Randy Chertkow and Jason FeehanRandy Chertkow and Jason Feehan, authors of the critically-acclaimed book The Indie Band Survival Guide, DooBeeDoo contributors and Electronic Musician Columnists, will be running a workshop to Musicians For Musicians (MFM) about how musicians can improve their income. These Chicago authors are in town speaking at Carnegie Hall for New York Music month and are making a special appearance at MFM to share new revenue ideas based on their forthcoming book, Making Money with Music, to be released September 4th, 2018 from St. Martin’s Press/Macmillan.

Chertkow and Feehan are musicians and have been writing about the tech-driven music business for over 12 years. The talk at MFM will cover the topic of money and music, which they’ve been speaking on since 2013 when they gave their first talk to the San Francisco Grammy Chapter’s Music Business Night School. They’ve since released an online course with that title, and catalogued over 250 methods to make money with music, which formed the basis for their new book.
