JP KelloggMany people from various aspects in the industry strive to reinvent themselves for the “life after,” but those who have done it as well as John P. Kellogg are on a short list. Some may remember him from this days as a member of Cameo while others may be musically well acquainted with his celebrity clients such as the late Gerald Levert, Eddie Levert, LSG, Walter Beasley and many others.

Kellogg’s course will cover such topics such as the proliferation of 360-degree deals, the value of the copyright, the importance of live performance and more.
