Salt Lick Incubator:
Marketing & A&R Intern Job Description
About the Organization
Salt Lick Incubator is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization launching in Fall 2022 that will support emerging musicians with grants, collaborative opportunities, strategy, communication, marketing support, data analytics, and a YouTube platform knit together by an overarching focus on wellness. The Salt Lick Incubator aims to be a supportive community of artists operating within an exploitation-free ecosystem of partners who help young artists discover pathways to sustainable careers.
Music is one of the most powerful tools we have to help people understand, hear, and embrace one another. To support the music-making of our emerging artists is to further a humane approach to one another and the world around us—particularly valuable in light of the division and fractiousness we see in the world.
The Salt Lick Incubator Intern duties will be split between three main functions: A&R, Data/Marketing, and Administrative, the goal being that interns will get a holistic view of what artist development can look like.
