PBLA Industry Talks: Writing Platinum Hits with Andrew Goldstein

PBLA Industry Talks is a new series in which Point Blank LA's key music business instructor Marko DeSantis sits down with some of the music industry's biggest names to chat about their careers, their insights into the music business, the skills it takes to achieve success, and more. Marko is an industry legend in his own right, best known as the lead guitarist for the rock band Sugarcult, with whom he received a RIAA-Certified Gold® Record for the debut album Start Static. For this Industry Panel session, Marko will be joined by multi-platinum producer Andrew Goldstein.

He has co-written and produced numerous hits, most notably the 2019 double-platinum hit single "Hot Girl Bummer" with longtime collaborator, blackbear. Andrew also makes music as a solo artist under the moniker FRND.

For this industry talk, Andrew will share his in-depth industry knowledge and expertise on producing and writing platinum hits. Andrew will walk attendees through his typical songwriting sessions with artists and how this can lead to producing chart-topping hits.
