More About the Author

I'm a music marketing guy and founder of Music Marketing [dot] com, which is also the domain for my blog, by the way.

Each week, I'm heard on the syndicated radio show, Music Business Radio, a music industry talk radio show for musicians, songwriters, and others in the music business. If it's not available in your area, you can listen to it online. Do a search for "music business radio" in Google or iTunes and it will pop up.

My latest book on the music business is called Six-Figure Musician - How to Sell More Music, Get More People to Your Shows, and Make More Money in the Music Business.

I've been in the business of music marketing since 1995, so that is what I'm best known for, but I actually got into the music business as a musician.

I say this to let you know that, if you're a musician, I know where you're coming from.

Having been to school for music, I know that "academics" and the business of music can destroy what music is supposed to be. Music should be fun, it should be an expression of you, and it should be something that connects people.

I write books with these things in mind. I want to show you that music marketing can be just as exciting as the music itself.

4.0 out of 5 stars This CD is fabulous! May 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This CD is WONDERFUL! I have worked directly with David at his Nashville New Music Conference and he is a wealth of knowledge, experience and success.

He does a great job of sharing his concepts by presenting the information clearly, positively, and in an approachable format.

The CD helped me to discover new avenues for furthering my career through great ideas like building a support team to help me to promote my music.

It's worth it :)

5.0 out of 5 stars wisdom for TODAY'S Music Business May 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a must have for amateurs AND professionals! David urges us to take off the blinders and see the true state of this industry. The day after reading "14 Qualities", I walked into a wine/cofee bar and scored a $300 gig for this coming Sunday! As an independant artist, I'm starting to realize that I must create opportunities every day....This book must be kept close by for reference, it just has TOO much great info for me to digest at once! David takes it to the streets with specific ways to reach your goals, his advice is universal and works for anyone. Thanks for getting me off the couch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not an ounce of fat..... May 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the first time I have listened to David. There is only meat on this CD. He is straight up and cuts to the chase. I have been in this business as a performer and writer for a long time and you see all kinds of things to lure people in. David has a direct, honest approach that rings true with facts and doesn't gloss over that it takes consistant hard work to be a success and it can be done. His experience shows us some things work and some things don't....SO QUIT DOING THE STUFF THAT DOESN'T WORK! I love the fact that I can have a guy like him in my corner, by playing the CD and looking for more of his words of wisdom. He knows you can do it and he'll show you how.

3.0 out of 5 stars Common Sense That Helps Us Get There April 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
It is so often the little things that make the biggest difference in life. As an obssessed musician I focus all my energies into music and becoming succesful. The music and rock and roll attitude come naturally for me but dealing with my talents doesn't. The 14 qualities that David Hooper writes about in this publication not so much taught me but reminded me of what it really takes to network and build relationships. Even when all the hard work on recording an album has been done, you've still got to get it out there. David helps you in this not with huge contact lists but with a spiritual guidance into how you can become a better human being which then makes more people want to work with you. It works too. My press kit has become far more profesional and I am now starting to recieve very favourable feedback from doors that were once unlocked. This is not a ground breaking publication but it is filled with positivity, common sense (which most musicians blatantly lack) and a spiritual awareness which rubs off on those that read it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music Education! April 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
David Hooper is honest and direct. Most Musicians, Songwriters or Music Business Professionals have an unrealstic idea on how they are going to make it. Hooper's advice will put a realistic view on what it takes to become successful. Throw it in your CD player and get educated while driving to your next gig.

5.0 out of 5 stars a different take on success April 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Dave Hooper is a dedicated guy. He won't tell you about chord progressions or that certain music geat is good even if those things are sometimes important. Dave is different - he has identified 14 qualities of successful musicians and we could all benefit from his advice. I'm starting a new record label very soon so this information timely and i'm dedicated to following his great advice in my plans. Worth it!
