Navigating the ever-changing music industry can be difficult at the best of times, let alone while dealing with a worldwide pandemic. Tees-based music charity Tees Music Alliance have continued to provide help and support to musicians during these difficult times, and today have launched their comprehensive guide, The Musician’s Atlas, as part of their Digital Tenderness project.

Designed as an invaluable digital resource for music activists to get ahead in the industry, The Musician’s Atlas is available to download for free from the TMA website, with an audio version also available and read by Bob Fischer.

The guide contains tips and articles on playing live, promotion, recording and production, management, labels, distribution and publishing, money matters, health and wellbeing from experts in their fields including The Kids Are Solid Gold, Wipe Out Music Publishing, artist manager David McNab, social media and streaming expert Henry Carden, photographer and videographer Amelia Read, Tracks’ Sarah Wilson, Butterfly Effect Records’ Stephen Gill, Art Mouse Promotions’ Hana Harrison, BBC Tees Introducing’s Rianne Thompson, NARC. editor Claire Dupree and producers Rob Irish and Paddy Jordan, plus inspirational interviews with some of the Tees Valley’s most successful musicians including Kingsley Hall, Vicky Wright, Leddie MC, Jamie Donnelly and Jon Horner.

Packaged in an easy-to-read, jargon-free and relatable publication, The Musician’s Atlas aims to keep musicians enthused, inspired and ready for any project and scenario they face.

Tees Music Alliance Music Development Coordinator, David Saunders says: “Knowledge is a key component of mobility in any business or scene. The Musician’s Atlas will help demystify the music industry and give artists the confidence to operate within it and therefore the best possible chance at succeeding. It offers relevant and helpful advice for those who want to make a career out of music, as well as those who just do it for a bit of fun, in an accessible and entertaining way. As someone who has been a performer and who has worked in music development, events and media for sometime, I repeatedly come across the same mistakes made by artists. This guide addresses many of those and offers best practices to make your life as a musician much easier and more enjoyable.”
