Adding to an already massive online arsenal of professional development resources, Music Industry Inside Out today announces the launch of Season #3 on March 30, which will see their video interview library leap to over 90 of Australia's leading industry figures.
Packed with real advice and in-depth insights from legends working right now in the music industry, Season #3 boasts Gregg Donovan (Wonderlick Entertainment), Esti Zilber (Sounds Australia), Leanne DeSouza (Association of Artist Managers), Jenna Burns (Level 2 Publishing), Katie Rynne ( Select Music), Maria Amato (AIR exec director) and Stu McCullough (Amplifire Music), to name but a few.
Aimed to support music industry professionals at a range of career levels, the site's music mentors cover the full gamut of the music industry from artistry, management and entertainment law to sync, marketing, touring and beyond.
“I would encourage anyone taking the music business baton to subscribe and learn from not only me, but so many generous, clever and insightful people,” said Leanne De Souza, who was named in The Power 50's Most Influential Figures in the Australia’s Music Industry earlier this month.
The 29 new music mentors join an illustrious lineup of who's who in the music industry, including Chugg Entertainment's Andrew Stone, Damien Costin of 123 Agency, multi ARIA award-winning artist, Katie Noonan, Jen Cloher, Mia Dyson, Glenn Dickie and BIGSOUND programmer, Maggie Collins.
"It’s been so amazing to have successful industry members share their knowledge," said Sydney songwriter and Music Industry Inside Out subscriber, Alex The Astronaut.
"I can safely say I wouldn’t be in the great position I am as an artist if I hadn’t had such an awesome and easy music business and artist education system there to help me along!"

More about Music Industry Inside Out
Music Industry Inside Out is the brainchild of music industry veteran, Martine Cotton. Launched in late 2014 on the back of running regional workshops for musicians, Martine swiftly recognised a dire need for a powerful, easy-to-use online resource that allowed emerging and practicing professionals to gain access to the industry's best in order to become their best. And, with over 25 years in the industry, Martine was perfectly positioned to tap her powerful industry network on the so-called shoulder to provide practical advice and in-depth insights that ultimately, in her view, make for a stronger, more sustainable industry now and for years to come.
"There are so many barriers to career longevity in the music industry and I had to use my decades of experience and relationships to remove one of the biggest - access to the industry's leading figures," said Martine.
"It can take years to build up your network of contacts and understand how all aspects of the music business work. Giving unlimited access to current, best practice across all facets of the biz is so powerful in building a well-informed, thriving career and industry as a whole."
From running and booking one of the country's most iconic venues, The Zoo and being program manager for key industry body QMusic to working on events and conferences like Splendour In The Grass, BIGSOUND, Little BIGSOUND, Queensland Music Awards and unconvention, there's very little about this industry Martine doesn't know!
Her immense experience and undying passion for the local scene has led Martine to develop Australia's leading online resource for music industry.
