Producer, audio engineer, and podcast host Bobby Owsinski has released a new book for musicians trying to get the most out of the industry. The Music Business Advice Book is a compilation of 150 quotes from 130 guests from his Inner Circle podcast over the past four years. While not bass-specific, the 189-page book covers topics that all bassists can use.
“The music business can prove to be a difficult career road when you’re first starting out, but it can be traveled a lot easier with some helpful guidance from a pro who’s willing to share a few hard-earned hints,” Owsinski shares. “These 150 tips cover everything from following your passion, learning to network, and working well with your musical team, to owning your own content and even figuring out how much to charge for your services. Also included are even some useful music production words of wisdom, as well as the indispensable ’10 Rules Of Networking.'”
Music industry veterans quoted in the book include Bob Brockman, Joe Chiccarelli, Josh Gudwin, Ken Caillat, Mike Elizondo, Pete Thorn, Mark Shulman, Shane Theriot, and many more. The Music Business Advice Book is available now in paperback and Kindle versions.
