Borg is the horse whisperer for musicians baffled by the music business. He
listens, interprets, and explains the oftentimes complex--and even perilous--maze the musician needs to traverse between making music and earning money
In his latest volume, the author walks the reader through everything from
Pursuing a Career in the New Music Industry (in which he offers up 15
valuable tips) through negotiating contracts, finding lawyers, and
understanding music publishing.
Borg breaks down each subject into small, edible pieces so you're not
overwhelmed or confused by what you're reading. Most books on the subject of
the music business require mandates that the reader have a background in law
or economics or accounting to even to begin to understand the dynamics of
what he is reading. But the author approaches this simply and organically in
relaying the information.
If you're out there making music and involved in the creative process, you
need to read this book. You don't want all your hard work flushed down the
toilet because you simply didn't understand the publishing contract you were
signing. Read this first--you'll be happy you did.
