  Lately, there’s been far too many people popping up in my Facebook news feed slinging information on how to get a fanbase for a bunch of money or a subscription of $100 or more. Noise Creators was founded because we saw the potential to make the music world a better place. 7 years ago I started a blog called Musformation to give free information on how to promote your music to musicians. That blog led me to publishing the book  Get More Fans: The DIY Guide To The New Music Business which is now in its fourth edition and is taught in a dozen university. It’s received a lot of praise from musicians, music business types and many others. Today with Noise Creators help I’m releasing a free eBook that gives musicians concise information on what they should be doing to gain a fanbase. This book was designed to be read in under 30 minutes so musicians can get this information fast and get to work in order to be as effective as possible.
