Book Review: The Blueprint

By Frank Demilt

(hardcover, Kindle) $20.00

Here’s a terrific primer on how to be a successful artist today, from A to Z. And since the author is a professional sound engineer as well as an experienced A&R representative, he spends considerable space on the ins and outs of the entire recording process, from pre-production to mastering. All in all, the book gives excellent insights and advice on all aspects of the music industry––including distribution, marketing, touring, label submissions––particularly for up-and-coming artists.
