Drink deep of the culture around you this week with Josh Baker of HI-FI Indy.

We have discovered how to find the next hit artist before everyone else – by listening to this episode about Josh Baker’s journey to developing Fountain Square into a place for young artists to be exposed through his businesses HI-FI Indy, MKOB Presents, and DO317.

The music business is unforgiving at times, and Josh talks about the risk of just breaking even. But, his hustle to “[turn] ideas into experiences – one event at a time,” has led him to strategically form businesses that complement each other to grow a thriving music community in Indy.

“Ultimately the local scene is successful when you can be an artist and make a living doing what you do without having to work a day job” – Josh Baker
