3 Ways to Learn About the Music Business From Someone Else

3 Ways to Learn About the Music Business From Someone Else

November 28, 2014

This post is taken from a chapter of my newest release, Music Business Hacks. Please enjoy! When I was in business school, I often learned more about the subject from business owners (and running one myself) than the instructor. Usually, the people out in the field have a different perspective. With the music industry, you […]

How to Network Like a Music Industry Pro

How to Network Like a Music Industry Pro

September 2, 2014

It’s no secret that often in the world music, it’s more about “who you know” than what you know. The industry generally favors pre-existing relationships, whether you are looking for a venue, a sponsor, a review on your new album, or a slot at SXSW. Like it or not, networking can make or break an […]

Ice Bucket Challenge and Fundraiser

Ice Bucket Challenge and Fundraiser

August 23, 2014

Unless you yourself have been living under a bucket, you have noticed the Ice Bucket Challenge fervor spreading around the world. This is my take on it – not only to help support efforts in finding a cure for ALS, but to raise money/awareness for issues related to clean water, which is currently affecting almost […]

Learn How to Soundcheck the Right Way

Learn How to Soundcheck the Right Way

August 12, 2014

One of my biggest pet peeves as a performer is a band who doesn’t know how to soundcheck properly. It shouldn’t be – it usually reflects inexperience and ignorance rather than disrespect and apathy. The truth is that most bands are taught how to soundcheck, it’s just a skill that gets picked up along the way. Despite this, the soundcheck is often an indicator of the professionalism of the band.

How Often Bands Should Post on Social Media

How Often Bands Should Post on Social Media

August 7, 2014

How often should I post on Facebook? How often should I tweet? How many videos should I upload to YouTube a month? It’s interesting that more people ask about the quantity of their social media posts rather than the quality of that content. In the world of social media, the quality of the idea (not […]

Testimonials

What people have said about us

Bill McNally, Burnside Distribution Co

“I enjoy working with Simon very much. He has unique and interesting ideas in cross marketing his band on multiple levels that are very effective. He secures endorsements that work well to promote his bands. Simon is a very motivated marketing and promotion oriented professional.”

Bill McNally, Burnside Distribution Co
Tammy Hunt, Hunt Talent Management

“Simon Tam is in the know on everything my musician clients need to know to make a positive difference in their careers. His book “How to Get Sponsorships and Endorsements” is now my go to manual when planning my next step to take one of my bands I manage to the next level. So much time is wasted and not to mention money when attempting to navigate the world of acquiring sponsors for musicians and Simon’s book has kept me from more of that in my managing schedule. You won’t be disappointed. I recommend this to all creative people who need help and don’t want to falter unnecessarily.”

Tammy Hunt, Hunt Talent Management
Spencer Trowbridge, Of Counsel at McNamer and Company P.C.

“Simon is a tremendously talented individual, and, given his strong leadership skills and deep knowledge base in the areas of marketing, promotion, and business development, it is not surprising that he has such a well-established track record of success.”

Spencer Trowbridge, Of Counsel at McNamer and Company P.C.
