Killing It In The Streaming Age: 16 Money-Making Tips For Singer/Songwriters
Killing It In The Streaming Age: 16 Money-Making
“What is the single most important money-making tip you would give a new singer/songwriter?” That’s the single question that began this book. It was asked to Featured Artists at The Standing "O" Project. The answers from 16 working musicians who replied are collected here. Some of the answers are single sentences. Others are pages long. Together, they offer a different take on what it means to have a music career in the 21st century. And what’s really surprising—virtually all of the advice is non-digital, real-world and do-able. Want to make a million bucks on Spotify? You’ll need a different book… But this book does offer a peek into the career of the working musician from a perspective that can easily become lost in an age of uploading, downloading, streaming, file sharing and bit torrenting. Killing It In The Streaming Age offers deceptively simple advice to making a decent living as a singer/songwriter today. It offers simple tools on how to be a working pro.

Meridee Winters Chord Crash Course: Approved for Singers, Songwriters, Kids and Klutzes
Meridee Winters Chord Crash Course: Approved for Singers,
New cover, same great book! Play piano without the struggle (and without reading music) using the power of chords! Do you want to accompany yourself as a singer, songwriter or performer? Have you always wanted to play an instrument but don’t know where to start? Are you a music instructor who is looking for a way to liven up lessons or teach popular music?Chord Crash course is an innovative approach to music instruction that will give you the tools you need to accompany yourself, play your favorite songs and even create your own music. A professional educator and musician, Meridee Winters originally created “Chord Crash Course” while working in a recording studio. She found that many vocalists could not play piano or guitar, and thus could not fully complete a song on their own. As a solution, she developed a “chord crash course” that easily taught them the skills they needed, helping hundreds of musicians become better writers and performers along the way. Years later, she began teaching piano to children (this time applying her experience as a former school teacher), and found that her “crash course” was a great tool for students of all ages and levels. This pattern-based approach is also great for alternative learners, including those with ADHD, ASD (Autism Spect...

Troubadours: The Rise of the Singer-Songwriter
A DELUXE DVD/CD 2-disc package featuring the intimate, music-driven feature film Troubadours: The Rise of the Singer-Songwriter and special bonus audio CD. In the wake of the turbulent 1960's, as a new style of song and songwriter came to the fore, Troubadours tells the story of when rock `n' roll grew up. The time was the early `70s, the place was an old beatnik folk club called The Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA, and the players were young musicians emboldened to share their most intimate thoughts backed by little more than a lone acoustic guitar or simple piano. Exploring the early careers of Carole King and James Taylor, as well as the entire California singer/songwriter scene, Troubadours includes interviews with many of the other singer/songwriters from that historical once-in-a-lifetime period - Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Kris Kristofferson, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, and more. Package includes special BONUS audio disc containing songs from many of the key artists from the Troubadour singer/songwriter era.

Nilsson: The Life of a Singer-Songwriter
Nilsson: The Life of a
Paul McCartney and John Lennon described him as the Beatles' "favorite group," he won Grammy awards, wrote and recorded hit songs, and yet no figure in popular music is as much of a paradox, or as underrated, as Harry Nilsson. In this first ever full-length biography, Alyn Shipton traces Nilsson's life from his Brooklyn childhood to his Los Angeles adolescence and his gradual emergence as a uniquely talented singer-songwriter. With interviews from friends, family, and associates, and material drawn from an unfinished autobiography, Shipton probes beneath the enigma to discover the real Harry Nilsson. A major celebrity at a time when huge concerts and festivals were becoming the norm, Nilsson shunned live performance. His venue was the studio, his stage the dubbing booth, his greatest triumphs masterful examples of studio craft. He was a gifted composer of songs for a wide variety of performers, including the Ronettes, the Yardbirds, and the Monkees, yet Nilsson's own biggest hits were almost all written by other songwriters. He won two Grammy awards, in 1969 for "Everybody's Talkin'" (the theme song for Midnight Cowboy), and in 1972 for "Without You," had two top ten singles, numerous album successes, and wrote a number of songs--"Coconut" and "Jump into the Fire," to name just ...

Hotel California: Singer-Songwriters and Cocaine Cowboys in the La Canyons, 1967-1976
Hotel California: Singer-Songwriters and Cocaine Cowboys in the
The story of a remarkable time and place: Los Angeles from the dawn of the singer-songwriter era in the mid-Sixties to the peak of The Eagles' success in the late Seventies. 'Hotel California' is an epic tale of songs and sunshine, drugs and denim, genius and greed, and is the first in-depth account of the LA Canyons scene between 1967 and 1976. Hoskyn's history of this vital period in the development of today's great musical influences spans the rise of Joni Mitchell, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, The Eagles, James Taylor and Jackson Browne, and focuses on the brilliance and determination of David Geffen, the man who linked them all. Covering genius, drug-crazed disintegration, and the myriad relationships between these artists and the songs that issued from them, and drawing on extensive interviews with countless stars, singers, writers, managers, executives and scenesters, 'Hotel California' is a pop-culture classic.

Solo: Women Singer-Songwriters in Their Own
This first-of-its-kind collection vibrates with the high-voltage energy of today's most exciting female singer-songwriters as they speak out, look inside, and reveal their lives.Sarah McLachlan:"When I sang and played I'd get completely lost in what I was doing. During that time, I was no longer this stupid, useless little ten-year-old who didn't have any friends. I was someplace else, where none of that could touch me."Jewel:"Fame exists in other people's minds. I can't experience my own fame at all but I experience it in other people's eyes when I look at them and see that they're scared."Shawn Colvin:"Giving up addiction was the springboard into adult thinking. I realized that everything was a choice. The world was an open book. Nothing was the same after that."Sheryl Crow:"I always pictured myself as a loner off living like a Jack Kerouac character or, worse, someone out of a Charles Bukowski book, one of those down-and-outers who works at a gas station and has no one and no family."Lucinda Williams: "I don't want to offend anyone, but I like to push people's buttons. While I want to appeal to people in all walks of life, I also want to get a response, make them think."
