Product Description

Hailed as an "indispensable" guide (Forbes), How to Make It in the New Music Business returns in this extensively revised and expanded edition.

When How to Make It in the New Music Business hit shelves in 2016, it instantly became the go-to resource for musicians eager to make a living in a turbulent industry. Widely adopted by music schools everywhere and considered "the best how-to book of its kind" (Music Connection), it inspired thousands to stop waiting around for that "big break." Now trusted as the leading expert for "do it yourself" artists, Ari Herstand returns with this second edition, maintaining that a stable career can be built by taking advantage of the many tools at our fingertips: conquering social media, mastering the art of merchandising, embracing authentic fan connection, and simply learning how to persevere. Comprehensively updated to include the latest online trends and developments, it offers inspiring success stories across media such as Spotify and Instagram. The result is a must-have for anyone hoping to navigate the increasingly complex yet advantageous landscape that is the modern music industry.

Reviews/Praise

“An indispensable and comprehensive manual on how to navigate the modern music business.” —Forbes

“The best ‘how to’ book of its kind. As a working artist himself, Herstand knows of what he speaks.... The book crackles with the actual experience of being a working artist. Highly recommended.” —Music Connection

“There is a great divide between what the young musician thinks being a rock star is and what actually working as a musician entails. Ari fills in the blanks with his lighthearted yet blunt demeanor. He's the informed older brother most of us never got in this crazy, confusing industry.” —Andy Grammer, chart-topping singer/songwriter
