Interview with Andy Burkhart (@andyb602
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Met Rappin 4tay and learned the ropes of the music industry and found out I could perform and manage, so I also started a music label.
Can you share the most interest in what exciting happened to you since you started doing this?
I would say hanging out with Steve Aoki. He’s an amazing guy
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
Take time for yourself and your family.
None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a person you are grateful for who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? *
I’m thankful for the promoters and artists I’ve met. I would also say Rappin 4tay for trusting me to be his manager at one point and always bringing a friend.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? *
I donated tons of time to different charities. I also help the youth with any music questions and give them the best advice I can. Even older artists’ knowledge is power
Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
He who walks around with hands in pockets feels cocky. I was at an event /awards show. Artists had walked past me and kind of number into me and said nothing. Later that night, I saw this same person again and became friends. The lesson here is don’t get too cocky; always be humble. You never know who you might run into
