Learn About the Full-Time Independent Artists Using This Formula...
"I pay for my day to day life by having monthly fan subscribers on my website. I basically have this core group of fans who give me money every month...It changed my life to have monthly income. It was enough to live off of and not have to worry every month. It just gave me all of this space to create something really amazing.
The Impossible Girl - Kim Boekbinder, Full-time Independent Artist
"Too many musicians need that safety net of the day job where they just are too afraid to quit because they won’t know how to pay their bills, but [quitting my job] was the best thing that I did because it forced me to figure it out.
Ari Herstand, Full-time Independent Artist
"You can’t just do the music...once you do have all your ducks in order and the more opportunities that come and the bigger that you get you’ll be able to bring on people. You’ll bring on a booking agent, you’ll be able to bring on a manager, publicist, and pretty soon all you’ll have to worry about is music because you have people who are on a team with you who can do all the other stuff.
Joy Ike, Full-time Independent Artist
"I don’t think it’s possible to avoid uncertainty. It’s inevitable. The only way to approach it is to make it workable...goals should push you into areas that may be a little uncomfortable and not familiar.”
Kodomo (Chris Child), Full-time Electronic Artist/Producer/Composer
"I don’t doubt that I’m a lifer with music now, and I don’t doubt that I’m going to continue to do stuff that I really enjoy, and respect, and love...I also really feel like I have a very strong sense of what’s working and what’s not working.
Cindertalk (Jonny Rodgers), Full-Time independent artist

"I've got to say, I connected with a lot of the things you touched on and was inspired to start making some lists to help me get a better grip on my personal goals, goals for the band, and financial growth.
Overall, your standpoint that we as artists need to be constantly learning about the business end of the industry and keep an eagerness towards finding effective marketing strategies is encouraging, especially at this point in my (our) career as independent artists. I spend a lot of time thinking about these things and it's nice to find someone like you who helps it all make sense.
Thanks for sending this over, Kyle!
