WHAT THEY SAY
Just Get Out There by artist/author Gilli Moon is a true testament to DIY progress (and success) in the music business. It has been a long time since so much "good stuff" has been embodied in one great "tell all" book. If you are a musician, or a performer, this book is a must have. I will recommend it to my students. Gilli presents sharp and insightful comments about every facet of the music industry. She should know, as her life has been spent hip deep in independent music. Buy this book.

As someone who lectures about public relations for SFSU's Recording course, Cal
Berkeley, and the SF MusicTech Summit, I believe this is one of the best indie DIY books to emerge in recent years. This info is invaluable, especially in an era where creating a lucrative career for oneself in the music industry can be so perplexing and frustrating without the right information, tools and support.
