One word- it’s awesome. This book is going to be a moment in history. Best lines from this book “The cost of losing is always wondering what could have been.” “Make your audience the star.” David has been in the music industry since 1995 and this book is the distilled version, no fluff version of the experience that came by from all these years. This book helped me personally to become a better blogger, even though its for musicians. I feel that the advice is universal, perfectly fit for anyone who wants an entrepreneurial life. The first thing that I learnt from this book is that you need to make a commitment and you need to push yourselves a little harder. You need to fail. Only when you get out of your comfort zone and push yourselves you will learn how far you can take yourselves. You will not know how much is in you until you fail. I am encouraged to fail to keep trying. As a blogger I failed making any money for over two years but I kept on trying. As a musician you need to fail before you get that gig, which changes all. Be a little better than your competitor. If everyone is only selling lemonade then you gotta sell lemonade in crystal glasses. There’s competition but there’s also a brain in your skull that’s filled with a billion neurons of creativity. David’s book tells you the seven key qualities that he found in musicians who made it. DO you have it in you? Read the book to find out? David warns you against the idle dream of being discovered-that a lucky break would finally result in you being the owner of a smash hit or of being discovered by a director. It happened in cartoons! Instead he gives you a way to hack being discovered. Show yourselves more and more to others in different ways. Ask yourselves whether what you are doing will make you money. For the musician of the 21st century there is only one way to succeed and that way is to go against what has always been done and said.The forms of data and music consumption are changing and you need to adapt to times. The key is not in being a polar bear but a southern cuckoo painted in red. I ask you if there is a magic bullet to succeed in music, if there is it is with this man because he has been doing it everyday since the past 2 decades. The book is filled with examples of people and what they did to succeed. He has seen it all. It doesn’t end with that. You will learn 1, How to make an impact and why to do it? 2. How to build an audience and why audience is the star 3. What is just the most important thing in music- its not what you think it is Making a big name in a hugely competitive industry may be a tough nut to crack but I find that anybody reading “The six figure Musician” will get the ability to actually scan the brains of a person who has done it all. Lastly “ don’t give up”

The author provides a great guideline, similar to a business plan, on how to get back on track with your music career. I enjoyed how the author used analogies to prove his point and his writing style is very informative but yet it seemed as if he was speaking to me personally. The book starts off by telling you about your mindset in the music business and some qualities all musicians should have when approaching the business. He tells you how to stay motivated and focused on your goals, which really can help everyone in life in general. Chapter 2 movies into how you should specifically approach your music career. This was a very interesting chapter, and one which I never thought about in the way he talked about. It immediately changed my viewpoint and the perception I had. The author specifically went into 2 different paths: impact or ease. He goes into these 2 very deeply and uses examples and analogies that make it clear which path you want to go down. Towards the end of the chapter he goes into what it really takes to be successful, not only in the music business, but life in general. Chapter 3 and 4 start to move into how you actually obtain that record deal, make your product, market it, etc. He also notes the alternate routes to getting a record deal and making sure that a record deal is right for you. I wont go into details to avoid spoiling anything. I will note that chapter 4 went into great ways to get your career moving. Chapter 5 and 6 talk about connecting with your fan base through social media (the right and wrong ways to do so) and creating music for you and your fans. Chapter 7 talks about the internet specifically, how to get noticed, and how to make money. I also really enjoyed his opinion of music piracy and I wont spoil anything but his insight was enlightening. Chapter 8 and 9 do a great job of reiterating the mindset that you should have when approaching the business itself and finding your balance. There are 2 Appendixes that talk about reaching your fan base and talks more about making money. This will help anyone who wants to sell merch, records, or anything really. Overall, 5/5 this book provides amazing insight into the music industry, not only the music aspect, but the financial and personal side of it. I already ordered another copy for my friend :)

Using empathy to build an audience that is hooked on to the end of your fishing line. Engaging fans and the media by storm, let them know who’s the boss, while still have the having fun. I really like the part about using social media to engage your audience and letting everyone know what’s going on. There is a whole chapter on understanding why people buy music? This chapter lays out a lot of the stuff most people never even think about. This chapter for me is the meat of this book and show the author has done his homework in this field. Breaking into the music industry is one of the tougher things to do, but with a little luck and this book you can succeed at it.

    Straight to the head, no bullshit talk about being the best artist you can be and how to succeed doing what you love (if that thing is music, of course). I've been following a whole plethora of blogs about music marketing for quite some time, and I still got tons of value out of this book, so I can't imagine how it might be for someone just starting out at this. But don't get into the curse of information hoarding. Try to do it in real life as well, one guerrilla tactic at a time.

Not download-it-as-warez free, but really free. It fits one of my my five star criteria (being the best in a certain niche), so what the hell.

    I've read a lot of music marketing books and courses. This one covers all the important stuff from the others and some stuff that wasn't in the others.

    Main takeaways are be interesting, don’t try to please everyone, and personalize your emails. Lots of common sense and filler in here. Be prepared for lots of references to celebrity sex tapes, the porn section in video rental stores, and having a good looking person sell your merch.

    Hooper does a masterful job putting a detailed guide of how to navigate the ever changing business of music. If you're in a band or a solo artist,technology has enabled you inexpensively to have a presence online potentially reaching millions of fans all over the world. But it's a Catch 22 because you're not alone in trying to promote your music. Because you can no longer count on record sales to monetize your dreams, you need to get your music exposed by touring-playing live shows.

If you're in a band or a solo artist,technology has enabled you inexpensively to have a presence online potentially reaching millions of fans all over the world. But it's a Catch 22 because you're not alone in trying to promote your music. Because you can no longer count on record sales to monetize your dreams, you need to get your music exposed by touring-playing live shows. The author shows you how to get a packed house at your shows,even if you're initially not getting a big audience,when on stage. As far as the internet goes,why spend a lot of money creating your own website, when social networks,will essence do it for free? Plus you will get the benefit of crowd sourcing. My favorite chapter was when Hooper explains "The Drip Method." Basically it is releasing your music piecemeal for lack of a better word. Since people don't buy albums like they used to, you need to release individual songs/tracks when they are done. Fans will still buy or stream your new songs, keeping your group in the spotlight. Another thing the author points out, that I was unaware of is that age is no longer a barrier to making money with your music. There is so much research he did in compiling this book and it is extremely well written.

    When my friend told me they wanted to get the band back together, I decided I needed a primer on the music business these days. This was a very salesmaney book, but I saw that it had good reviews, so I picked it up. There's honestly a lot of good stuff in here, and a lot of great ideas on how to make money being a musician since the music industry collapsed.
