First i want to start off by telling you a little about myself, I am a Native American who is going to college for music business. Artist Management is dream and what I want to do for the rest of my life. It is a great time to make my dream come true because the music business has fallen into a niche market(which is a matket to a specific group instead of random masses).
Natives already have a niche in place that isn’t really being used. There are over 400 Native Casinos that usually have live music at least three times a week. These caninos have Native Prefrence, which means that if a Native Act wants to play they can get first shot at the job. This is a great oppurtunity for music artist to get on the road,grow their fanbase, and to be able to make a living while performing. The possiblities are endless for someone with drive to go out and get it. Native artist you can be in control of your own music future with just a little help.
This is my dream to put native acts on tour and help them make the best music possible. I want us to be reconized for the great music artist we have and get them the exposure they deserve.
The artist for this post is Kelly Jackson who is a wonderful person with a wonderful voice.

Natives always seem to be last, last to vote, last to have citizenship, last to have religious freedom. Now it seems we are the last to be really seen in the music world. This does not include traditional or flute music that has its own following but our modern artists are not being seen or heard. Native’s have great singers and songwriters that are doing amazing work but just can’t seem to break through.
But now we as a people have a chance to get heard in a big way. The days of needing a big label or a huge recording studio are over!!! With the proper self marketing and online marketing you can start making a splash and reach people all around the world. Its time for native artist to stand up and be heard and now it is possible. Now if you don’t know where to start then you need to talk with an artist manger(one that knows the business and/or has a degree) and let them give you some ideas. Natives lets go and get it done.
My artist of the week is Josh Halverson who can be seen at http://www.joshhalverson.com
