21 Days Until ARISE MUSIC FESTIVAL
With a focus on high-energy, socially-conscious performers, the ARISEMusic Festival will feature a selection of yoga and movement workshops each day, special guest presenters, interactive workshops, art installations, documentary films, Odell craft brews, a food truck village and vendors specializing in organic and natural products.
I wish all musicians would just stop playing for free because it undermines the people willing to “say, yes I would love to play at your club, now let’s talk about the guarantee.”
But since that’s not going to happen, let me tell you personally how to get paid.
Recently, the UK government passed The Digital Economy Act which included many, perhaps draconian, measures to combat online music piracy (including withdrawing broadband access for persistent pirates). But how much money do musicians really get paid in this new digital marketplace?
Study. Being in the music biz is a college education that never ends. The more you know, the better off you are. Read trade magazines, tech manuals, industry how to guides, blogs and websites written by industry professionals, join groups, listen, ask questions.
Finding information about recording on a shoestring budget isn’t easy. Sure, there are plenty of articles online that can guide you through buying sensibly and cheaply, but very few that actually, from start to finish, give you an idea of how to record your songs with the most merge of funds.
Your relationship with your fans has never been more important. They hold the money and are the ones that want to buy directly from you. They love your music and are whom you need to develop an intimate relationship with if you want your band’s career to grow.
