Seth Hanes is Philadelphia-based horn player and entrepreneur, and runs the excellent website The Musician’s Guide to Hustling, where he helps musicians get more gigs and create more – and more rewarding – connections with other musicians. I met Seth when he invited me to come on his site to talk about the differences between traditional publishing and self publishing, and I was impressed with his level of knowledge on marketing and effective promotion.

Seth just released his first book, Break into the Scene: A Musician’s Guide to Making Connections, Creating Opportunities, and Launching a Career, today, and I think that it’s a great addition to the library of any musician who wants clear, actionable advice on how to improve their career.

In the course of our conversation, we covered:

  • Freelancing
  • Having a versatile skillset
  • Scarcity vs abundance
  • Reaching out
  • Connecting with contractors
  • Marketing fundamentals
  • Considering the challenges of your prospective collaborators
  • Breaking into the Scene
