    Hello Dae,

    I really enjoy your blog. There seems to me like there isn’t very much music industry blogs that are updated daily. You do a great job of that!

    I wanted to ask what are the steps to setting up my own publishing company and signing my first song that is not mine. Then what is the day to day management of the publishing company look like there after?

    I think I understand setting up but I’m having a hard time understanding the workflow/”operations” once I have my first couple songs signed to the publishing company.

    Do you believe that a musician can earn a livable wage off of their music, touring and merchandise as an indie artist?

    • Dae Bogan says :

      It’s happening every day. Thousands of independent music creators earn a sustainable living from their music and live performances. The Worldwide Independent Network recently reported that nearly 40% of record music revenue (about $6 Billion) comes from the independent sector. This doesn’t even included live music and merchandise. So, yes it’s possible.

      • Brenden "NevaMore" Martel says :

        I actually agree. I think that going for sponsorships/endorsement deals is vital too or parlaying your musical brand success into other ventures, too.
