Despite the romance of the music industry, it is just that, an industry.  Which means that having some basic business skills will help set you on your merry way to success, whatever that means for you.

To make life a little easier as there’s tons to talk about business wise, I’ve split this section up into four different parts which will hopefully make things a little easier to digest and for you to find what you’re looking for.  Content will be added regularly so make sure you check back here often and if there’s something you really want, feel free to drop me a line.

Sound – the bit about your music. From songwriting to collecting royalties, there is so much that goes on with the creation of music and you can find all the latest posts relating to that here.

Live – the bit about your gigs.  How to get them and how to get the most out of them.  Oh and how to actually get paid for them!  Yes, you can actually earn money from gigging believe it or not.  Find all the latest stuff relating to gigs here.

Swag – the bit about your merch, the swag you make to keep your fans happy (and you on the road).  Find all the latest content relating to that here

Amp – the bit about your marketing.  In other words amplifying your message to get it out there to the masses.  This section concentrates on your website, email marketing and social media, as well as other types of press.  Believe it or not, you can’t just pay a PR company to do everything for you so it’s good to have an idea of some of the things you can do yourself.  A little bit cheaper too!  Find all you need here
