“Your ability to make money is linked to your ability to add, create and provide value.”- Michael Neill

Add, create and provide value.

Consider whether the music you’re creating is doing the above. Are you adding to the music collective by writing pertinent, meaningful, thoughtful material?  Are you adding value to the music market or or are you satisfied turning out cookie cutter ideas in the hopes of traditional ideas of stardom?

Do you create a live music experience that draws fans in or pushes them away?

Do you provide value in a marketplace that is sorely devoid of it?

Ponder your ability to add value, create value and provide value in this music world.  Consider your role and your band’s role in adding value to events, festivals and benefit concerts. Create value by making tangible, meaningful connections to your fans. Provide value for your ticket price, your cd and your merchandise by making sure you deliver your shows in meaningful and memorable ways.
