Erik Koskinen came to DIY 360 last Friday. Erik is a great Americana songwriter hailing from Detroit, MI and settling in Minneapolis a few years ago. He has been building a reputation as an outstanding songwriter and guitarist largely through his weekly Nye’s Polonaise Room gig with Molly Maher, a destination point for local music journalists, musicians and music fans on Wednesday nights. Erik has established himself as a reputable producer with an emphasis on using older analog gear.
DIY 360 is a weekly event hosted by Adam Levy. The goal is to introduce students to professionals in the field who have been successful, frequently by adapting to changes in the business where they make use of multiple skill sets. Guests share information about their careers, their philosophies about professionalism and their art. Guests often give advice to budding artists, entertainment business professionals, producers and engineers. DIY 360 is an opportunity for students to network with those working in the field and with each other as they work toward career success.
