About The Program

Step Up is a jam-packed intensive 6 week program for any artists looking to step up their craft, confidence and business know how.

Once upon a time there were A&R (artists and repertoire) men and women who scouted talent, signed the said talent, and nurtured the artist through the record-making process. The artist, in turn, had someone to bounce ideas off of, a form of quality control, and a chance to explore their creativity. These artists had the luxury of having a creative dialogue that vastly improved their records. Today’s music industry has largely done away with artist development. So nowadays, artists frequently put out inferior records because they don’t have a counter perspective to help ensure the record is the strongest it can be, and because of this, artists often alienate fans and lose out on big industry opportunities.

The Step Up To The Spotlight Artist Development program offers musicians a methodology that could very well make them a marquee artist.

“Carl Cole's Step Up Program is as vital of a foundational course for emerging artist's as it is a career recalibration opportunity for seasoned musicians. I've been a full-time, independent performing songwriter for over a decade now, and there's indispensable information in this program that I wish I had known when I was starting out. Step Up allows me to work from home at my own pace while still benefiting from the nurturing support system of Cari and her exceptional team. This course is a must for any artist, musician, or representative who takes their career seriously.”

- Gregory Douglass

“Carl took my head out of the clouds and helped me create real, tangible, attainable goals. When I started, I was feeling overwhelmed with so many questions about how I should be focusing my energy. With all the information she packed into her program, she really helped me figure out how to stay organized and build a team so I could focus on what I do best - making music. Her positive outlook and holistic approach really resonated with me and set her a world apart. The advice she has shared with me has been invaluable and I will draw on it for the balance of my career. I am so glad I found her!”
