Day Two of CD Baby’s FREE virtual DIY Musician Conference


CD Baby’s annual DIY Musician Conference continues today through Saturday and entry to the virtual gathering is free and open to everyone.

It’s a great opportunity to learn from music industry experts at absolutely no cost.  Some notable speakers include representatives from Spotify, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Pandora.

I’ll be doing a few Bonsai online coaching sessions on Friday thanks to my friends at BerkleeOnline where I authored and teach Touring 101.

Sign up to attend the DIY Musician Conference here.
