Bob D'Eith has worked in the Canadian music business for over two decades as a musician, producer, music lawyer, label owner and music advocate.

Independent artists are having to develop themselves more than ever in this new music industry. In this book, "A Career in Music", Bob sets out a path for artists to follow towards success.

While the book applies to all musicians, it has a uniquely Canadian focus, making this a one of a kind resource for Canadian artists.

As an eBook, Bob D'Eith has also included links to royalty registration websites, music resources, artist references and examples of the good and the bad in the business.

Forward excerpt by Grant Lawrence:

"Bob D'Eith gets this business. In fact, as you are about to read, Bob understands far, far more about the music business that I ever could. For the past quarter century, Bob has done it all. He's been a musician, a recording studio owner, a music publisher, the longtime executive director of Music BC, a chairman of FACTOR NAB, a JUNO rep, and is one of the co-founders of BC's hugely successful artist development Peak Performance Project. Most importantly, Bob is an entertainment lawyer. He knows exactly what you as an artist can and cannot do legally speaking. It doesn't get any more clear-cut than that.

I'm very glad that my friend Bob finally decided to get off his lazy ass and write this book. It needed to be written. I just wish he had done it 25 years earlier. It would have made my life as an independent musician much, much easier. Tap into his knowledge, enjoy the ride, and maybe even buy him a beer. He deserves it."

  • A must read for indie musicians!

    By johnwelshmusic
    This is a great book, I wish I had read something like this 10 years ago! Bob writes in a personal style that makes this easy to read yet informative. He shares alot of real life examples and personal anecdotes throughout the book and provides lots of links to resources to delve even deeper into the ins and outs of a career in music. Seriously the money you will save from reading this book by not making mistakes that alot of us do will pay for the book 100 times over!
  • A Must Read for ALL Canadian Musicians

    By Rural_Records
    Bob has hit a home run with this book. As an indie artist and sole proprietor of my own music publishing company and "label", I wish I had this book when I started out on my forays into this world. It would have saved me a heck of a lot of time, money and efforts spent in the wrong places. "A Career In Music" is a true compass for Canadian musicians to get their bearings straight and on the path towards establishing a REAL career in the music industry. Thanks Bob, a lot of people have been waiting a long time for this one!
  • Fantastic!!!

    By mickdallavee
    Bob D'Eith has singlehandedly written the 'go-to' book for ANYONE in the Music Industry (especially Canada). His insights are easy to read and the links (in iBooks) to what he is talking about make it so easy to cross reference. Then there is the 'Appendices'!!! This is THE music industry bible of 2013.
