book The music industry has never moved at a faster pace and for those who work in the business - either onstage or behind the scenes - it is essential to understand how the ‘new’ business works.

At its core the music business is about connecting the creators of music, either in a live or recorded form, with their audience. This book provides a definitive survey of the business and people involved in making these connections and helps newcomers and established participants make sense of the crowded and evolving landscape.

Welcome to the Jungle – Navigating the Music Business in Australia is an “anecdotal textbook”, meaning that it draws on the experience and wisdom of over 90 Australian and international music business professionals.

Clocking in at 570 pages Welcome to the Jungle – Navigating the Music Business in Australia cuts through the theory and jargon and explains the business through the eyes and words of those people actually leading the industry today. The book is a ground breaking and substantial work that no industry participant or aspirant should be without.
