34: Rachel Flotard: Pulling Back the Curtain on Artist Management & Music PR

Episode 034


On the show this week, we’re welcoming Laura’s long-time friend Rachel Flotard, artist manager at Red Light Management and lead singer & guitarist of VISQUEEN. She’s here to discuss her experiences in music management for clients like Neko Case, doing PR for her own band and record label, and how she found her way in the industry. April and Laura also share an Anonymous PR Horror Story from the listening audience about what to do when a manager crosses your boundaries at work, and chat about Sarah Silverman’s recent public statement.
