Spotting Fake Record Labels

07/18/2017 18:52:55 PM

Dealing With Bad Press

07/15/2017 13:16:01 PM

Social Media, Aesthetic and You

07/02/2017 07:07:23 AM

A Sense Of Possession In The Industry

06/22/2017 14:16:05 PM

Knowing Your Value

05/25/2017 22:02:55 PM

Band Photos And How To Not Screw Them Up

05/20/2017 19:23:16 PM

Things Take Time

05/12/2017 19:02:16 PM

Beer, Bars And Bands

05/05/2017 07:30:25 AM

Having A Main Dude And Band Dynamics

05/04/2017 07:21:14 AM

04/29/2017 08:01:44 AM

One thing that I’ve seen a lot of bands struggle with is the phenomenon of there being a ‘main dude’. You might try to disavow this, saying that in your band everyone participates equally in writing songs, invests equally financially and ...

Finding The People Who Make You Money

04/29/2017 07:55:05 AM

One thing that I don’t think a lot of people in music seem to understand is targeting where the money is. People seem content to jut hit the same generic local punk markets utterly ignoring that there are millions of dollars sitting out there ...

Unsigned Band Syndrome

04/24/2017 16:55:16 PM

Advertising Your Indie Band On Facebook

04/17/2017 16:30:33 PM

Brand Sponsorships And Your Indie Band

04/15/2017 21:33:43 PM

Sponsorships from non music related brands are like licensing. One of those things that you know can be a reliable source of income but which most people view as basically impossible to get. This is, unfortunately, fairly accurate. The music ...

How To Grow Your Fanbase One Person At A Time

03/27/2017 16:44:40 PM
