Publisher's Summary

One of the best ways to learn about what makes an artist or band successful is by going direct to the source and working within the music industry itself. This guide will teach you how to get your foot in the door of a record company and, from there, make the most of the knowledge you’ll gain, finding out how to secure live gigs, discovering the best ways to promote yourself, or, best of all, learning what a record company looks for in a new act, and what you need to do to get a record deal.

Most musicians will tell you that they get their ultimate buzz from playing to live audiences. We’ll cover all aspects of preparing for live performances – what you need to do before, during and after each gig to make the most of each and every appearance - as well as give you essential tips on how best to sell yourself to A&R guys, booking agents, and fans.

And speaking of fans – how do you go about building up a fan base in the first place? There can be nothing worse than turning up to a gig and playing to three OAPs and a bored-looking dog. Make sure that never happens to you by following our tips on how to build up an army of fans before you ever hit the stage.

You’ll also learn how to promote yourself on a limited budget, by following our cost-busting techniques using the Internet, social media, and new music technology. Why spend hundreds or even thousands of pounds in recording studio time, for example, when you can record and mix your own songs at home for a fraction of the cost?

Not only that, you will discover how to avoid being fooled by the many scammers that are out there, hell bent on parting you from your money by offering to put you in touch with record company contacts or by arranging “professional” photo shoots for instance.
