I plan to change the game – Patterson says. “I have a simple but powerful plan. I’m starting a Temp service for up and coming Rock, Hip Hop, R&B and Country artists.
We will train and develop these artist on Sounds of Knowledge school tours.” Artists will be paid a weekly salary while out on tour.” Patterson smiles as he explains how it’s a win, win situation for the artists involved. It’s a win for the Artist, because he or she is getting paid while the are being developed at the same time building a major following. Performing for thousands of students every week.” I go into more detail in my book “10 Commandments of The Stage”.
10 Commandments of The Stage is a Artist Development Manual. The reason I wrote the book was after guest judging for over 50 talent shows, open mic competitions I saw that 85% of the artist performing had no train… ie Artists Development. I felt like something had to be done. Sir Rod Patterson has been performing for 25 plus years.
