Shouldn't you be playing? What the hell do you want to read books for, anyway?
Well probably because you are sick and tired of being ripped off, and want to be informed about what you got yourself into, right?

Some food for thought...
You gotta be smart as well as talented. OK, granted if you really have the talent, you can hire all those smart people, right? Wrong. Don't be a victim. Know the business of the music business and be prepared for the opportunities it brings.

I hear way too many horror stories of people being ripped off in this industry, so here's a few book titles that you might want to throw a couple of bucks at... It'll save you much more when you need the info!

  • This Business of Music - this book has been around for ages. Yes, it reads like a lawyer's textbook, but the reality is that lawyers are the people you are going to be dealing with. Be nice to have some of this reading under your belt before you step into an attorney's office, right?

  • The Songwriter's Market - the bible if you are writing songs, looking for producers, publishers, labels, artists, etc. This is the musicians' Yellow Pages when it comes to contacts. Great for your marketing!

  • Recording Industry Sourcebook - a wonderful reference to who's who in music. The perfect desktop companion!
