Publisher's Summary

In the last decade, no industry has been through as much upheaval and turmoil as the music industry. If you're looking for quick fame and instant success, you're in the wrong field. It's now a democratic DIY business, and any guide to success in these new waters must be told by someone who's already survived them. Giving today's aspiring musicians the practical tools they need to build and maintain a lifelong career, How to Make It in the New Music Business becomes not only a brilliantly compiled tutorial on how to accomplish specific tasks - routing a tour, negotiating contracts, getting paid for Spotify and Pandora plays, or even licensing music to commercials, film, and television - but also a manifesto that encourages musicians to pave their own paths. Iin clear, easy-to-follow chapters, Ari Herstand's necessary and definitive handbook promises to redefine what it means to make it in the brave new world of professional music.

    "An essential read."

    if you're a small to medium level musician and looking to make an impact on your career, read this book. There's not another text on the market with an up-to-date literature on both the industry, and from the perspective of a musician.

    "Friendly, thorough, well informed."

    Not all content is relevant to listeners outside the United States. A little more on international resources - as well as sign-posting of wholly US-centric content - would be helpful.

    "Very good but a bit overwhelming"

    It's a great book and it's still good in 2017. It will probably get dated pretty quickly but so does all books of this kind. If you are a band there are tons of good stuff in here. If you are a solo artist (like me) prepared to be overwhelmed with all the things you feel like you need to do after listening to this book (besides writing great songs, making great records). Sometimes you just wish you did not have to be a jack of all trades to succeed, but I guess that's just the way it is. All or nothing!

    "Best music business book I have ever read!"

    Best music business book I have ever read! Finally a book that gives practical tips and information on today's totally different music industry. I also love that it was written and narrated by a current musician who has actually experienced the things he talks about. I will be recommending this book to my musician friends!
