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.

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 tw...

Meridee Winters Chord Crash Course: Approved for Singers, Songwriters, Kids and Klutzes (Volume 1)
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...

The Singer/Songwriter Rule Book - Full Color Version: 101 Ways To Help You Improve Your Chances Of Success
The Singer/Songwriter Rule Book - Full Color Version:
It's all about the live show. Everything else that you want in today's music business is dependent on you having a great live show - not just good or even very good - GREAT! This book is for the singer/songwriter who is ready to make the big leap from the craft of performing to the art of being an artist/writer/entertainer. But to start with, one of the best ways to make a living is to be a solo singer/songwriter/performer who owns the melody, the lyrics, the voice, the song arrangement and the recording master. The only thing that has changed in the music business is the loss of the major income stream from record sales and the manner in which the audience is receiving and consuming recorded music. But as far as singer/songwriters and live performances are concerned, HOW TO ENTERTAIN AN AUDIENCE HAS NOT CHANGED. The audience still wants to be entertained no matter how well or badly the record business is doing. Caveat 1: The 101 WAYS are not guaranteed to make you a star, only to improve your chances of success; hence, the book’s title. Caveat 2: These steps are designed to move your career from the level of singer/songwriter/performer to that of an artist/writer/entertainer. Caveat 3: None of these instructions by themselves will change your life or your career. However, the ...
