How to spend every single dollar wisely
What not to spend money on
Independent artists self-fund their music projects. They spend their own money to make and promote their craft.
And because there is very little money to be made in recorded music due to digital streaming, music is pursued as a passion project.
Learn the ins and outs of breaking a record with $1,000. Maximise every single dollar and get your music heard with a return.
