During my freshman year of college, I interned at a PR music firm in London. When I arrived back home, I was so inspired, I decided to start an independent music blog called Creative Spotlights. I wanted to know what it takes to make it in music and also contribute something to the independent artists out there. I wanted to provide a tool to help promote them. Before I knew it, I ended up with over 300 interviews. My business partner and I then put together music showcases, open mics, etc.
In The Spotlight: Over 100 Voices in Music
A few years after creating the blog, Creative Spotlights, I met my business partner and she had inspired me to co-write a book with all the advice from the different interviews I had on my blog. This book spotlighted over 100 artists, producers and industry executives. We were asked from the Artist Relations Manager, Judd at Guitar Center, to do a workshop for our book. This was an amazing experience! It helped me realize my passion for leading and empowering artists. This past summer in 2016, my former partner and I decided to close the business and both do our own thing. This is where Dani Felt Consulting was born.
