Situated on the second floor of the River Music Experience building in Davenport, IA, is The Underground Economy, a full-scale media and production house which bridges the gap between art and entrepreneurship.  Containing a podcast studio, a recording studio, and a content editing station, the space is available to creatives via a variety of membership options, with the goal to become an incubator for the arts within the Quad Cities.

Listen to our conversation here with Josh Graves, the Founder of The Underground Economy, about the digital community he is convening, the value of education and mentorship for budding artistic entrepreneurs, and the importance of collaboration within the local artistic community.

Earlier in his career, Josh Graves worked in the large underground rap scene, recording, mixing, and mastering hip-hop and rap music while also providing videography and graphic design services.
