Phil Taggart, apart from his work playing bass in Colenso Parade, is one of BBC Radio 1’s most in the know presenters.
With over a decade of experience in the music industry, Taggart decided to put what he knows to paper. The result is his new book Phil Taggart’s Slacker Guide To The Music Industry.
Here’s a wee promo video to whet your appetite.
The book aims to inform budding musicians and industry heads as to the hows, whos and whys of the modern industry. Featuring contributions from leading voices including our own Niall Byrne, it’s the perfect guide for any artist unsure of how to navigate the jungle of commercial music and defy the sceptics who say it’s impossible to make a career doing what you love.
It’s a book from people in the know, featuring over 70 contributors. It’s taken Taggart over 2 years to conduct interviews and extract the relevant information from the right sources. This is no cheap trick. Definitely a wise investment for all you creatives out there and an informative insight for music heads too.
The book is due out on May 16th, you can pre-order a copy now here.
