Jim Ward is no stranger to the challenges in the music industry. Having seen virtually every part of it, he has strong opinions about how up-and-coming bands should focus on their own well-being rather than being career leverage for people who have little concern for the artists they’re supposed to support. It’s why the frontman for the Texas-based band Sparta spends a lot of his time mentoring bands and giving back to a community that has given him so much.

Jim spent time chatting with JC about his long storied career, how he has used technology from the very beginning to get the word out, and what he would like his tours to look like in the future. All of this and much more on the latest episode of theFIVE10 Podcast!
