Loren Weisman’s book The Artist’s Guide to Success in the Music Business was a really fun read for me. In addition to being informative to aspiring writers, artists, and producers, the personal anecdotes very much took me back to those times when I was that struggling kid with dreams of getting to actually make a living from what I loved best—writing music! Always interesting for me to get another’s perspective on just how challenging and rewarding this business can be!
Loren is completely on point, capturing the landscape of the music industry of today as well as alluding to the future direction of where music could or should go. Everyone believes they are going to do something so different that they miss the point that this industry is built on a series of steps that depend on the successful execution of the previous step. Loren’s writing gives that step-by-step instruction. It doesn’t mean that the artist shouldn’t or wouldn’t benefit from hiring an experienced consultant, but this book will keep them out of trouble and give them a great direction to start with.
Once again Loren has brought together invaluable information for an upcoming or even an experienced musician . . . This book is a must! . . . You will learn all that is needed to help build your musical career or take it to the next level!
Of all the valuable points to be made about “The Artist’s Guide,” let me especially praise the lists of questions and considerations that appear in almost every section. These can be of immense help for anyone faced with decisions on recording better songs, finding a manager or publisher, running a band, working with a songwriting partner, and creating marketing materials. There is a nice feel to the book — in urging you to ask these questions of yourself, Weisman seems to be coming from a good place. As he writes, “I do not claim to have all the answers, but I do know you must take a hard, cold look at yourself, your music, your band, and what you are doing, while assessing those things you might need to change and those things that should remain the same.” This book will help you accomplish that.
