FirstAct was born in the Fall of 2019 as a service to connect local music acts in Montreal to undersold shows.
My partner on the First Act project is Harrison Goldstein a talent buyer for Webster Hall turned Data Scientist.
The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic made our original business model infeasible in the short term leading to us pivoting the project to become a podcast and newsletter.
If you're interested in stories about breaking into the music industry, then give a listen to the First Act Podcast.
Our landing page and branding were designed by the fine folks over at Design Joy.
