In New Music Business, Ari deconstructs the brightest minds in the music industry, digging deep to find the tools, tactics and strategies that listeners can use to run successful careers of their own. Ari offers straight talk with no fluff and doesn’t let his guests off easy. New Music Business is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Stitcher, Acast and YouTube.



Described by Forbes as “the poster child of DIY music,” LA based Ari Herstand is an entrepreneur, musician, best-selling author, educator, advocate and authority on how to succeed as an independent musician. He has collaborated with acts like Cake, Thirty Seconds to Mars and Ben Folds, and his music has appeared in TV shows, commercials and films. Recently, he co-founded the UnCancelled Music Festival, which Rolling Stone called “the most recent — and one of the larger — of the online music events that have sparked up since COVID-19 put a temporary hold on the live music industry,” as well as advocacy group Independent Music Professionals United (IMPU), where Ari helped write and pass the amendment to get the music industry an exemption under the “gig worker” law AB5. At the helm of his blog Ari’s Take, Ari empowers musicians through the Ari’s Take Academy online music business school and the New Music Business podcast.
