So here it is, the first post! I’ve been meaning to create this blog for a long time now. It’s been in the back of my mind forever so I’m very glad to finally bring it to life. Recently I came across this article in AP Magazine about bands and money, called “No Money, Mo’ Problems: Why even successful bands struggle financially” by Emily Zemler. Which really relates so much to artists and money. It’s all about people doing things that they love but sometimes it’s very hard! It talk’s to a few long time and new artists about trying to stay on the road and staying financially ok.
