About this podcast
The music business is rapidly changing! Technology has transformed the way musicians record, promote and distribute their music. The internet has also changed the way fans discover and listen to the music they love. In light of these changes, being a do-it-yourself musician can be a daunting task to say the least. With the CD Baby DIY Musician Podcast, we hope to tread the murky waters of the indie music world and provide an added tool for your musical journey. Born out of their daily work with artists at CD Baby, Kevin, Chris, and the Bolt work to educate and encourage artists while building community among fellow musicians. The DIY Musician Podcast features interviews with promoters, lawyers, publishers, bookers, and artists of all styles and backgrounds. Kevin and the gang will also share tips, tricks, breaks, and mistakes---all in the name of being indie. Join us!
