3 Of My Current Favorite Tools For Musicians

tools for musicians

We are inundated and over-saturated with information in 2015.

Which is fantastic, and yet difficult to know what is helpful and what is not.

But fear not, if you’re an independent artist, I put together a list of three of my favorite resources to help you in your craft and career:

1. All You Need To Know About The Music Industry (by Donald Passman)

Making all aspects of the business-side of this industry accessible and practical.  Thankfully, Don updates the book regularly as the laws and industry change – so make sure you’re picking up the newest version, not just a second-hand $.78 version on Amazon!

2. Brand Like A Rockstar (by Steve Jones)

You’re not just a singer.  You’re not just a writer.  You’re not just a performer.  You’re a brand.  And once you understand that, it will change the way you approach every aspect of your career.  This is a must read.

3. Billboard.biz

Not only do you need to be aware of musically what's going on in the industry, but you need to be familiar with the ins and outs of the business.  Where is the industry headed, and who is shaping it?  Billboard.biz has got you covered.

Of course all of the information in the world is useless unless you know how to implement it for your unique needs as an artist and brand.  Let’s talk about how we can do that together.  Email me here.
