Happy’s Essential Guide To Being In A Band

Nobody can tell you exactly how to be in a band. Every artist has their own path. You learn from your mistakes and pick things up along the way. And along the way, you create your own story.

For independent artists in particular, there are many hurdles you’ll need to conquer, from baby steps like recording demos and booking your first shows, to making bigger strides – applying for grants, distributing your releases, getting on radio. And these things aren’t easy – there’s no doubt about that. Being a musician is hard.

Here’s our guide to being in a band, our gift to you where we offer up advice on all these things and more. For the series, we picked the brains of everyone from industry professionals to artists about their areas of expertise, and offered up some of our own advice from what we’ve learned being involved in the music industry for many years. We hope you learn a thing or two of use.
