      For example, if your contract requires you to deliver three albums, but nobody wants albums anymore, how do you ever finish the deal? DP: I think being in the music business is all about relationships. Want to be the first? In fact, a lot of successful artists now never hook up with an indie or a major label; they just do it completely on their own.

      These tools may have a place, but they are secondary to the basics. You can use them to generate interest from labels and to book shows and so on. Yes, music sales are decreasing. In the days of sales, an artist was paid the same money for each record sold, regardless of whether a buyer listened to it a thousand times or never took it out of the shrink wrap and used it as a doorstop. Getting reviewed all over the place may be good for getting your name out there, but even if you can point to 50 reviews that all say your album is the pinnacle of music-making and no one should even try to record again because it's so impossible to beat, the percentage of people who run out and buy your record based on those reviews is going to be surprisingly small.

      The vast majority of labels are run by music lovers who want to make sure people hear your songs and who handle some of the non-creative things that may be tough for you to do yourself. Drawing on his unique professional experience as one of the most trusted advisors in the business, Passman offers authoritative information on assembling a winning team of advisors, negotiating deals, music publishing and copyrights, new digital streaming services, and much more. The good news is that, after fifteen years of music revenue falling like buckets of rocks, we had our first earnings increase in The author does a great job keeping the reader intersted with humor and easy to understand examples. It might take some trial and error to find out what works. A very detailed read for anyone looking for more information or who is about to dive into the industry.
