Questlove has shaken up music in dozens of ways and in many roles, from transforming hip hop as the co-founder of The Roots to producing the GRAMMY-winning Hamilton soundtrack (one of his five GRAMMYS). He has authored bestselling books, served as musical director for Jay-Z and D'Angelo, advised music services and startups, spearheaded his own radio channel and podcast, produced scores and soundtracks for film and television, and continued to create and uplift the music and entertainment industry as a whole. He is perfectly positioned to glean insights into the creative tools and business technologies that can make a difference to artists of all genres and career stages. In this dynamic conversation with Jacqui Louez Schoorl, Co-Founder and CEO of Jaxsta, and CD Baby's own Kevin Breuner, Questlove will share what he's learned, how he does it all, and what the future might hold for freethinking, spirited creators.
