Music On Your Own Terms Episode 23 - Latoya Cooper, The Songstress! After meeting at the CD Baby DIY musician conference in Austin recently and hearing how great her voice is, I just had to get Latoya on the podcast. Not only is her music eclectic stylistically, which is right up my alley, but she just happens to run Music Meets the Boardroom, an organization that provides training for musicians and other creatives, helping them gain skills to manage the business side of their music career. As well as sitting down together to talk about music and business, Latoya graciously shares her struggles with depression, her journey from singing as a child, gaining four (yes 4) degrees including an MBA, feeling unfulfilled in her otherwise successful data analysis career, to now gearing up to pursue music full time and becoming an advocate for legislation for musicians' rights in association with the Recording Academy/Grammys. Phew! This one's a doozie!
