Overview

The music industry is a large, growing, and often impenetrable business. Who you know, what you know, and who knows you are the three most important factors that will determine your success in the music business. "Networking Strategies for the New Music Business" teaches the reader how to break into the insular world of the business and advance their career by creating successful personal relationships. Written by a veteran and recognized expert in the business, the book teaches both professional and aspiring musicians the importance of personal contact as well as proper protocol, etiquette, how to make and maintain contacts, and the right way to submit or get his/her work noticed. Working off of the premise that trends and styles in music change but the people behind the scenes do not, the book helps musicians lay the ground work for an ever-changing career. Learn from the author as he shares both triumphs and setbacks throughout a career that has taken him from biker bars to a prestigious career that involves both teaching and working with world-renowned professional musicians. "Networking Strategies for the New Music Business" combines humor with hard reality to teach the basic social and professional skills that musicians need to succeed in the music business.

    True Tales from the Trenches

    There are music biz books that talk about the same old stuff, and then there is this one -- the author clearly knows his subject matter inside and out, has ongoing relationships at the highest levels of the biz, yet still manages to deliver hard and fast advice for those aspiring to that level. This book is an inspiring, entertaining read that tells the truth.
