Indie Connect Internships
ARTIST MANAGEMENT, CONSULTING AND TRAINING
Our small but diversified music industry team:
Manages 2 artists
Consults many more artists
Produces a music industry podcast
Publishes an online music industry magazine
Hosts music industry events
A whole lot more!
We are also closely associated with Top 4M Entertainment, a soon-to-launch film and TV production company. We have recently partnered with a program to book artists into schools all around the US and Canada to perform and speak on various social acceptance issues and developed a similar program of our own.
Please note: We do not ‘waste’ your time by having you do menial tasks unless we absolutely need it. We expect you to dive in and become an important, active member of the team. If we can’t teach you what you want to learn, we’ll tell you we’re not the right fit for you.

- Assisting artists with tasks (e.g. learning how to set up a Spotify artist profile)
- Helping to market the company, all of our products and our artists

- Working on a film/TV set

- Basically, you will be asked to jump in wherever you are needed.

We enjoy interns who can spend some time in the office. However, we work a lot on Zoom, Skype and conference calls so we accept interns who need to work from home or school.
We are located inside Fort Knox Studios, a gigantic new music incubator currently under construction.
