Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first reference book all about the business side of gospel and urban music. Hip-hop and R&B hold 25 percent of the consumer music market. Another 20 percent is held by religious (gospel and Christian) music, soul, disco, dance, and jazz. Heres the first reference book to offer sound business and legal advice specifically tailored to these areas of the music industry. Securing a record deal, starting a label, publishing music, marketing and promoting—this is the information that today’s musicians need. With insightful examples, quotes, and anecdotes from dozens of top artists and executives, This Business of Urban Music is entertaining as well as informative. Author James J. Walker, Jr., is a leading entertainment lawyer, representing such well-known clients as Cole, Jamie Foxx, DMX, and many others. Now he brings his years of professional expertise in litigation, business, intellectual property, and corporate law to This Business of Urban Music—at a price every aspiring musician can afford.

Synopsis:

James J. Walker, Jr., is the managing partner of Walker and Associates, a top entertainment law firm. He serves on the board of the Stellar Awards Gospel Music Academy and is a member of the Gospel Music Association and the Gospel Music Workshop of America. He lives in Wallingford, Connecticut.
