This business of music is not easy.
Don’t take our word for it, see what some pretty successful people have said about it.

The percentage you’re paying is too high priced
While you’re living beyond all your means
And the man in the suit has just bought a new car
From the profit he’s made on your dreams
TrafficLow Spark of a High Heeled Boy
One likes to believe in the freedom of music
But glittering prizes and endless compromises
Shatter the illusion of integrity, yeah!
RushSpirit of the Radio
You suck my blood like a leech
You break the law and you breach
Screw my brain till it hurts
You’ve taken all my money,and you want more
Talk like a big business tycoon
But you’re just a hot-air balloon
QueenDeath on Two Legs
People want to keep you in the dark
Watch out for piranhas
There’s always piranhas

“The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs.
There’s also a negative side.”
