What People Are Saying About The New Music Industry:

Once we’re clear of “mountain view” thinking, we’re ready to act, and one thing that is the most helpful is honest communication. David Andrew Wiebe provides just that, both through his website and this book. There is no pretension or abstraction at work here, and the reader is better off for it. He draws on his 12 years of self-promotion experience and is refreshingly open about his limitations and follies, a style myself think is among the best ways to teach. From the basics of blogging, bio writing, social media, and podcasting to music promotion, David covers a wide range of steps to help you start scaling your individual mountain.

If there’s something that most artists are great at, it’s being spontaneous. But If there’s something we definitely need to do better, and to do more frequently, it’s the opposite–make a plan. David’s book shows us all, in great detail and from our point of view, how to build, refine, and live that plan. Success in music is difficult, but for those who read this book it goes from a roll of the dice to counting cards. In an industry where the house rules are often against the individual, The New Music Industry is your guide to evening the odds.

Adam Meachem

Guitarist & Independent Artist,

David has his finger on the pulse of what it means to be a musician in this day and age. He is optimistic without being impractical. He says everything that everybody should be saying on the subject but isn’t. You would be doing yourself a disservice not reading his words. This is a manifesto for the modern musician. Required reading.

David Andrew Wiebe’s latest book, The New Music Industry, is a refreshing Big Picture guide to what an artist needs to consider to pursue a lasting career in the music business. Like any good teacher or mentor, David draws valuable wisdom from his own life as a musician and music industry professional, distilling that experience into thoughtful, practical advice that anyone can follow. More than a simple How-To manual, David digs deeper to really help the artist understand their goals and to get into the right mindset to achieve them.

If you’re a musician in the year 2016 moving forward and you want to make a serious go of your career, then you will initially feel overwhelmed at what steps to take first. Forget what Captain Kirk said, the internet and world wide web is the final frontier.

Here is my recommendation for your first couple of steps: Hone your craft, work hard on your material and work on how best to get these talents across by practicing in your garage until your tails fall  off. Then you need to buy a copy of David Andrew Wiebe’s excellent book.

I really don’t think he’s left out one step on how to use the internet and social networks to reach the maximum amount of fans. And not just passive fans, but fans who will respond and circulate your band’s name and image.

You’ll learn how to get video clips not only distributed but watched by the kind of people that will wind up banging the drum on THEIR Facebook pages and work as your personal PR people.

David Andrew Wiebe is the king of internet music marketing and, most importantly, social networking platforms. To me if he hasn’t written about it in this excellent book, it’s close to useless or not in existence.

Great, easy to read and comprehend book.
