"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs.
There is also a negative side"
Hunter S. Thompson
It's not necessarily so. Let me explain...
There are more sad songs than quotable lyrics lameting the struggles that the indie musicians go through in an effort to make a living doing what they love.
If your a singer songwriter or solo performer I have a question for you...
What's the best way to achieve success in the music business?
What is your answer?
Play more gigs, mostly in venues your would prefer not to play?
Perform covers the crowds want to hear instead of your original songs
Get thousands of followers on social media?
Take a lot of merch and CD's to your shows to make sales?
Get your music on all the streaming platforms and get local radio play?
Some of these things might work if your lucky, are you feeling lucky!
I believe what all artists want a reliable way to build their own music business.
Imagine, if you could spend all your time being truly creative, instead of being out there hustling for gigs in clubs and bars - which are full of people eating, drinking, watching the game or just talking to their friends, or doing whatever their doing instead of listening to you.
I call these the truly pointless gigs.
What if I told there was a better way!
One which was focused on you and your music while developing a truly active and committed loyal fan base.
How would you like to be able too...
Build real fans and develop a truly supportive community around you.
Truly engage with every person at every show.
All while staying in complete control of your own music business.
Does it sound like the way you want to develop your career!
If you can follow these 4 simple steps, it can be yours:
1. Be able to follow simple steps and instructions
