Introducing The Music Business Advice Book

The Music Business Advice Book on the Music 3.0 blogI’m pleased to announce the release of my latest book, The Music Business Advice Book: 150 Immediately Useful Tips From The Pros.

The book is a compilation of 150 helpful quotes from 130 top music pros from various segments of the music industry who previously shared these tips on my Inner Circle Podcast over the course of almost  5 years.

These 150 tips cover everything from following your passion, learning to network, and working well with your musical team, to owning your own content and even figuring out how much to charge for your services. Also included are even some useful music production words of wisdom, as well as the indispensable “10 Rules Of Networking.”

The best part is that it’s available for a short time at a special introductory price of just $0.99 for the electronic Kindle version. All I ask is that you add a short review on Amazon in a few days, since the number of reviews a book accumulates has a direct bearing  on how well it sells, so it will help make it possible for me to continue to do what I do!

The experts quoted in The Music Business Advice Book come from all areas of the music business, including recording and mixing engineers like Bob Brockman, Joe Chiccarelli, Josh Gudwin, and Vance Powell, mastering engineers like Gavin Lurssen and Ian Shepherd, producers like Ken Calliat, Mike Elizondo and Warren Huart, post-production engineers like Scott Gershin and Brian Schmidt, musicians like Pete Thorn, Mark Shulman and Shane Theriot, composers and songwriters like Richard Gibbs, Carmen Rizzo and Martin Page, managers like Candace Stewart, Rick Barker and Antony Bland, music publishers like Jamie Purpora and Greig Watts, label execs like Shan Dan Horan and Shawn Mikle, technologists like Steven Slate and Roger Linn, and music business advocates like Dae Bogen, Dave Kusek and David Scheirman. Of course, this is just a quick sampling as more than 100 additional equally celebrated music authorities also contributed.

Among the many topics covered in the book include:

• how to follow your passion without selling your soul

• learning to network and why it’s critical to finding work

• determining what you’re worth and how to charge for it

• developing the right attitude and why it’s the big key to getting ahead

• discovering the most crucial aspects of your personal music business

• keeping ownership of your own content

• and even a few production gems of wisdom
