Review

LIBRARY JOURNAL REVIEW, SEPTEMBER 2009
Cutler, an independent musician, composer, educator, and consultant, has produced an indispensable guide for the budding performer who wants to take his or her career to the next level. Filled with case histories and relevant interviews with over 165 musicians, Cutler's book focuses on the entrepreneurial side of the music business. Emphasizing the value of creativity, risk, and, yes, branding, Cutler demonstrates that many of the qualities necessary for good musicianship are applicable to the business side of an artist's career as well. Over 1000 links to additional resources—e.g., job listings, blogs, camps, homepages for interviewed musicians, lists of recommended books and magazines, networking sites—are available for free on the companion web site, www.thesavvymusician.com. Verdict: Packed with tools and strategies for funding, marketing, recording, and performing, this is an essential read for aspiring performers who want to remove the word starving from their vocabulary. Highly recommended.—Bill Baars, Lake Oswego P.L., OR
