Tons of information

Tons of information! Leaving no stone unturned, this book gives you insight into the mindset you need to give yourself a chance in the music business.

I manage a few artists and wanted to read a book that would help me get more practical about helping them navigate the business. This book is very inclusive to all kinds of artists, including Christian artists, whom I currently work with. This book gives very helpful advice to navigate the industry and practical steps and tips to do it well. After this book every artist should feel set up to get their music out there and do it well. Love this book and I'm going to pass it on to all the artist I know.
