You might have noticed it’s December and everyone is full of cheer. But the winter holidays aren’t just about decorations and egg nog. When you’re a musician, there are also some pretty annoying sides to this time of year. Here’s our rundown of your worst holiday moments as a musician.

The reasons for such thinking could be very different: we might hit a road block or begin to question whether it was worth to come to that point at all.

The manager handles the business, first and foremost. The best managers handle the business with creative finesse. To navigate the constantly evolving musical landscape, managers need truly creative minds. You don’t want a manager who is operating the same way this year as she was last year. Every day is new. Every day is different.
