Patrick Clark has been a working musician for nearly a decade. He used to make his living performing at bars, restaurants, weddings etc. On average, he would perform close to 200 shows a year and earn about $30,000 doing so.
When the pandemic hit, he, like many musicians, lost almost all of his income and he realized he was going to have to diversify his income streams. This also just so happened to be when he discovered Produce Like A Boss and started developing his production chops.

I’ve lived with friends’ parents, on people’s couches, and even in my car at one point.
I was always that friend that my more successful friends always had to pick up the tab for if we went out to dinner.
I always had “hand-me-down”... well… everything…
