Words & Music is pleased to extend its helpful “how-to” series for our members, “The Breakdown,” into the realm of short, question-and-answer videos.

 In this episode, former SOCAN A&R Representative Racquel Villagante talks with Shane Gill, the Head of  Music for Opposition, BBTV’s music division, which has built a name in the music industry working with clients Lyrical Lemonade, 21 Savage, Juice WRLD and more. Opposition helps music artists to succeed on their own terms, by growing their fanbases, mastering digital streaming, and monetizing their content.

Our question this time is, “How do I better connect with audiences during live-streams?”
