This Week in Music: Fitz & the Tantrums Manager Brian Klein On The Importance of Daryl Hall (Watch)

This week's installment of "This Week in Music" features Brian Klein, manager for acts like Joe Purdy and Fitz & the Tantrums. Klein, who owns IMINMUSIC Management, elaborates on the hard work involved in the "new model" of independent artist growth, divulging that Fitz himself shelled out $75,000 to $100,000 of his own money to fund his band in the early stages. Subscribing to the tenet "never work harder than your band," Klein also discusses with "TWIM" host Ian Rogers the importance of less well-known music shows like "Live from Daryl's House" (the session show in which artists visit Daryl Hall at his New York home studio to record 4 original and 4 Hall covers, ending in a friendly dinner party), even compared to coveted appearances on talk shows like "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."
