The music industry is not for the faint of heart. Jaime Zeluck-Hindlin knows this from personal experience and continues to rock the world with her amazing talent for finding major hit songwriters and producers. She’s been in and out of all aspects of music and is now the founder and owner of Nonstop Management. Jaime started her career in A&R and after having a true brush with death, she knew that she needed to build something of her own. She’d always equated success with building her own business and finding such success in the industry, and that experience was the impetus she needed to make it happen. Listen as she and Andy chat about her roles in A&R, both for a record label and in music publishing, and how they prepared her to run her own career management company for songwriters and producers. She shares very candid stories from her past and how all of her experiences have made her the manager and business owner that she is today. They also chat about the songwriters she’s signed and the #1 hit songs they’ve written. This includes JKash, Michael Pollack, Jake Torrey, Nick Long, Sam Farrar, Ryann, and more. And one of those songwriters also happens to be her significant other! Artists who have recorded their songs include Jason Derulo & Jawsh 685, Kygo and One Republic, Adam Levine and Maroon 5, Katy Perry, Tate McRae, Charlie Puth, Zedd, the Jonas Brothers, and Machine Gun Kelly, amongst others. Jaime is refreshingly open and honest about her career and the choices that she’s made and this interview was truly spectacular. Listen in to learn more!
