3 Unique Online Music Production Resources 

Living in the heart of a music mecca like New York, Nashville, Austin, LA, Seattle etc., no doubt has its advantages when you’re trying to get your music career moving. You’re in the thick of it, and there’s no shortage of talent, resources or inspiration to draw from. Up until about 2010, if you wanted a career in music, you basically had no choice but to move to a big city.

In fact, more and more musicians, artists and creatives are leaving the high rent of the big city behind to find a better quality of life in more rural locations. Here are a few unique resources to help kickstart your music career when you’re not living in the heart of a buzzing music scene.

How A Visual Artist Taught Me To Earn A Living Through Licensing

Many musical artists don’t think about how to generate alternative revenue streams to supplement the money they make selling albums and playing gigs. Many artists avoid thinking about the business aspects of the industry in a more broad way than simply “play a gig and get paid”. This is a subject that has interested me for many years, as the financial roller coaster of being a professional musician can be very trying at times.

But then I met Larry Rivers, the man who taught me how to merge art and commerce to generate revenue. My experiences with him have greatly influenced how I approach earning a living as a creative artist.
