By choosing this tier, you'll be contributing to an especially important project of mine, personally and professionally, that literally would not be possible without your help.

You will receive all the benefits in the previous tier, PLUS exclusive updates on my upcoming book about artists who treat their careers like startups.

This will include but not be limited to:
  • Syntheses of interesting research papers and other resources I incorporate into the book.
  • Previews of interviews with book subjects.
  • Overall reflections on the book-writing process.
Includes Discord benefits
Benefactors
$40 per month

You are an incredibly generous human being!


You will receive all the benefits in the previous tier, PLUS exclusive access to monthly video group hangouts with me, during which we discuss the most topical music-industry trends and news of the moment, as well as any burning questions you have for me about my writing process or about music at large.

Includes Discord benefits
Clients
$200 per month
As a Client, you will receive all the benefits in the previous tier, PLUS the opportunity to do a bespoke, one-on-one consultation with me for every month you are an active member. During our consultation, I will answer any specific questions you may have about your own startup/company/project/career, including but not limited to the following:
  • Latest trends in the music-tech market
  • Positioning within the wider music industry (e.g. who are your predecessors, competitors and potential complementors)
  • Overview of standard music and media business models, and how they affect you
  • Marketing, user-acquisition, PR-outreach and partnership strategy
  • Applications of higher-level business and tech frameworks

We'll touch on your priorities ahead of our consultation to ensure that you get the most value possible.

For now, this tier has EXTREMELY LIMITED SPOTS (max 15), as I will be testing whether this consultation model can be effectively run through a platform like Patreon.
Includes Discord benefits
