I started my career planning educational workshops with some of North America's top artist managers, then moved on to manage commercial radio and internationally touring artists independently. I'm addicted to learning and love sharing what I learn with you here.

    This is a SOLID step


    This book is useful and should be left in every basement & rehearsal space in Canada. If you are looking to take your musical passion to a monetary level, this is a solid first step after learning how to play.

    Ahoi Jamie,
    big up for what you are doing! I really enjoyed to read your compact written book and learned a lot. It became kind of a small bible for everyday questions in the music biz in our circles. Thanks for that, saves a lot of time.
    All the best from Vienna.
