About the Book
For generations, record companies have dominated the music industry. Artists were unable to get their material to the masses without label backing, meaning that the path to stardom inevitably involved artists having to sign exploitative record contracts. These “record deals” were profoundly one-sided, and usually imposed brutal, predatory terms on artists.
Fortunately, times have changed and artists no longer need labels. It is a new music business, and it is time for a new kind of music business book. Break the Business is the musician’s guide to achieving music industry success through embracing an independent, entrepreneurial, and artist-centered business model.
