“Start small and don’t skip steps” isn’t just an axiom embodied by Diana Gremore’s own career, it’s something she encourages artists and their teams to think about when approaching their own growth trajectories — especially during the uncertainty of live music in a post-COVID world. In this episode, we chat with Paradigm Talent Agency's first-ever Business Intelligence Analyst about creating her own role in the music industry, how artists benefit from brand partnerships, and what the future of live music (and live streaming) looks like after coronavirus.
Originally from the sunny sprawling suburbs of San Diego, California, after graduating from the University of California, San Diego, Diana Gremore packed up all of her things and moved to New York City, sleeping on a friend’s couch and giving herself just two months to make it in the Big Apple. And she did. For the past three and a half years, Diana has worked at Paradigm (not including the year and a half she was a part of AM Only, which was acquired by Paradigm in 2017), one of the entertainment industry’s most important and highly regarded talent agencies. While she now holds the illustrious title of Business Intelligence Analyst, it’s a role she created for herself, working her way up from receptionist and office manager. But “start small and don’t skip steps” isn’t just an axiom embodied by Diana’s own career, it’s something she encourages artists and their teams to think about when approaching their own growth trajectories — especially during the uncertainty of live music in a post-COVID world.
