No. 0006 of the PM Press Pamphlet Series
Succinct and to the point, David Rovics demystifies the very different skills necessary to cultivate the arts of songwriting, guitar-playing and tour booking. In an era when the truly independent record label is virtually a thing of the past, Rovics explains how it’s possible to make a living as a recording artist without a label. At a time when the corporate record industry is suing music fans for sharing music, Rovics explains why the internet is good for independent artists, and how to utilize its potential. For those hoping to get a major record deal and become rich and famous, look elsewhere. But if you’re looking to make a living as an independent artist, this pamphlet is a must-read.

Reviews:

“David Rovics is the musical version of Democracy Now!
--Amy Goodman, host, Democracy Now!

“David is a fine songwriter and a good activist.”
--Utah Phillips

About the Author:

David Rovics has been called the musical voice of the progressive movement in the US. Since the mid-90's, Rovics has spent most of his time on the road, playing hundreds of shows every year throughout North America, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Japan. He has shared the stage regularly with leading intellectuals, activists, politicians, musicians and celebrities. In recent years he's added children's music and essay-writing to his repertoire. More importantly, he's really good. He will make you laugh, he will make you cry, and he will make the revolution irresistible.
