About the Host - James Newcomb


My name is James Newcomb. I founded MusicPreneur.Com in June of 2016, and the first episode of the podcast went live on January 1, 2017.

I'm just a regular guy. I've been married for 12 years and we have a terrific son who's 4 going on 17 🙂

We live in Holly Springs, NC which is just south of Raleigh. I was employed by the U.S. Army as a musician for 12 years. I had assignments in KY, GA, NC and Seoul, Korea. In fact, I began my first podcast titled Outside the Music Box while stationed in Seoul in March, 2015!

I started the MusicPreneur.Com podcast and business because it's a combination of two passions of mine: music and commerce.

They're both incredibly powerful forces that can be used for good or not so good purposes.

My goal with MusicPreneur.Com is to help musicians discover the good in both music and commerce in order to create music that reflects their true self and generate enough revenue to take care of themselves and those who depend on them for sustenance.

I was a professional trumpet player for many years. Outside of the Army, I played in orchestras and ensembles all over the world.

These days, my podcast is my instrument. It's how I express myself and believe me when I say I like to tinker with it!
