Bobbi Silver doesn't sing or play an instrument, but as a promotion representative for a major label (Interscope/Geffen/A&M), she helps musicians get heard through radio airplay and at live-music venues. In 1969, when Silver entered the music industry, she only knew of one other female music promoter in the country. Today, she's an entrenched success, working closely with artists in their pursuit of mainstream success.
