It's Called The Music Business

Check out the March 2009 (#248) issue of Alternative Press magazine in which I reveal some "insider" advice in the DIY column. This issue features Thursday or Bring Me The Horizon on the cover.

I started reading AP about six years ago - it's one of the best ways to find out about new music and it goes out to more than 200,000 eager music fans. It's on shelves now at most major stores - you can pick it up at Newbury Comics, Best Buy, FYE, Hollister, Hot Topic, or where ever you fancy.

Hi, My name is Chris and you have my dream job. I'm a junior at San Francisco State University majoring in web and graphic design. My background is mainly in music, I sing in my own band called the Midnight Strangers (www.myspace.com/midnightstrangers) and I play drums in a band called Maldroid (www.myspace.com/maldroid), but my goal is to become a full-time web designer for bands on major record labels. I'm a beginner when it comes to using web design software and I wanted to see if you could share with me the software you feel I should focus on learning in my quest to become a successful designer such as yourself. My goals are to become an expert in web design software and to work for a company who shares my passion for music and the web design. I'd be eternally grateful for any advice you can offer!

Thank you for your time!!!
Chris
