In the wake of the pandemic, we have seen a massive increase of musicians working remotely, performing livestreams, and learning all kinds of alternative ways to generate new sources of income. Our very own Business of Music Manager, Mickey Davis, called up Lisa Bella Donna and had a chat with her to catch up and to see what insights we could take away from a musician who has been working remotely in isolation since long before the pandemic.
