The publisher, producer
Xavier Collin was able to change WTPL Music, structure single-artist, to a tool based on publishing, deploying its work successfully on real events, real talent. The vision of the overall project of an artist is the bedrock of collaboration. Contact person, with a strong international address book, it became a time accelerator. Speed required to start the career of an artist. Its main engine is the confidence that the artist gave him.
