16 Indie Artists Offer Words of Advice to Other Indie Artists

This comes from a site called Electric Kiwi.  It’s good reading.

As creative people, we’re always learning and growing. To close this part of the #GoIndie series, I asked 16 artists to share some advice based on what they’ve learned and experienced in their own careers. Everyone’s journey and experience is going to be different, but I think that there are things that we can all learn from one another, regardless of our genre, location or background.

The response to this series has been fantastic, and I want to keep things going. I’ll be reaching out to more artists in the near future for more interviews covering various aspects of being independent. If you’re interested in offering some thoughts, please get in touch.

Please also get involved in the discussion both in the comments and on Twitter, using the #GoIndie hashtag. I’ve also created a #GoIndie Twitter list where you can find and follow all of the featured artists.

Read on.

    Hi Alan! Thanks so much for sharing this. I knew your name was familiar – I remember reading your book “Over The Edge: The Revolution and Evolution of New Rock” back when I was studying for my degree. Honoured that you’re sharing my content after I first read yours a few years ago! Thanks again.
