Followed by the ability to explain how he walked the walk.
This book is refreshingly honest and covers tips and tricks that not only can EVERYONE one in the music can appreciate, but really, EVERYONE in EVERY job sector can appreciate.
I have bought 5 copies for friends, colleagues, and co workers. and I will be buying more. Not to sound sacrilegious, but this book is literally the bible of how to get anywhere in the music industry.
After I'm done reading this, I will read this again and again. There is literally THAT much information in this book. I even got the kindle digital copy when I'm on the road as a reference tool!!
I cannot speak highly enough about this book, and you would be doing yourself a major disservice if you don't follow this guide. This book will dictate the future of music.\
PS- ONCE you buy the hard copy, do yourself a favor and purchase the digital kindle copy. Its only $0.99 cents when you purchase the kindle copy after you purchase the physical copy! Thats a steal compared to the regular price of $7.99!! Take it on the go and use it as a digital reference guide!!!
Unlike many how-to guides, in this book the author does not shy away from revealing his own mistakes, and offers them as anecdotal evidence that he does, in fact, know of what he speaks. For anyone who needs to develop a personal plan for success, reading this book is like having the author take you by the hand and gently but firmly show you where you may need improvement, offering concerete examples, advice, and planning suggestions the entire way.
This is a book that no one will ever regret reading.
As touring musicians, we immediately recognized the legitimacy of the author's description of his experiences on the road and in the studio. Many other books will give you simplistic solutions- "put together a press kit.... hire a publicist... get a deal." Not this book. This book presents a realistic yet optimistic view of what it means to be a recording and performing artist in America TODAY. You will NOT find descriptions of how you should send your package to an entertainment attorney or why you need a national radio campaign. You WILL find practical, common-sensical advice that you can start applying NOW, to your project. In particular, the chapters on touring, branding, and marketing are very informative, effective, and easy to follow.
It is easy to read through this book and NOT apply the advice the author is giving. DON'T BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE! Buy this book and start DOING what it tells you to do right NOW. To get some momentum and professionalism into your project today, pick up this book today and start WORKING toward your DREAM. No musician should be without a dream, and no musician should be without this book.
