Recommended services for independent musicians and electronic music producers...

The amount of services for independent musicians and producers available today can overwhelm even seasoned industry veterans, not to mention wet-ear newbies to the music production game.

Then, as if the sheer volume of products, companies and services isn't enough, one has to also keep up with rapid pace of change in the music production field. Sheeshkebab!

Now, you can obviously not keep up with all of the services out there but you can at least keep track of the better ones and use them as you see fit for your particular business. On this page below you'll find listed the products, companies and services for musicians and producers which I find worth recommending.

This list is kept as short as possible because the idea is to mention only reputable companies who provide helpful services for independent musicians and producers like us, not to provide the longest, most comprehensive list known to humankind. Quality over quantity!

So, we stick to music business resources which...

  • ... are of exceptional quality,
  • ... are effective and delivers in both value and genuine benefits,
  • ... address your needs as an independent musician or producer.

Please note that the services mentioned below are general music business resources and not music production related.  You'll find my recommended music production resources here.
