After reading multiple blogs and books about music marketing and how to get a band famous, I noticed something disturbing: a lack of real world results from those techniques. Being an independent musician, I’ve decided to take the opportunity to document experiments in getting more fans, getting money, and improving the lifestyle of a musician in a band. This experiment will document a new band, starting from scratch, from everything on how to get members, how to get gigs, and what the actual financial outcome of these experiments are.
I am Chris “Seth” Jackson, a bass guitarist and composer. I am an average musician, working a day job as a software engineer, in pursuit of fulfilling my life’s dream of being a self-sufficient musician. This blog is to share the ups and downs of this adventure and, hopefully, find great techniques that everyone can use to achieve success in the extremely difficult world of music.
