Fifteen Things Every Musician Wanting Any Kind of Deal MUST Understand is a book for musicians early in their interactions with the larger music industry? Fifteen Things explains major industry terminology -- advances, copyrights, royalties, and much more -- in simple terms that any musician can read and get out there and use to enhance their success!
Fifteen Things is derived from a larger work by the same author -- The Freedom Guide for Music Creators, available on Amazon.
