For me, the music business is this wonderful industry that has given me so much in the three decades that I’ve been involved with it. Quite simply, music, the business of music and networking with the industries that are involved and surround it is a way of life for me, as a professional musician.

I’ve created Corey Stewart Online to help all musicians at any level, expand on what music business knowledge they already have or, to perhaps help budding yet ambitious musicians start off their journey towards creative independence and self sufficiency.

This website is my humble attempt to document all of the aspects of the music business and the music industry in general that I have either directly experienced myself or, what I’ve discovered on the internet along the way through hand picked articles and other sources of curated information.

On a personal level, I want this website to constantly remind me of why I chose to become a professional musician in the first place.

It is a well known fact that great music is the backbone of the music industry however, in todays music industry a musician has to be much more than just an artist waiting to be discovered… RIGHT?

To be really taken seriously in today’s music industry, a musician has to be very business savvy. That is how important the music business is in the whole scheme of things.

You need to learn how to wear many hats.

I feel it’s really important that performing songwriters and musicians have the best information at their fingertips as this will enable them to be the best musicians that they can be.

Over time, this website will grow and evolve because it’s my goal to have this website become one of the most trusted sources of music business and music industry information on the web.

This site can only develop in the long term with direct input from YOU, so if in the future, there are any questions that you may have about the music business or the music industry in general, just let me know and I will do my very best to answer them.

In the meantime, I wish you all well on your respective musical journeys, wherever it takes you but let’s take this first step together… NOW!
