Is the music industry right for me?? From Heather McDonald

Hey guys.

I found this interesting blog post by a woman called Heather McDonald ( no I’m not talking about the actress lol )  who has written blogs and shares her experience within the music industry. For those who are wondering Heather McDonald has been working within the music industry since her teenage years. She has worked in many different aspects of the industry such as promotion, music tours, independent record labels etc. She has many many years of experience so it would be highly recommended to take notes!!!

On her blog sites she give many detailed tips and advice about working in the industry as well as giving pros and cons for each job sector. From what i have been reading so far they are a lot of key information which even i didn’t know or realize how important they were. She also talks about ”how to guide’‘ when starting a band, record, booking etc as well as advice on contracts and copyrights, music career guides and industry jobs. images (2)

I think this blog is well worth checking out especially for those who wish to break it into the industry and have a big passion for music itself. There is also a FAQ section and you can also email her to if you have any other questions you would like to know musicians@aboutguide.com

Who is who part 2 (Moses Ssebandeke)

I have known Moses for 5-6 years now.  I first met him at a place called YCTV and it was a filming school charity based. It was a place were young people from the age of 14-25 years old use to come and pitch their own projects they would like to do as well as being taught how to film, using Camera and taking part in projects e.g short films or magazine shows. Unfortunately it closed down from 2009 March. However Moses still persuaded his dream into becoming a directer. me

He has since them directed Music videos, one in particular the LNDs, worked for Live Magazine, have been on radio 1 extra as part of a apprentice and is currently doing a internship with the BBC which he will work in different fields within the BBC. Moses has also done some of his own music, writing his own films as well ad taking part in play and poetry slams. I think he is one of the people i know that has done so much since the time i have known him and i am happy to this day to still know him and now working with him in future projects.

If you would like to know more about Moses and his works please check out some of the links below where you can find all the information you need to know about him and some of his amazing work he have produced.
