Career-Op Gift Guide # 9: The Craft and Business of Songwriting

# 9 The Craft and Business of Songwriting

While it might be considered a niche career, many thousands of people pursue their musical dreams every year. In such a competitive industry, you need a reliable and knowledgeable guide. John Braheny provides just such a guide.

This highly successful music industry book, The Craft and Business of Songwriting, by my good friend, John Braheny, is now in its 3rd edition. This edition contains a substantial amount of new content, including a podcasting sidebar written by yours truly.

I was honored when he asked me to write the podcasting sidebar for his book. As he prepared this latest edition, podcasting was just starting to enter the public psyche and, even then, I sensed its effects on songwriters and the music industry as a whole were sure to be profound. Since I was an experienced computer consultant, there at the very beginning, (and not a bad amateur guitarist) I was in excellent position to help his readers understand this new technology.
