Music Growth Engineer
I'm Andrew Apanov, and I help musicians, music companies and music startups grow their brands online.
What I'm currently working on
You'll find me busy with the agency, constantly improving services for our clients. I release a new podcast episode every other week, regularly share exclusive insights and lessons with my patrons, and post growth tips for music startups in the recently launched Musicticker Telegram channel. When not online, I'm probably running a mountain or wandering around EU.
