You may know him from writing one of the most popular books on the music business, Get More Fans, or from his recording credits on records with the most varied set of bands you’ve ever seen including: The Cure, The Misfits, Animal Collective, Brand New, The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Menzingers, Limp Bizkit, Basement, Leftover Crack, Saves The Day, Senses Fail, Weird Al, Lifetime, Say Anything, NOFX, Man Overboard, Bad Books, Transit, Somos, Conflict and over a thousand others. You may also know his work as the host of the podcast Noise Creators and Off The Record or from writing for outlets like Alternative Press, Tape Op, Hypebot and countless others. He just wrote a book about what he’s learned working on all those records and writing about music’s bleeding edge, taking on the subject he knows the most about; helping musicians fulfill their creative vision. Processing Creativity: The Tools, Practices And Habits Used To Make Music You’re Happy With is the culmination of four years of poring over scientific studies, books and thoughts from top creators as well as his own experience to write a book every musician should read about what goes into making great music versus what bands do when they make a bad album. Covering the pitfalls of creating music, the book thoroughly explores the hidden reasons we actually like music, how to get along with your collaborators and patterns that help creativity flourish. While every musician says that being creative is the most important part of their life, they barely explore what’s holding back them back from making music they are happy with. When trying to navigate the ways our creative endeavors fail there’s no YouTube tutorial, listicle or college course that can help navigate the countless creative pitfalls that can ruin your music. If you’ve had trouble getting your music to be as good as the musicians you look up to, then this book can help you understand the practices they use to make their music so great. He’s crafted a book that exposes life-changing knowledge that can be read in under a day, that identifies the patterns and essential knowledge he helps bring to musicians each day. Writing a detailed read that will leave even the most advanced creators with a new perspective on how to make music they’re more happy with. There are no rules to being creative, but there's research and considerations that can help you make better decisions, get past the breakdowns in your process and enhance the emotional impact your songs have on others. The essential ideas on creating music are detailed in a simple, fun language that’s littered with quotes and insight from the most innovative creators of our time that discusses subjects like: How to make highly emotional music that makes listeners compelled to listen again and again. Effectively dealing with collaborative problems like “too many chefs in the kitchen,” giving helpful criticism or dealing with stubborn collaborators. Finding inspiration to develop into music that’s uniquely your own. How to draft your songs while avoiding the common pitfalls of losing perspective and giving up. Examining the unexpected reasons we enjoy music. Calming your thoughts so they don’t sabotage your music and other helpful tools to help execute your music as best as possible. Whether you're a music fan, producer, songwriter or musician, there's no book with more helpful ideas that can help make everything you create in the future better.

Description : "Ari is at the front of the front. He gets it. I've read a hundred how-to-make-it-in-the-music-biz books, and this one is today's definitive, comprehensive manual." —Jack Conte, 150+ million YouTube views, Pomplamoose, CEO of Patreon Forget everything you think you know about the odds of “making it” in the music industry. Today, odds mean nothing and success is not about lucky breaks. It’s about conquering social media, mastering the art of merchandising and simply working harder and being smarter than everyone else. We are living in the midst of an industry renaissance, one that has left the record companies desperately struggling to maintain their prominence, as a subculture of dedicated, DIY (do-it-yourself) musicians have taken over. These days talent is a given and success has to be earned. In 2008, Ari Herstand boldly turned in his green Starbucks apron to his manager, determined to make a living off his craft as a singer/songwriter. Almost a decade later, he has become a founding member of the new DIY movement and a self-sustaining musician, all without the help of a major label. Now, drawing from years of experience, Herstand has written the definitive guide for other like-minded artists, the ones who want to forge their own path and not follow the traditional markers of success, like record sales, hits on the radio or the amount of your label advance. Incredibly comprehensive and brutally honest throughout, How to Make It in the New Music Business covers every facet of the "new" business, including how to: Build a grass-roots fan base—and understand the modern fan Book a profitable tour, and tips for playing live, such as opening vs. headlining etiquette, and putting on a memorable show Become popular on YouTube, Spotify and SoundCloud Get songs placed in film and television Earn royalties you didn’t know existed and reach your crowdfunding goals Musicians will not only be introduced to all the tools available today but will be shown how to effectively leverage them to actually make money. More important, they will develop the mindset to be aware of new advancements both online and in the real world and always stay in tune with a constantly evolving landscape. There has never been a better time to be an independent musician. Today, fans can communicate with their idols by simply picking up their phones, artists are able to produce studio-worthy content from their basement and albums are funded not by "record men" but by generous, engaged supporters. As result, How to Make It in the New Music Business is a must-have guide for anyone hoping to navigate the increasingly complex yet advantageous landscape that is the modern music industry.

Description : Music business today isn't very different than it has ever been. The only thing that has changed is the technology we have access to. This step by step book will teach you every aspect of the music business so you can put your music skills to work for you. It's about building your musical brand, learning the proper way to use social media, building an audience, publishing and distributing your music, and much more. In this book, you will learn alternative ways to earn an income. These include, working from home, building libraries and working for hire. Modern music business is radically changing due technological advances and this is leaving some record companies behind. This is the era of underground DIY (do-it-yourself) musicians. Being a professional musician goes beyond musical talent. You must have a business mindset when conducting your career. Ethan Anderson has been a musician ever since he could walk. That was many years ago now, back in the days where one who wanted to market their music had to use physical CDs and cassette tapes. Ever since, he started collecting years of knowledge and experience, compiling it into a digestible format for a definitive guide to other musical artists. He knew that most musicians don't have the funding to start major marketing campaigns. This book is for the cliche "starving artists", the blue collar musician, and anyone looking for guidance in modern music business. Modern Music Business covers every detail of the current music professions. In this book you will find the tools to leverage and think critically about making money with music. You will be aware of new technologies and learn how to strategically reinvent and change how you will make money. Now is the best time to be an independent musician. Streaming services provide income for several musicians without fans having to purchase an album. It makes it 100% easier for fans to support you without worrying about being strapped for cash, or having a closet filled with tapes and CDs. Albums can be completely funded by a generous network of fans before the musician even begins on the project. Fans can instantly connect with the artists on their phone and the internet. Music Artists can produce studio quality recordings from their basement, or their phone from anywhere in the world. This book, Modern Music Business, is a vital blueprint for anyone planning to build a music career in a seemingly complex field of business known as the modern music industry. It's short, to the point, and cost-effective.
