Hello fellow music lovers!

Intro to Me
My name is Erin, and I am an Americana singer-songwriter based in Denver, Colorado. Music has always been my greatest passion, but it so happens that I am also a huge computer geek--well, perhaps just a geek in general. I have a Master's Degree in Entertainment Business, and for my day job I work as a web developer and conversion rate optimization specialist at a digital marketing agency.

In addition to working as a musician, I have also worked for promoters, record labels, and management agencies in the music industry. In my years of experience, I've realized that independent musicians have do more than just play music: they have to be entrepreneurs, marketers, and web designers, too! That's asking a lot of anyone, especially someone who just wants to get back to the music.

My Question to You
That being said, I would love to hear more about what you think are the greatest technological challenges facing indie musicians. What did you/are you having trouble with? Your website? Your EPK? Pitching your music to other professionals? As someone who wants to help other musicians put their best foot forward, how can I help address these problems?
