Want to advance your career as a band/musician?

Check out my new blog series:
"Artist Development: The Series".

The music industry has changed dramatically over the last 15 years. The Internet now allows any artist to share their work with the world. Figuring out how to cut through all of these artists is key to your success. Record labels are no longer signing musicians they have to develop; instead, they are signing artists that already have a large following, fully-developed and produced albums, videos, live shows, and merchandise. Even if music is just a hobby for you, join me here as I talk about some things you can do as a musician to advance your career.
