Lesson for all musicians

Work

Read above. I live by that and so should you. The price you accept is the price your worth. This is how you must price your work. Got it? Click the image to download a wallpaper so you remember.

    really? ‘work for free?’ sorry but (mainly) amateurs working for free is partly how musicians have gotten/found themselves in this current mess. i appreciate your sentiment but i would suggest a new wallpaper…

  2. Working for free means that you work on YOUR terms. Getting paid means you work on their terms. If your going to do what others tell you, you better get your full rate.

    Kessin, I couldnt disagree more with that statement. Pretty Lights works for “free”, and how much was Radioheads last?
    Work with such talent, ability and passion so that compensation becomes both irrelevant and guaranteed. It really is either people in it for the money or for the music; there will always be a lucrative market for the performance of quality music. I’ll torrent your music and if I love it will always be happy to pay heftily to see you live.
