55:16

Johnny Franck of Bilmuri (and formerly Attack Attack) joins the podcast to discuss how to make a living as a musician, what he was able to learn from rappers, and what you should do instead of worrying about what gear you have. We dive deep into treating music as a business and you won’t want to miss it.
