How to Define Success as a Musician
How to Define Success as a Musician
So many musicians believe that they need to achieve “Stardom” to qualify as a success as a musician. A lot of this mentality is fueled by the celebrity culture both in the media and in the industry. Yes, you want fans and you want to have people come to your show and love your music. But, the celebrity “class” in the industry makes up a very small percentage of those who are making music their career.

Review of the Warm Audio WA-273 Preamp
Review of the Warm Audio WA-273 Preamp
When you think about the sound of the early 1970’s music you cannot escape the sound of Rupert Neve’s 1073 preamp and EQ! Starting at London’s Wessex Studio in 1970 Rupert Neve installed the first console with the new 1073 preamp and EQ, from that point on the sound of the 1073 circuit became the center of the legendary Neve 80-series consoles. These have been one of the most in demand recording consoles in the world and even to this day are considered a standard because of it’s unique character and tone it gives to anything that is put through it.

LIVE MUSIC SURVEY!
We have a new reality in the music industry today. The new music consumer no longer looks at music as a commodity to purchase, but more as something they have unlimited access to. This has affected the whole industry but nowhere is it more evident then with the Independent Artist! During the 90’s the independent artist had the opportunity to take over the distribution of their music and have all the revenue come directly to them. CD Sales were still brisk, download sales were starting and was a windfall revenue stream for the indie artist. Today those streams are drying up and now the Indie Artist must depend on touring and performing live as their main income stream.
