“Having been in the industry for over 30 years, I recognize this book as visionary and for a young or even experienced performer, like myself, an excellent look into the future of the music business as well as the technological possibilities head.  I had predicted the crumble of the castle created by the industry majors and their control of the radio airwaves a little over 5 years ago just on common sense principles with the innovation of web access. The author here has put those common sense principles with substantive information on the evolution of web technology and communication. This book,coupled with the equipment and software available to produce in personal studio facilities gives the 21st Century musician and performer an opportunity to not only produce himself but market himself in way unimaginable in the past.  This is an ABSOLUTE…. MUST HAVE…..in the library of anyone who intends to participate in the Music Business. I won’t be enough just to read it, this is a small text book that future information as the industry continues to evolve, will be the basis of and will continue to serve as a reference source towards the fundamental understanding of the techno/business aspects necessary to understand.” – Earl Nesmith, Musart Enterprises

"Perhaps the most compelling music-biz think piece to emerge this year.  The authors challenge traditional assumptions about how to “make it” in the music business, providing much valuable legal and technical information along the way.  A must read for those who are banking on music for their own future." – David Roman, Future Music Magazine

"A solid look at how the music industry is healthy even if the music business is not. One of the best takes today on what a "pool of music" could mean to the artists, record labels and consumers." – The Register (UK)

"I think your book is the best music business book I have ever read!  I have recommended it at our recent meetings." – Franklin Spicer, Los Angeles Songwriter Co-op

    I just finished listening to The Future of Music. I liked the book very much, but I don’t think it spent enough time discussing the current issues facing the on-line music business. In Discovering the Profits in Music Service, Rob
