Hello. My name is Tommy Darker. I'm a musician and thinker about the future of music. I'm a writer about the Musicpreneur on Medium and founder of Darker Music Talks.
What I do.
"Every innovative music day leads to Tommy Darker. This kid is up to something exceptional."
Who am I?A life dedicated to music
In August 2012 I quit my well-paid job to focus entirely on solving a specific problem: Musicians and artists don't make money to sustain their living and re-invest in their art. That leads to frustration and hurts art creation itself. I want to simplify things and make them work for independent musicians. My weapons: Clear overview of the shape of the media world, marketing research, human psychology, current trends and artistic integrity, implementing everything real time to my own band, SideSteps, so I can prove it works. On my way to build something extraordinary, I question everything and talk with everyone who has something interesting to say. A bit more about me.
PS.You can contact me anytime on Twitter, Facebook or email. If you're in London, I'd love to arrange a coffee with you (You're lucky, I drink a lot of coffee). I can consult you for pizza.
Here's my music.
"A musician who is just a musician can never become a good musician" (paraphrasing the quote of Vernon L. Smith, Nobelist in 2002, Economics)
