really struggling to find anything in the first 86 chapters that isn't common sense or just really vague and related purely to attitude and behavioural problems. might be worthwhile for very young people and those who are just about to start out but as someone with only a few years in the industry I honestly can't bring myself to finish this in the vague hope that there might be a handful of things that might be beneficial to my progression.
"a necessity for anyone in any part of music biz"
Even if your just thinking about doing music full time. This book tells you everything you need to know to get going, and stay comfortable within the industry.
"Very passionatlly read"
I really enjoyed this book.
The detail and length are encyclopedic. In my opinion this just shows the author's love for the subject and his caring for those that will read this book.
There are passion and experience in his voice that turn a potentially dry and dusty topic into an interessting chat with a long time and trusted friend.
Easily worth twice the number of stars.
"Fantastic perspective on the music industry"
I want every artist I work with to read/listen to this book. If you plan on a career in music this book sets the stage on what must be done to make a living at it.
"Calling this book a "must read" is an understatement"
Jam packed with information for any musician planning on making steady income with music. Loren Weisman makes sense of it all in away that honest but not overwhelming.
"Must listen for local bands and musicians!"
This book is great! I would have to say that a lot of people don't think of the business of music all the way through. Loren does a great job of giving a detailed crash course on how to be a responsible musician. If there is anything about your music and the business of music that confuses you or seems like it's in this unknown abyss that is for managers and labels to take care of, then you need to read or listen to this book! Even if you don't handle everything yourself, you need to know what is expected of the people that do handle a certain area of your music. Don't let sketchy and cricked "industry professionals" take advantage of you! Like Loren says in the book,"put the same effort into your music business plan, as you put into your music it's self!"
"Everything I hoped for and more!"
This is a must read for anyone considering a career in any business not just music. To be honest there is even parts that can help with relationships with a friend or significant other.
Great Book! I'm grateful to Mr. Weisman
For providing such a gem for aspiring artist.
"This is THE book"
Brilliant book. You get a real sense of who the Author is as an individual which keeps you engaged. He will tell you the do's and dont's, the when's and where's, and the how's and why's of the music business. Stop reading reviews and buy it already, you won't regret it.
"Recommended for all musicians"
Perfect for inexperienced, but beneficial for experienced musicians as well.
Every aspect of the musician's career analyzed very thoroughly.
"A must read for any musician!"
This book is a brilliant read. And a must for any music entrepreneur wanting to succeed in the game. EA
