As a successful independent artist from Orlando, Florida, with seven years of touring experience with my label LoUd Life Crew, I know firsthand the challenges and rewards of being on the road. When I first started out, I was booking my own shows and navigating the complex world of touring with little guidance. But through trial and error, I learned what it takes to get booked for shows and tours as an independent hip hop artist.
Touring is an essential part of building a fanbase and growing your career as a musician. It's an opportunity to connect with fans, network with like-minded professionals, and gain exposure in new markets. But getting booked for shows and tours is not always easy, especially if you're an independent artist without the backing of a manager, major record label or touring agency.
That's why I've written this book, to share my knowledge and experience with other independent hip hop artists who are looking to get booked for shows and tours. In this book, I've unloaded my seven years of touring experience into 10 quick essential tips that will help you navigate the world of touring and get booked for shows and ways to manage it.
These tips are based on my own experience as well as the experiences of other successful independent hip hop artists that I've met on the road. They cover everything from how to build your fanbase, Booking, promoting your shows and how to stay organized and deal with unexpected challenges on the road.
Whether you're just starting out or you've been touring for a while, these tips will help you take your touring game to the next level. So, if you're ready to hit the road and start building your career as an independent hip hop artist, let's get started!
