Martin Atkins’ Top 5 Tips for Independent Artists from Andrew Dubber

And some priceless advice from Martin:

1) You need fans before you need the guy that is the laywer for The Eagles

2) Build momentum, before you start thinking about business structures

3) Keep your day job while you play and build a fan base. Keep going untill you get fired

4) If you can sustain you can succeed. You will need to focus and make choices. When you bet on everything it will blow up in your face

5)The moment you have the leverage to get the deal you think you wanted, you don’t need the deal any more

6) There simply is NO ONE WAY to ‘monetize’ making music. There are a million different ways. Find the way that suits you

7) I feel like it’s 1977 all over again: it’s all about creativity once more. Get creative, be original
