Are you Afraid of the music business? Its a scary thing

Are you Afraid of the music business? Its a scary thing

Are you Afraid of the music business? Its a scary thing and can send you on a terrifying roller coaster ride if you don’t plan, prepare & execute correctly.
are you afraid of the music business, happy halloween, music industry, loren weisman, artists guide, boo

Are you afraid of the music business? It can be pretty scary

Its chock filled with horror stories of the present, ghost stories of the past and the way different aspects of the music industry can sneak up and attack you, can make it all the more frightful.

Unlike a horror movie though, the more you can learn about the real music business of today, the less scary it will become and the better sense of security as well as knowing what choices to make and what choices to avoid will come to you.

Are you afraid of the music business & hiding behind the chainsaws?


You know that Geico advertisement where the scared kids make the dumbest choice and say, lets go hide behind the chainsaws!

In the same way, many musicians and bands out of both fear and ignorance will make choices that only hurt in the end. As foolish as they may seem and funny from a distance, in the moment of fear…or in the moment of being presented a deal, an offer or a contract, many take the worst path with out thinking it through.

Are you afraid of the music business? Then Learn it!

Educate yourself and learn about the current industry, study the trends, the changes and look at the different paths that are working and the ones that arent. You do not need to become an expert, but you need to build a basic understanding so you can avoiding making the worst decisions at the scariest moments that leave you with the most terrifying results.

My book will not make the monster in the closet or under the bed go away, but it can show you and teach you ways to deal with it and avoid it.

Happy Halloween!
