her #1 billboard topping hit, “Paparazzi”. Fusari is one of those guys who has collaborated with more artists than we have room to list in this post and who other producers want to work with. With the help of Indaba Music and “The Greens”, member Ben Fowler was able to live out that fantasy. image

Radical Academy + Hollywood Undead + K’NAAN

Let’s be honest… looking for a job sucks. As a musician, all you want to do is focus on making music, but the next thing you know, you’re promoting more than you’re playing and it feels like Rick Ross wrote “Everyday I’m Hustling” about your professional life. It’s easy to think, “Hey, I’m talented! Why can’t a job come looking for me?” Well, through opportunities on IndabaMusic.com, it can. Just ask Radical Academy:
