Anyway, if you're trying to make a go of a career in music and you haven't read Lefsetz's post titled, Making it in music, please do so now -- I'll wait.
Here's what I like about Lefsetz's post...
He usually writes with a realist's view on the music industry, some might even say he's a bit cynical. This post in particular, while at first read may seem cynical, is actually just a straight-forward approach of what it means to make it in the music industry today.
I do think marketing can help anyone better promote their musical craft, but as Lefsetz points out, it's about the music.
If you're serious about being a professional musician learn your craft, always be a student of your craft and write, write, write great music.
