Hot Tips to Fuel Your Music Career

  • In a band, no one person is good at everything: It’s best to give jobs to the individuals strongest in their fields. One member may deal with finances, another with tour routing. Even though individual jobs should be assigned, the musician-turned-businessman needs to be aware of all relevant information.
  • First impressions stick. Whenever you present yourself or your product to someone, you should make an excellent first impression. You will never get another chance to do that.  You want the best, so give out your best.
  • Be flexible. Studios hate empty rooms. If you can record at odd hours, or at a moment’s notice – whenever a studio is empty- you can get great deals. Also, if you pay in cash, you can often get a deal.
