Balanced Breakfast is an international community within the music industry. Varying by location, musicians and other industry professionals come together, often weekly or monthly, to discuss the challenges they face and work together to find singular and unified solutions. This collaboration not only helps launch individual careers, but strengthens the local music scene. While there is a strong networking component to Balanced Breakfast, its primary goal is to build community and invest in the idea that we are stronger together than we are alone---a philosophy with clear resonance around the world.
