An essential guide for independent artists. Getting ready for a release is a lot more than just getting your track uploaded to Spotify or other streaming platforms. This book guides you through the process of some of the essential steps you will need to take before releasing music. I take you through evaluation of your previous release - a step that most people I speak to miss - right through to pitching your track to Spotify playlist curators. There's also a handy checklist that you can use to make sure you have everything in place. I take a quick look at the different PRO's - Performing Rights Organisations - that will pay your royalties. The royalty game is big money, it's important that you are covered no matter where in the world you reside. But which PRO is right for you? 'Are You Release Ready' is a book that can be used over again for each release, making sure you don't miss any steps.
