“NAM is awesome. Dave is awesome.  I’ve learned to be the centre of a community (not a distant superstar , that the ‘story’ is AS important as the content in engaging an audience and that anything is possible. My musical career has gained momentum mostly because of the strategies NAM has helped me put in place to engage an audience, build my network, and plan my future. So, THANK YOU for helping me pay the bills with a career in music. This is the life I want, love and cherish.”

“I love what Dave is doing. It is intelligent. heart driven and serves the demands of an industry in flux. His empowering techniques are the foundation. The New Artist Model is refreshing. Dave correctly nailed the genre that we are running with for the song I Am Light (Celestial pop) which is currently finding a home on Top 40 radio formats in 15 countries and growing.”

“New Artist Model has changed my life forever. This is the best investment you can make for your career. It’s a leap of faith you have to take. The knowledge has given me so much confidence. How much is your dream worth? Priceless. After I applied Dave’s YouTube strategy my videos started to really take off. This last one has over 200,000 views!”

I honestly think the courses are amazing and anyone who wishes to earn a living from music NEEDS to sign up. I’ve worked for an indie label for quite a few years and have seen first hand the problems musicians and songwriters face. I truly believe these courses will significantly help aspiring musicians and give them a greater chance of earning a living from their music.  In short, you guys are doing a great job, so keep it up!

“The Indie Artist Network has been greatly helpful to me. It’s so nice to be a part of a community of artists who are trying to do the same thing as I am. Dave Kusek also actively participates and it’s really so very helpful and I’m grateful!”

Your course has changed my life. I must tell you that it was because of YOU and your gentle and supportive energy that my instincts told be to JOIN this group. This experience has introduced me to some of the most wonderful and giving individuals I’ve met to date.  If I did nothing else with this course I would already call this a huge success. Thank YOU Thank YOU Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart.

After 2 weeks in this awesome group and in Dave Kusek’s program I learned more about the music business as in 5 years of university (hint: I studied music…). And on top of that I got to know a bunch of lovely people, which helped me tremendously.

Thanks so much. I’ve been a professional musician all my life, but can’t believe how much I’ve learned everytime I log in.  I will tell everyone that’s in the business about this program.

Thanks again for the course. We have a busy summer and I feel we are more prepared business wise based off things I learned in your course. This goes along with your case studies you have at the end of each chapter, I learned a ton hearing about how others have navigated through their career.

Each lesson has surprised me with incredibly valuable advice. Dave has accomplished miracles in assembling so much valuable information in one course. Dave is very careful NOT to include anything that isn’t absolutely crucial for you to know. Start it, you will be glad you did!
