ILW MUSIC INDUSTRY TIPS:
Show booking:good luck booking Friday’s & Saturday’s,club owners use those nights to get ahead,so don’t expect a booking or a fair deal!If u get one,GO ALL OUT!!!
Opening acts:all the credit goes to the headliner as far as industry reports and how many tix were sold!You are simply a contributor to that,so you cant come back and say,I sold 500 tix at my last show! Un unh the headliner did
Artists:is your intention to be a star on somebody’s label who is pimping you?Remember,budgets for new artists are few to none.For example,”Sorry,we are already trying to sell Drake!”Regardless,Join SoundExchange or you a dumb artist!
Producers/Beat-riddim makers:sell your beats for cheap and get your name out there,take music lessons so you can express feelings better!For example,Minor chords create a sad or more bluesy feel!Musicians know those type of things!
Writers:BEST GO FIND A LABEL/MANAGER/ARTIST WHO WANTS TO RECORD YOUR SONG,oh and join ASCAP as a writer/publisher…u just should ok!
This is just some of my pointers!I hope they help someone,it’s my way of giving back after so many years being blessed by the music business! Any questions,holla!Check my blog for more tips,coming soon!
