All About Music Business – What’s It All About?

Hi there, my name is Corey Stewart and I’m a singer, songwriter, musician and blogger from Australia and for me, the music business is this wonderful industry that has given me so much in my 30 plus years that I’ve been involved.

Quite simply, music, the business of music and networking with the industries that are involved and surround it is a way of life for me, as a professional musician

All About Music Business was created to help all musicians at any level, expand on what music business knowledge they already have or to perhaps help budding yet ambitious musicians start off their journey towards self sufficiency in the right direction.

This is my humble attempt to document all of the aspects of the music business and the music industry in general that I have either directly experienced myself or, what I’ve discovered on the internet along the way through hand picked articles and other sources of information.

On a personal level, I want this blog to constantly remind me of why I chose to become a professional musician in the first place.

It is a well known fact that great music is the backbone of the music industry however, in todays music industry a musician has to be much more than just an artist waiting to be discovered… RIGHT?

To be really taken seriously in today’s music industry, a musician has to be very business savvy. That is how important the music business is in the whole scheme of things.

I feel it’s really important that performing songwriters and musicians have the best information at their fingertips as this will enable them to be the best musicians that they can be.

Over the coming months you’ll see this site grow and evolve and over time it is my goal to have All About Music Business become one of the most trusted sources of music business and industry information on the web.

This site can only develop in the long term with direct input from its readers, so if in the future, there are any questions that you may have about the music business or the music industry in general, just let me know and I will do my very best to answer them.

I wish you all well on your respective musical journeys, wherever it takes you but let’s take this first step together… NOW!
