Creativity through the lens of an Artistpreneur coach

Creativity is "seeing something that exists in front of all of us, but thinking up something that doesn't exist."

As Founder & CEO of Artist Collective, Evan Price has worn countless hats in the music industry. At the age of fourteen, he started a booking agency that promoted more than +100 shows, igniting his passion for the business. He then became involved in artist management with several Chicago acts, licensing, booking, digital marketing, and coaching. As a graduate of Columbia College, he used his Bachelor’s Degree in Arts & Entertainment Media Management in Music Business to build his own vision. His mission is to transform artists into what he calls “artistpreneurs” and finally get them out of the 9-5s they hate and back to the music. By using the “M.C.S. Method” or ‘monetizable creative skillset’ Evan and his team can help creatives build a profitable business around the one thing they are the most passionate about. Who says your hobby can’t be your business? Drawing inspiration from the likes of Steve Jobs, Gary Vaynerchuck, and Donald Miller, he discovered the key to a successful brand: an outrageously compelling story. This drove Evan to teach musicians the art of clever storytelling to unlock their success through authentic vulnerability. He has built a very engaged social media following reminding creatives to be self aware, empathetic to their audience, and unwavering in their pursuit of building their music business. His company Artist Collective was given the nod by Billboard magazine as one of the best resources for musicians during the COVID-19 Pandemic and he’s been featured on such programs as The Jam Tv show, Chance the Rapper’s SocialWorks, KissFM, Medium, and more.
