Today’s music creators often diversify their talents among several creative endeavors and business opportunities at once, and Dan Silver is a shining example of the modern-day musician/entrepreneur. In addition to leading his band MOON, he oversees creative operations and marketing as Vice President of Creative for Riptide Music Group, a music licensing company. But he doesn’t stop there—Dan is also the co-founder, executive producer, and talent curator for Quantum Collective and their Southwest Invasion during SXSW in Austin, and somehow finds enough time left over to produce records and remixes for various artists and bands.
