New York, NY – Thanks to the electronic revolution, the music industry is changing. No longer do musicians and singers need the backing of radio stations and big record companies to start building a fan base or having a successful music career. “Forget about American Idol, don’t rely on record labels; an artist can make a name for himself / herself first! Then they’ll have the chips stacked in their favor to make a great deal.” is the advice of Jaci Rae, No.1 Best-selling author, syndicated DJ, writer and successful indie artist.
American Idol winners and runners-up are held to strict contracts and tightly controlled careers. Jaci says there’s been no better time to be an indie musician – making the music and money they want and deserve. Rae discusses such up-to-date marketing techniques as: Blogging, Podcasting, guerilla marketing, college bookings, record pools -- even how the indie musician can start up their own successful indie label.
This controversial and outspoken guest also discusses:
- How American Idol makes stars – and also indentured musical servants -- of their winners.
- Why children should be kept out of the music business until the age of 18.
- How the Internet, satellite radio and Podcasting are changing the audience for music.
- Why indie artists are the future of the music business.
This guest will explain in detail how to go from starving artist
to thriving musician in a business that eats its young.
