The CD Baby DIY Musician Podcast (brain child of Kevin Breuner) is just another way for like minded musicians to reach out and share their experiences, tips, know-how, mishaps and mistakes with a global community that is no longer limited by time and place, age or experience. iTunes voted the CD Baby DIY Musician Podcast the best of 2007 podcasts.
Kevin interviewed me in an episode that aired on August 1, 2008. Here is the show info:
Making a living as a full-time musician is a dream-come-true for most of us. But many artists are so busy looking for their “big break” they forget to consider the more common and obvious sources of income in their own community. Anne Roos is a Celtic harpist who has made a successful career in playing weddings. She entered the field as a novice and learned a lot along the way. She’s recently wrote a book called “The Musician’s Guide to Brides: How to Make Money Playing Weddings” published by Hal Leonard. You’ll be surprised at how much there is to know about this profession. Join Kevin and Anne as they explore the ins and outs of playing and profiting in the wedding business.
The book is available wherever Hal Leonard Books are sold: music and bookstores, and through online retailers (including barnesandnoble.com, sheetmusicplus.com, and amazon.com). I may sound like I’m shamelessly promoting it here, but I really would like to have some constructive feedback about it. I fully intend to write future editions, so your feedback would be of great help to me. Please feel free to respond with your kind constructive comments.
My best to you,
