The First Blog. What My Goal Is.

There are a million people who blog about the music business. There is yet another million that give lectures and presentations regarding how to "make it" in the music business. It seems that I hear the same things over and over... and I have come to the conclusion that most of the relevant information for bands overlooks everything that it takes to gain traction in your home market. I feel that everything a band can do to become successful will translate when that band decides to take the show on the road. My goal with this blog is to create open dialogue for anyone that cares about local music (regardless of geography) and to talk about topics that are germane to the topic.

The other goal I have for this blog is to aggregate information from other sources that I see as relevant to the local musician and the music business in a "post Napster" paradigm. These topics could include technology, legislation, or simply comments and responses to other published information that I simply feel the need to comment on. Let's see where this goes.


  1. I can say that those of us involved in the industrial scene are really big into helping bands out and I would love to participate in the discussion.

    Where the old music business had strength in control of distribution and consumption, the new model needs to be founded on creating a strong community and direct relationships between bands, fans, live venues and outlets for consumption. Let's create a community where bands and fans feed from each other. I appreciate you stopping by.
