Cool Guide for Cool Musicians

If you could sum up Six-Figure Musician: How to Sell More Music, Get More People to Your Shows, and Make More Money in the Music Business in three words, what would they be?

Ideas worth spreading

What did you like best about this story?

The book answers a lot of tricky questions that I toughed are nowhere to be found. It contains a lot of useful ideas. It is clear, understandable and practical.

What about Chris Caldwell’s performance did you like?

It was ok

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I wanted to do it step by step, because I needed time to digest so many ideas that I found in the book.

Any additional comments?

I'm very happy that I've found this book, and listened to it. It helped me understand how really music business works and where it is going. The book has changed the perspective on those issues, that I have struggled to understand before. After listening to it I gained much more confidence in what I'm doing. Now I have more ideas for building cool future music career.

Nothing new

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book has a lot of the standard "You can do it! Get there and get it!" without giving any real practical advice. It's also very dated.

It was good

This book was good but not great for beginners. I felt like it lacked some of the practical skills to start from the beginning. it is probably best suited to a band or artist who already has an album worth of songs and are playing at least at their local pub on the weekend. This book will give you the skills to expand your gig opportunities, make some decent cash and to distribute your cds and merch. However if you are a beginner trying to get your first album written, land your first gig or start your promoter contact network then this book is a bit of a leap.
