Every band or artist possess the building blocks to success. But as every successful artist has proven, at the end of the day, it’s your band, your music, and your responsibility to do the work required to succeed.
Tour:Smart will show you what it takes to tour successfully and to get the most out of your brand. It is part basic knowledge, part math, part poetry, part alchemy, and part understanding that each and every one of the limitations placed upon you by terrain, physical distance, your bank account, head, heart, and your willingness to choose to ignore the things that stand in your way. In pulling all of this apart over the last 30 years, Martin Atkins has reached a delightful conclusion: it is only the people who are prepared to risk everything that will be rewarded.
