Vehrnon Ibrahim

Music Business Faculty

Vehrnon was a salesman for his father’s cardboard box factory when he was 17. He hated it but needed the money and well, this was his father. Clients were mostly the small bakeries Bangalore is famous for. Cold calls and regular clients, orders for different shaped boxes, numbers and sizes, a silk screen logo print here a cut and fold crease there then haggle over delivery schedules and of course – rates. He got paid plus commissions but it wasn’t how he wanted to earn. Vehrnon wanted to believe in what he was doing, use some unique skill of his own and create money out of that. So he decided – if by the time he hit 21 he was not living off his talent he would resign himself to selling boxes…
Since then he has made a living as a Vice President of Programming for National FM Radio Networks, a House Music DJ, the Frontman of Indian Heavy Metal band Millennium, an Event Manager, an Audio Engineer both live and in studios, a Music Producer and Song Writer, a Stage and Lighting Designer, an Interactive Television Creative Director, a regular Columnist on Music and Creativity… So as it turned out, Vehrnon never did need to go back to making money out of boxes but he did end up making a lot of money out of the box…
Today, Vehrnon is a Music Artist Manager and Founder of FreeWillMusic – a system designed to help music artists make and keep more money… He is a Creative Music and Media Specialist based in Mumbai India helping organizations – Radio | Music | Television | Online | Events – do things differently and do things better with tactics, strategies and solutions based on fresh perspectives with a focus on the future!
