In a world where everything seems stacked against the up-and-coming musician - declining CD sales, escalating gas prices, insane competiion - the indie band needs all the help it can get. And a lot of that can be found in this new reference manual. Here, the authors tell you:
- How to license your own music.
- How to create a press kit.
- How to access the Internet/iTunes.
- How to get press.
This is a practical approach to an impractical career. If you're reading this book, you're probably already in a band, have already written songs, and are looking to break into the next level. The steps you need to take are all here. It still requires a lot of effort and diligence and stone cold drive. But with a lot of luck and a bit of praying, you might be the next major download.
If nothing else, The Indie Band Survival Guide reinforces what you've already been doing and lays it all out in simple terms. Keep working. Keep reading. The brass ring is out there.
