Struggling to take your music career to the next level? My 1-on-1 services, online courses, and templates are designed to help you grow your fanbase, build your brand, and make more money as an independent musician.

 

BEST FOR: Musicians and artist managers who want to make more money from Spotify and grow their fanbase online

CRUSH IT ON SPOTIFY

Earn more money from streaming revenue and find new fans on Spotify.

It’s no surprise that more and more people are streaming music these days. Spotify alone has over 200 million monthly active users. But there are also millions of songs on the platform that have never been played. If your strategy is “put-it-up-there-and-hope-people-find-it,” well, you need a new plan. 

This course will show you how to make the most of the platform, get more plays and start earning more money from your music on Spotify! 

BEST FOR: Musicians who book their own shows and want to be more professional

PERFORMANCE AGREEMENT TEMPLATE

An easy-to-customize contract template you can use to book your shows like a boss. Get it in writing! 

Every musician has their fair share of touring stories where they drove 6+ hours only to be told, "Sorry, you're not getting paid." If you are booking your own shows and not putting contracts together, you open yourself up to a ton of potential issues. You’re also missing out on an opportunity to represent yourself professionally with talent buyers and venues.

Years ago I met with an entertainment lawyer to set up an easy, readable, customizable 3-page contract that I could use every time I booked my own band. Just replace the highlighted text with your own show and contact info. Simple!

BEST FOR: Musicians who want a killer website, ecommerce store and EPK that's easy to maintain

WEBSITE & EPK DESIGN

Before anyone listens to your music, they will come across your visuals first and make a split-second judgement about whether or not to listen to your music and engage with your brand. Your tunes could be amazing, but if your branding and visual identity is sub-par, you shoot yourself in the foot immediately.
