Learn How To Run Your Music Business at Home and on the Road. In the wake of music and file sharing on the internet, enterprising artists can now achieve success on their own terms without contractual arrangements with traditional record labels. Rocking Your Music Business shows musicians how to do this, and provides tools to manage each aspect of their careers. It explains how to use the web for promotion and selling songs and merchandise, and provides tips on taxes, data protection, copyrights, and accounting. Touring and recording are also covered, and the book explains how to have fruitful business relationships with all of the people they will encounter in the biz, such as roadies, studio owners/managers, gig bookers, producers, and other musicians and members of the band. ©2008, 256 pages.
