How to grow your band:

Everything you need to know in one place

I spent over a decade playing in gigging bands. Along the way, I’ve made plenty of mistakes, from overbooking a market to not taking the time to learn the best way to promote my band.


Then I got a job as the editor of a music magazine, and another as a talent buyer at a long-running venue in Denver. I saw the industry from the other side and learned what venues, media, managers, and other industry pros want to see from bands.


In my book So, You Have A Band, I discuss everything a young musician needs to know to grow a band. You’ll learn how to present yourself professionally to media and venues. How to form an LLC or S-Corp. How to draft a band agreement. How to book your first DIY tour, social media presence for bands, and much more.


For the amateur or aspiring musician, So, You Have a Band is a must-have resource for building your music career as an entrepreneurial business and setting out on the path to success.

Tim is phenomenal. He brings a perspective from the music industry that can be applied to any other industry. The brand building of an individual or a band is very focused, very sharp, and he takes that lens and applies (it) in ways that are often forgotten.

Tim is like a prodigy.

I got all the guys in our band to read this book, and it helped us get on track with the back-of-house stuff. Tim basically told us exactly what we needed to do, and the operation of the group is much smoother now.
