6 Keys to Musical Prosperity - Teleseminar with Bobby Owsinski

I recently caught Bobby Owsinski's teleseminar, 6 Keys to Musical Prosperity, and highly recommend it to any independent musician interested in learning more about establishing a music career in the new music business era. 
After some introductory comments, Bobby busted a few myths about the music industry before sharing six keys he considers essential to having a successful music career . . .
  • Think like an entrepreneur
  • Learn how to promote yourself
  • Have the right attitude
  • Develop your personal brand
  • Differentiate yourself
  • Step up your musical game
The teleseminar was interlaced with personal stories and experiences, and included special guest appearances by Paul Ill and mix engineer extraordinaire Dave Pensado.  If you missed it, you can catch Bobby's PreSonuSphere 2013 "6 Keys to Musical Prosperity" presentation below.

Mr Owsinski is a renowned producer, engineer, author, and coach.  His books are used in music business college courses, and belong on every musician's bookshelf.  Visit or Musical Prosperity Breakthrough to learn more.

Reachin' Through the Thorns - Performance Track Released

Last September (2013), I received an email asking about a soundtrack for "Reachin' Through the Thorns," a song I had written in the early '80s and recorded with The Gibsons.  Since no soundtracks were made at the time of the original recording, I decided to create a soundtrack loosely based on the recording made at Rayner Street Studio in Memphis, TN.

Thank you, Carolyn.  I am glad you "love the song," and I appreciate you asking about the soundtrack. Creating the track was a lot of fun, and brought back memories of my years traveling with The Gibsons.

You can check out both the demo and the performance track below . . .
