How to Make It In The New Music Business: Practical Tips On Building A Loyal Following And Making
​A Living As A Musician

Find out how to build a fan base - and understand today's fans, book a profitable show, get songs
placed in film and TV, reach your crowdfunding goals, get press, and a thousand other things. This
