Today we’d like to introduce you to Tim Azzarano.
Tim, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
From childhood, I had a great passion for music. The passion turned into playing and being in bands and wanting to know as much as possible about theory, industry, business, etc. Promotion is what drove me to want to do more, whether it be booking, marketing, managing, whatever. Promotion of bands and artists I love has always been something I’ve done. I think treating what I do as any other occupation is what got me to where I am today. Working harder at this than any “job” I’ve ever had, skipping meals, skipping playing an instrument and barely getting to the gym. 100% dedication.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has really. Because it is what you make it. Don’t get me wrong; there will be hurdles but the quicker your realize you can’t control anyone else’s actions but you’re own, the quicker it is to move on and get to the next thing.
Reggae 360 – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Day to day is following up with emails, checking in with band members, reaching out to talent buyers and festival promoters, etc. It basically consists of constant communication. Persistent and constant communication between bands, musicians, managers, agents, promoters and talent buyers. Whether it be email, text, group chats, phone calls, conference calls; there’s always a conversation to be had.
We all have a passion for this. I can’t think of much that might set me apart. But I’m extremely proud of how far I’ve come just from doing something I love, helping others achieve their dreams.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Nothing. You can’t learn something if it’s never been presented to you. So, in the beginning, you’re always kind of reacting. But then you learn how to prepare for all those things you might have been reacting to and it becomes second nature. Everything is a learning lesson. I guess if the opportunity had presented it to myself, I would have intern’d for a company that would have taught me those things from jump. LOL
