    "Great book"
    What made the experience of listening to Six-Figure Musician: How to Sell More Music, Get More People to Your Shows, and Make More Money in the Music Business the most enjoyable?

    The music industry has changed from the days of the record labels being in charge of everything. Your success is not dependent on them alone anymore. David does a great job of spelling out the opportunities available to musicians of all stripes and describes the tools and techniques to help you engage with your audience. The audible.com version has a great appendix packed with information and an interview with the author.


    What did you learn from Six-Figure Musician: How to Sell More Music, Get More People to Your Shows, and Make More Money in the Music Business that you would use in your daily life?

    That it is not about you, but about making your audience feel good, that is the business we are in. The business is also not only about selling music, it is about engaging with your audience and making them feel good.

    "Cool Guide for Cool Musicians"
    If you could sum up Six-Figure Musician: How to Sell More Music, Get More People to Your Shows, and Make More Money in the Music Business in three words, what would they be?

    Ideas worth spreading


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book answers a lot of tricky questions that I toughed are nowhere to be found. It contains a lot of useful ideas. It is clear, understandable and practical.


    What about Chris Caldwell’s performance did you like?

    It was ok


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I wanted to do it step by step, because I needed time to digest so many ideas that I found in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm very happy that I've found this book, and listened to it. It helped me understand how really music business works and where it is going. The book has changed the perspective on those issues, that I have struggled to understand before. After listening to it I gained much more confidence in what I'm doing. Now I have more ideas for building cool future music career.

    "Nothing new"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book has a lot of the standard "You can do it! Get there and get it!" without giving any real practical advice. It's also very dated.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read for any musician who wants to make music their career. I've read tons of books and articles and this one really hit home. It gives real, practical advice you can take action on this second. The author and reader understand my struggles as a musician and offer real help without judgment. I truly appreciate this book as a contribution to the music industry and to my personal career in an all girl rock band. This is a game changer!

    "Many Great tips and very up to date tactics"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved this book. As a musician always looking for tips and ideas to grow your audience this helps. there is not a lot of story per say but it has a lot of tips for the indie artist of today. Many times I read books that have dated info and this has stuff for the online age of music tips. definitely worth the time of reading.
