Music Business Facts- with Rodney Holder

Matt Urmy is a former touring musician, now turned tech entrepreneur. When Matt was a touring artist he often had trouble organizing his contacts, managing finances and keeping track of gigs while on the road. Sound familiar to anyone?

Anyhow, Matt actually did something about it and created a cool new web based app and company called “Artist Growth”.

Artist Growth is a great web based app that helps musicians and managers streamline the touring process. It’s designed to help you sort your finances, merchandise, royalties and much more, all in one place that’s always available online. And it’s also a great discovery tool where record company A&R reps can also potentially find your stuff as well!

My guest today is a cool guy named Karl Sanders, who is the founding member of the American Ancient Egyptian themed, technical death metal band Nile. I’ve met Karl a number of times now whilst he’s been here in Australia and he is making a full time living as a death metal guitarist. He’s been doing that for many many years, so as usual I thought I’d pick his brain about the music business facts and see what he had to share.
