About Jared Covington

My name is Jared, and I’m a music geek.

 Jared Covington

Unlike many music geeks, however, I was able to turn my love of music into a career.

I spent the last decade working with some of the most important artists and releases of our time, including Outkast, The Strokes, Justin Timberlake, Spiritualized, Bruce Springsteen and many others. 

My experience includes:

  • Selling music directly to retail accounts
  • Crafting creative marketing and sales plans for both developing and established artists
  • Working closely with both national and independent reatailers, as well as with hundreds of artists and managers
  • Developing extensive new media and online marketing campaigns, as well as new music products
  • Interviewing more than 100 artists for dozens of various very popular podcasts
  • Training others to use technology to sell and promote music

(Visit LinkedIn for all of the details)

Now, I use that experience to help independent musicians learn what they need to stay independent, helping them to earn a living from doing what they love, and helping them to do it on their terms. I do this through this website (MusicIsMyDayJob.com) as well as via one-on-one coaching and consulting for both bands and individual artists.
