Official press release:

Dedicated to educating the next generation of music business entrepreneurs, Outerloop president and CEO Mike Mowery has launched a new educational initiative under the Outerloop umbrella, Outerloop Coaching. Outerloop Coaching consists of online courses, webinars, e-books, and mentoring for aspiring managers and self-managed musicians. Mowery shares everything he has learned over two decades in the business so others can learn how the 21st Century music business really works. For the first time ever, Mike Mowery is opening up his extensive experience and knowledge base to aspiring musicians in an educational capacity. Outerloop Coaching has launched sign-ups for an online course webinar series titled, Sixty Days To Signable, which goes over what it takes to get the attention of record labels, managers and other industry professionals who can help independent bands grow. Individuals enrolled in the course will have the opportunity to interact with Mike Mowery directly via e-mail throughout the program. Sixty Days To Signable will run Wednesday evenings from April 19 until June 7th, at 8pm EST. Visit for more information.

Along with signing up for coaching and Mowery‘s free e-newsletter, current and aspiring music industry workers will be treated to a free download of “Music Management Primer: The Business of Being an Artist”, written by Mike Mowery and Paul Phelps. The e-book is a primer in basic concepts for aspiring managers in the 21st century music business, providing much more detail on these concepts and more advanced additional concepts within the online learning materials through Outerloop. Here is what Mike Mowery had to say about Outerloop Coaching:

“I’m really excited to be able to offer up my extensive experience and knowledge base to aspiring musicians in an educational capacity. If you’re serious about your band’s or personal success, there is no time like the present. This structured course will give you all of the tools you need to get your band from wherever you are to a place where managers, agents and labels will be ready to take you into serious consideration.”

Outerloop consists of several hardworking initiatives under one umbrella, including Outerloop Management, Outerloop Records, and now Outerloop Coaching. Outerloop Records, whose roster currently includes bands Lorna Shore, Chasing Safety, Youth In Revolt, and Megosh, was launched in 2013 by Outerloop Management founder Mike Mowery as a solution for developing artists to take advantage of their recorded rights. Having been in the business for more than a decade, Mowery and Outerloop Management have successfully developed artists such as We Came As Romans, Crown The Empire, Ice Nine Kills, Periphery, Veil Of Maya, Set It Off, and more, and serves great artists like Refused, Escape The Fate, and Darkest Hour. Outerloop Records has already proven success in the past by releasing Ice Nine Kills‘ third album (and first release of the label), The Predator Becomes The Prey, which debuted on Billboard‘s 200, Heatseekers, and Hard Rock charts, and has sold over 20,000 units in the US (according to SoundScan). Now in partnership with Cooking Vinyl, Outerloop Records is ready to take 2017 by the horns with an unrivaled fire to discover and develop artists. Outerloop Group hopes to deliver a diverse roster encompassing all genres and extending their expertise to individuals who wish to thrive within the music industry.
