A Successful Independent Artist Reveals ...
"How to Make a Living as a Full-Time Indie Musician"

Dear independent musician,
It's the dream of virtually every aspiring musician. Being able to generate enough steady income from your music to quit your day job -- and live a fullfilling life centered around music and creativity, on your own terms.
I've been writing about indie music success stragegies for nearly two decades. And through the years, when it comes to reaching full-time status, I've discovered there are basically three types of musicians:
1) Those who buy my books and talk about all the goals they want to accomplish ... but do little to make their dreams a reality.
2) Those who get enthused and take sporadic action here and there ... but end up falling short because they aren't consistent with their efforts.
And 3) That small, rare percentage of musicians who not only "get it," but they apply the ideas and breathe life into the principles that naturally lead to full-time success.
Musician John Taglieri is one such artist.
I've been so impressed with John over the years, I've featured him in three of my books. He's not only smart and talented, but he lives the essence of what it means to be a self-empowered independent artist.
A few years ago he set a goal of playing music full-time. Through sheer determination and drive, he worked methodically toward that goal. He quit his last job nearly two years ago and has since sold thousands of his self-released CDs, tours the country when he wants to, and has thousands of fans around the world.
John is a living, breathing example of what a focused artist can accomplish on his own.
That's why I was so thrillled when John agreed to let me interview him. The result is three hours of audio interviews during which I pick John's brain on all aspects of what he did and how he did it to reach his full-time indie status. Hearing him talk and tell his story is inspiring.
These recordings are packed with ideas any musician can adapt and put to use right away to reach their own music goals.
