The American Idol Cattle Call Begins
by No. 1 Best Selling Author, Jaci Rae
The Cattle Call has begun as season six of American Idol is underway. Tens of thousands of people are lining up all over the USA hoping to be chosen for a chance to be the next American Idol. Only a few will be selected for the final competition, but what about the others? Will they go back home broken hearted believing that their 'big chance' has passed them by, never to be heard from again? Or will they take control of their own career and propel themselves to the top without Simon, Paula, or Randy's help?
Award winning singer and author Jaci Rae did it alone and built a successful music career the hard way. "Artists all over the world are hoping for their big break. They think if they get a recording contract their music career is set for life. What they don't realize is that the music industry is about making money and doesn't necessarily care about them as a person." Jaci says.
"The aspiring artist needs to know the business side of the music industry before they attempt to navigate it so they won't be ripped off or surprised when they find out it's a loan they're receiving, should they be signed, and not a large sum of money that was given to them."
Some professionals hide their secrets, but not Jaci Rae. She has generously given struggling artists the keys to the music business, showing artists how to market themselves and get much needed publicity with little or no money inside her book, The Indie Guide to Music, Marketing and Money. But she didn't stop there. Jaci Rae also includes music industry personnel's address, phone numbers and email addresses so artists can use the knowledge they have gained at the bargaining table of a record company, management firm or booking agency.
