If you are new to the music industry, I am certain that you have been somewhat exposed, or even experienced, how frustrating it is to acquire next-level information. This page was designed to gain, anyone interested, some valuable information regarding the music industry.


This will be a growing page; I will start off with the most pertinent information and as the page evolves, continue to add tips to help you to elevate your craft.



I want to encourage you: many people will try to discourage you, by saying the following statement: "you need a real job, there is no money in the music industry!" I call BS. While the industry has a tough jaw, you need only look around to see that the music industry is so vast and ever expanding, that the said statement holds little truth; you only need to know where to tap in and you can make a decent living. I'm not saying it will be easy, but it's just as possible as investing thousands of dollars in pursuing any other career in any other industry.
