The Musicians Union in the UK have a number of initiatives ongoing that are there to help you achieve a fairer deal for your performance. In this podcast we run through all of these in detail as well as covering some key factors involved in how to value yourself as a performer.
Graeme Nash of cover ‘Daft’ is one of those brave characters that took the decision to ‘go pro’. He’s successfully gone from being a full time sales professional on a great salary to earning all his income from his band. He now supports a family of four and is going from strength to strength. In this episode we get to grips with how he managed to do this and what obstacles he faced along the way.
Brian is a full time marketing executive. In his spare time he runs Baffalo Tale, a 5 piece party that is consistently busy gigging at weddings and corporate events year round. Brian’s take on the bands semi pro status is excellent…. he sees this as an advantage. Being a marketing exec he know how to get gigs. Sit back, listen carefully, take notes and go do what he does. You won’t regret it.
