How to Live, Network, and Succeed in the Music City
Paperback      ISBN: 1617740896
Nashville may be considered the epicenter of country music, but today, this thriving music-industry town is home to a diverse array of musicians and musical styles. Combine that musical community with a "livable" town that's more friendly and affordable than some coastal music cities, and it's no wonder that musicians continue to flock to Nashville to play, write, record, produce, and live otherwise fulfilling lives. Getting acquainted with any new city is a challenge. For musicians, picking up and moving presents a whole host of challenges. Musicians make noise and thrive on working with other musicians, whether playing in rehearsal spaces or gigging. They need spaces where they can create, record, and hang out with other musicians. They need to know where to play, where to buy gear, where to meet other musicians, where to see live music, and where to network and exchange ideas with other musicians. Making the Scene: Nashville will serve as a comprehensive guide for musicians and artists of all types looking to move to and establish themselves in Nashville, Tennessee. Sprinkled with historical references on how Nashville became the home of country music along with interviews from a wide range of music professionals and resources, this book will become a prime resource helping artists and others meet the challenges of moving to Music City USA - Nashville, Tennessee.
