The Business of Music

I've been working on my full-length album for a year now, and it is finally completed. There are some slight details that need to be worked out before sending it to the printer, but the music part is done. It feels good to say that.
Now my attention is turning to promoting the album. I've been thinking about this for awhile (I've had about a year) as I try to figure out the business end of things, and I've come to some conclusions mirrored by a great post by George Howard that I linked to from Tunecore .
Basically, the conclusions are as follows:
1) create
2) be real
3) don't worry
4) make a plan with specific goals
5) work incrementally
6) build on the existing foundation
7) enjoy it!
So I'm going ahead to plan a CD-release here in Lancaster for Feb 7th @ Building Character, kind of like last year's EP release at the Station House. Hope to see you there!
