Hi Reddit and IAmA! I'm Benjamin Groff - Music Publisher and Label Executive for over 25 + years! I’m known for signing and developing hit artists, Grammy Award winning writers/producers and opening the 1st U.S. office of Kobalt music. Ask Me Anything!
For the last 25 years, I've been a music publisher, label, and executive, having worked for BMG, EMI Music, Kobalt Music and now running my own publishing operation, Brill Building and label [We Are: The Guard](https://www.wearetheguard.com)
I am here for the next two hours to help answer any and all questions you might have about the music business, be it songwriting, self releasing your music, questions on contracts, mindset, strategy, how to get your music heard, what it takes to make it in the music business, music publishing and/or whatever you might think about (I can't help you so much with your soufflé recipe, however).
I'm also here to talk to talk about my new book ["How Do I Get A Record Deal? Sign Yourself!"](https://amzn.to/3pC57X7), which was just a #1 New Release in 7 Categories at Amazon, as well as my Teachable Courses, ["2021 DIY Label Release Plan"](https://benjamingroff.teachable.com/p/release-blueprint) and ["Insider Secrets to Hit Songwriting."](https://benjamingroff.teachable.com/p/insider-secrets-to-hit-songwriting)
