The second (2020) edition of The Independent Music Sector by Neil March has been published. It is available to buy from Amazon here. The new edition has more than twice the content of the 2019 version for the same low price of £10.00.
It covers all areas of interest to anyone seeking to operate within the independent music sector including releasing, distributing and marketing music; publishing, royalties collection, contracts and deals; social media; digital streaming, downloads and playlists; radio play and other media; membership bodies; live events promotion; management; booking agents; applying for external funding and more.
The popularity of the first edition prompted the early completion and publication of the second. It is a book that should be in all university and other music education libraries and is an invaluable guide to the independent music practitioner regardless of his or her area of priority.
