  • "For The Record" is the ultimate compendium of insights and wisdom covering every aspect of today's music business - from the fundamentals of songwriting to the cutting edge of marketing and digital distribution - direct from the mouths of the artists, executives and entrepreneurs who walk the walk.

    The book contains a foreword by Roger Brown (President, Berklee College of Music) and exclusive one-on-one conversations with Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees (in one of the last interviews before his untimely passing), Kelly Rowland, Wyclef Jean, Ali Campbell of UB40 and executives such as Julie Greenwald (Chairman/COO, Atlantic Records) and John Paul DeJoria, the co-founder of Patrón Tequila and Paul Mitchell.

  • For anyone looking to break into the music industry at any level, this book is a must read. It's as powerful as sitting across the table and getting it straight from the folks who are at the top of their game.
    - Timbaland (Multiple Grammy Award-Winning, Multi-Platinum-Selling Artist, Producer & Songwriter)

    For the Record keeps it real, putting you right in the conversation with everyone from music executives to songwriting veterans to up and coming YouTube stars. There's something here for anyone who wants to pursue this career.
    - Larry Rudolph (Manager of Britney Spears, Aerosmith, Pitbull, etc.)

    Where else can you find wisdom on the creative process from greats like Neil Sedaka and Robin Gibb? Or the cutting edge of music marketing from the founders of Cornerstone and Fader Magazine? FTR is the ultimate Master Class on the industry.
    - Greg Thompson (President, Maverick Management; Maverick Clients: Madonna, U2, The Weeknd, etc.)

  • Neil Sedaka, legendary singer/songwriter:
    "There are two approaches when trying to create a timeless hit record: one is with the market, something that sounds like it should be on the radio today; and, something that is against the market, that is so different that you have no competition whatsoever."

    Randy Phillips, former CEO of AEG Live; former manager of Usher, Prince, Lionel Richie, Guns N' Roses, etc.:
    "Today, to be a manager is not just to manage a recording artist, but being a brand manager at a big company."

    Riggs Morales, Senior Vice President of A&R and Artist Development at Atlantic Records:
    "Reinvention is the key to longevity. You have to switch it up, especially producers and even artists. You have to switch it up."
