Great article. There are countless of other bands and artists jostling for the attention of the buying public, so it becomes increasingly important for you to figure out how to set yourself apart as a band. In addition, learning about the business side of music will not only make you a more rounded musician, it will also help to protect you from some of the pitfalls of the business. It’s a lot for a band just starting out to take in, but if you take a startup approach, things will start falling into place before you know it. Additionally, I would recommend: https://www.tunedly.com/blogpost?blog=ThinkingofBuildingaMusicCompany?ReadThisFirst

I think that bands and artists who become successful are those who realize that they should put major focus on the business of music. I realize that it’s not as ‘cut-and-dried’ as that but developing a startup mindset is key to building a strong brand that can survive in a tough industry like the music business.
