Do you ever feel more like a three ring circus than a musician trying to juggle all the moving parts of your music career? It can be so overwhelming trying too keep it all together as a DIY artist. But thankfully there are a ton of resources that can help you manage your music business like a pro!


I’ve curated a list here of some of my favorite resources and tools that have helped me to streamline and automate my own music career and I’m confident they can help you to turn your circus into a finely choreographed ballet too!

How I practice what I preach...

This page may contain affiliate links, which means that I might earn a small commission to help fund my live music addiction should choose to make a purchase using one of my links.


As you tune in to the podcast you’ll probably hear me talk about breaking the “starving artist” mindset. Partnering with brands and companies that I genuinely love and use allows me to practice what I preach.

It won’t cost you any extra, if fact you might even save a little money. AND you’ll be helping me support live music because I use the money I earn from affiliate commisons to buy concert tickets, merch and maybe a Shiner Bock or two...because live music and Shiner go together like Loretta and Conway!
