How To Release Your Own Music – Video Presentation

In January 2019 I was asked to present a talk on how to release your own music to a group of people in Riga, Latvia.

It was the first time I’d done anything live, with regard to self-releasing, but I took up the challenge and wanted to fit as much information into the talk as possible.

Turns out, I went overboard and spoke for almost TWO HOURS on the topic! I had so many stories, tips and things I wanted to discuss.

Anyway, I re-recorded the presentation here, and was more concise and a little faster. I managed to get the presentation down to a little over an hour.

You can watch the full presentation in the video and it should give you a really good overview to releasing music yourself.

It covers:

  • The release process and what’s involved.
  • How to make sure your music is good enough.
  • My own backstory and release history.
  • Budgeting for releases.
  • ways to get your music out there.
  • ways to build your audience and fanbase.
  • The differences between releasing yourself and on other labels.
  • Other ways musicians are making money.
  • A range of lessons and tips.

It should serve as a really solid primer, and combined with this blog and my courses it should have everything you need to get started!
