"Becoming a recording
artist can seem like an impossible goal only accomplished by the lucky
and the privileged. Not true. This guide gives you what you need to know
to make it happen."
"One of the first people
I met in the business was Kathy Baylor. She provided a great sense of direction
and information for me. She knows a great deal about the many facets of
the business. This book is very informative and easy to understand."
"Having worked with Kathy
Baylor for several years (at Polygram and Universal Records), I have experienced
her savvy business style and grace. 'Kudos' to her for writing this book
for others who are not as privileged as I to have known her on a personal
level. This book will surely encourage and inspire people."
"In a business made up
of impostors, would-be politicians, and charlatans, Kathy Baylor is an
uncommon commodity in the music business. Honest, hard working, knowledgeable,
creative, experienced... did I say honest!"
Artist ("Kiss the Rain") and EMI Songwriter
"Kathy Baylor is one of
very few people that truly understands what struggling artists go through.
She puts together a very realistic but effective down-to-earth approach
to getting around in this reputedly dirty game of music making. She knows
the situation in and out, through and through, and exactly how to handle
each specific situation intelligently. Believe me, everything in this book
is time tested... without Kathy I wouldn't be halfway where I am today."
Records Recording Artist and Platinum Record Producer
"I ordered your book about
two weeks ago and I must say it is "all that!" My family has been in the
business a long time and I really found your material amazing. I am currently
in the process of putting together a hip hop demo but also starting my
own label. Your book has sped me way up and I now know 3 times as much.
Thank you for your terrific material."
"For music industry novices
Kathy has always been a great source of knowledge —
she has a sophisticated in-depth
understanding of the creative and business ends of music, and the ability
to communicate that information in everyday language. It makes perfect
sense that Kathy would write this book, and anyone who reads it will truly
be ready to tackle the music business."
