Want To Become a 6-figure musician? Here’s how…

Have you ever wanted to monetize your skills as a musician but struggle with how to actually get paid to do what you love?

If so, you aren’t alone.

For years I did everything from playing bar gigs, to touring, to busking on the streets, trying to make it as a  “full-time” musician.

The challenge with going full time as a musician is most creatives only focus on one side of the coin (making the music), and completely ignore the other side (the business)

But the problem with that is…

Luckily, I’ve discovered the solution to this problem....

To become a 6 figure musician, without burning out on underpaid gigs and trading MORE time for money, you need to:

  • Have commercially great music 
  • Have a growth mindset
  • Have a simple home studio
  • Have systems in place so people can pay you

I know, it sounds too good to be true, but once I realized I didn’t even have to leave my house to make...

Why You’re Not Making Money With Your Music

If trying to turn music into your front hustle makes you feel like this guy…

Example of how working harder doesn’t = more value

 Don’t worry, I’ve been in your exact shoes, and it’s not your fault.

There’s a mainstream “story” that’s been fed to us for years that paints the picture of the starving artist who works a crap job and suffers for their art until some Record Label big wig comes to the rescue, funds their entire career, and makes them a star.

We’ve been indoctrinated to believe that some gatekeeper is going to let us into the cool kids club, give us some sort of “deal”, and that’s when we'll finally “make it”.

Even when you go to music school, while you might get an amazing education teaching you theoretical principles, they fail to teach you how to actually make money as a musician.

So, it’s no wonder there are so many artists starving for their art.

How I built a 6-figure business as a producer

How I built a 6-figure business as a producer, one step at a time

Whenever I meet somebody new, the conversation usually goes a little something like this….

Them: So what do you do?

Me:  I’m a musician.

Them: Oh that’s nice!  What do you do for work?

MeI’m a pro musician

Them:  I mean what’s your actual job that pays the bills?

MeI’m a pro musician that makes a living producing from my home studio for various projects for film/tv/commercials, and for clients all over the world.

Them:  {Looks at me confused}

Whether it’s my fiance’s parents, somebody I’m meeting at a public place, or new acquaintances , nobody really comprehends that there’s an entire industry of professional musicians that not only make a great living, but that we’re doing it from our home studios…

…and that we’re quite possibly the very people behind some of the TV shows, commercials, and...

Why now is the best time to start a production company

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago; the second best time is today."
-Chinese Proverb

This might sound crazy but…

I truly believe that in this day and age, having a home studio is just as important as having strings on your guitar.

And I think the pandemic showed us that working from home is no longer a luxury, it’s a necessity.

Which is why right now is the best time ever to build your home studio and start your production company. 

3 Reasons Why Now is the Best Time to Start a Production Company 

1) A Financially Smart Move for Music Producers

Starting your production company is now more cost effective than ever before. 

If you have a laptop, you could build a functioning home studio for under $1000 and be production-ready in a weekend! 

I love the sayinguse what you got until what you got pays for what you want

Case in point: My first home studio consisted of a used interface ($300), a used mic ($200),  and a wonky used...
