If you’re a new band and serious about a career in music, here’s a quick list of things you need to have down.

I get a lot of musicians asking me about what they should do next or what they are missing from their band operations. I figured that it might be a good idea if put a basic blueprint together of things you should have down to effective pursue your career in music. This is not the “end all be all”, but it is definitely a good foundation.

I’ve arranged the items in order of a timeline, from recording to touring for an album…
