But when they got focused on helping their clients succeed, they changed popular culture forever.
Discover how the world's most effective music managers built the skills the drove their clients to stardom...
"Breaking out" in the music business doesn't mean finding an established manager. Instead, truly successful musicians partner with trusted friends, family members, or business advisors who can grow into the manager role.
Here's everything I wish I knew about becoming a music manager when I started my own agency.
After working as a recording engineer, producer, and journalist, I thought it'd be an easy stretch to start managing musicians.
Boy, was I wrong.
So, I studied the careers of the most influential and effective music managers in history. I discovered that artists like The Beatles and Elvis Presley didn't vault to stardom on the backs of established industry veterans. Instead, they relied on trusted advisors with the raw skills necessary to negotiate great deals and develop talent.
I wrote this book for artists who want to take better control of their careers, and for prospective managers asked to help the musicians in their lives.

Consider this book the "missing first section" to the industry standard publications on music management and artist development.
About the author
Joe Taylor Jr.
Over the past two decades, I've interviewed hundreds of musicians, produced over a dozen albums, and managed promotional campaigns for everyone from indie artists to Fortune 500 companies.
Along with the notes I scribbed in my journals after every meeting with a successful musician, my books are full of strategies compiled by researching the habits of highly successful artists in a variety of disciplines.
I wrote these books because I'm a ravenous music fan, and I think it's important for our culture that independent artists succeed at getting their work in front of appreciative, supportive audiences.
What readers are saying
"Good and to the point. No frills and fluff. Not a lot of groundbreaking material, but very inspiring. Taylor writes the book as someone that's been in the same position you're currently in would which keeps it engaging and understandable. Definitely worth reading if you plan to be a manager and you're not working your way up at an agency."
"I recommend this book to those who are looking to go into music or production but don't have time or money to go the traditional route of learning. Again, great book!"
"This book provided me with the basics of management. It also provided great resources of how to educate myself beyond this book."
