Resources – Music Makers

It’s hard navigating being a DIY indie musician.

You want to be writing and playing music but you have to wear a multitude of different hats as well; recording engineer, producer, booking agent, PR specialist, radio plugger, the list goes on.

We have out together a series of resource guides to help you to progress your career and make your life a little bit easier.

Social media bios are the first place fans visit when they want to know more about you – first impressions count!

If visitors land on your page and see you are professional, well structured and worth investing their time on, they are far more likely to check out your music.

The blog brings in musicians from multiple genres, ages and walks of life. We work with many musicians weekly, helping their careers progress and supporting their new releases.

Working with so many talented musicians is ace. Still, we see common mistakes repeatedly happening, so we thought it would be helpful to put together the most common errors that are easy to avoid – if you are aware of them.

In the ’80s, ’90s and ’00s, the traditional music video was a must for any musician releasing music.

It is super important to make money from your music so you can survive and continue to make more music!

Finding a system that allows you to create your own budget to reinvest back into your music will fuel your growth as an artist or band – and even better it is sustainable growth.

I’d like to point out from the get-go, I am not affiliated with The Unsigned Guide in any way. It’s just a helpful resource I have used as a musician, and I believe it could benefit you too!

Back in 2009, The Unsigned Guide was a staple of any indie artist’s reading material. 

It’s been over two long years since Covid 19 impacted our lives and stopped live music in its tracks. 

As the sector comes back to life, we have put together a blog of five things to do when you start playing live again.
