If ever there was a step by step manual for the aspiring artist this book is it. Loren addresses the myths and pitfalls that many aspiring artists will face. It’s a gem of information packed in a practical guide from everything from your mindset to be an artist, to strategies and advice to developing survival skills to pursue your artistry. It is everything an Artist would ever hope to know without knowing real industry insiders. This book is a “must” for any Artist that may not know where to start, or what to do once they have started on their journey. This book provides credible information to empower an Artist to navigate their dream with confidence.

This truly is the ARTIST'S guide to success in the music business.  The author has clearly learned these lessons the hard way and is committed to helping artists avoid the pitfalls of the music industry.  From recording to touring to marketing to relationship-building to everything else in between this book covers all the bases.  This is the ultimate "how-to" guide for working musicians.   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.

This book was recommended by a friend. I have to admit it made me realize things I have been doing wrong. I myself get caught up in how the majority promotes on Social Media. I now see things I can approve, and make myself standout.

This book kept my attention, which is not easy. I have never been a heavy reader, but my love for the Music Business led me to the book. I find it extremely useful for any musician.
