Representation Matters: Jes Tom

I was an actor once. I wanted to be a film director, but I went to an acting class and it was love. I trained for years, did a lot of college productions and some in NYC. I got myself a manager and had offers coming. To the bare eye, things were looking up! But the thing is, they weren’t. […]

Enjoy Your Summer with Great Music at “Songbook Summit”
