Over the past four years of my career in the music ‘biz’, I have found Ari Herstand’s blog to be an absolute haven of brilliant advice for independent artists. Ari has been there, done that when it comes to every aspect of the independent musician’s life and he happily shares that information and advice via his blog posts. He has had some great successes along the way and he has also learned a lot the hard way. Thankfully he is kind enough to share those good and bad experiences with the rest of us!
One of the toughest things about being in this industry is the competitiveness, everyone scrambling for the same spots, the same recognition etc and Ari is an example of someone who believes it is better for the industry going forward to look out for one another, to advise and to support, something that is rare from what I have seen so far! He also makes it clear that it is a very exciting time in the music industry and you can’t help but feel reassured and inspired after reading his posts. He also delivers some straight up do’s and don’ts when it comes to managing various aspects of your career and I have found it to be supportive, informative and encouraging.
I have been meaning to post about Ari’s Take for some time now so get yourself a cuppa or a beer/vino and take some time out to listen to his music, check out the blog and prepare to become addicted. Sign up for updates, become a patron and get a shout out in return!
