Jake Udell

I am the founder of TH3RD BRAIN, a modern entertainment company dedicated to creating together with the most talented people in the world in a way that inspires others to accomplish their dreams. I manage Grace VanderWaal, Gallant, ZHU, Krewella, and others. It is because of them I have been blessed to achieve success in this competitive industry.

At TH3RD BRAIN, we also operate an independent record label and launched the first accelerator for recording artists, which has signed talent such as NoMBe and Emmit Fenn.

I am recently engaged to my amazing fiancé, Rachel, passionate about reading, and consistently exploring self-improvement as I am always committed to finding a better way.

I wrote dozens of posts on facebook in 2017 under the name #20something Thought of the Day, and after receiving great feedback from my community, I decided to take the next step with Art of a Manager. My goal is to share ideas, art, and solutions that contribute to the music industry and our world.

I’ve never done this before so am grateful to you for subscribing and providing feedback at every turn.

I was largely inspired by Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures, who has a blog titled AVC, standing for A Venture Capitalist. He has written something every day since September 2003. Hoping I can keep a streak going that long… As my friend James Clear writes, if you’re starting a habit, and miss a day, just get back on track. And that’s what I plan to do. It’s my intention to share with you every day so thanks for reading in advance.

Let’s create together .
