Sample text

This chapter takes a look at the influences for change (in the music industry and also changes for business in general, which may have implications for how you build and manage your career) and considers the opportunities for your career that these changes bring. This chapter does not consider all possible sources of income. ” MP3s, iTunes, and Music Downloads One of the most significant changes in the last few years has been the rise of downloads from the internet. Downloading has taken many forms.

Without somebody being there to buy your product, you will not have income. Without an income, you cannot put food on the table or keep a roof over your head. I will repeat this point: The only guarantee of success is your audience. When you have an audience, your talent does not matter. You may have a voice that makes dogs howl and only be able to play your instrument with one finger (and then not in time—not that the concept of 4/4 time is understood by your drummer). Your shortcomings do not matter, provided that your audience loves you.

The only problem here is that with the advance, the musicians are getting themselves into a different sort of debt. Often when the deal ends, the musician is still in debt to the record label, and his or her career is at an end (which is why the label deal has ended). ■ This strategy will make you more desirable. If you have a solid business that can generate income, then people will want to work with you. This will mean that instead of approaching industry types, such as managers and record companies, saying “we think we’re going to be huge,” you can approach them with proof about how interested your public is in you.
