New E-Book Provides Inside Look Into Music Business

Ohio, USA – Recently released e-book Rock Realities by Zachary Fenell gives an insider look into the music business. The e-book compiles into one collection articles, each based off a phone interview with a different musician. These musicians mostly fall within the pop/rock/indie/alternative genres.

Through interviewing various artists Fenell creates a comprehensive resource capturing musicians’ perspectives on the music business. All together Rock Realities contains interviews with the following.

• Jason Stollsteimer (The Von Bondies/The Hounds Below/PONYSHOW)

• Billy Jack Skillet (Lucid Grey)

• Jake Nielsen

• Stacey Randol

• Eric Halborg (The Swayback)

• Dave Erickson (Summertime Dropouts)

• Todd Wilkinson with Chuck Doom (Team Sleep)

• Chris Hendricks

• Andrew W.K.

• Maddy Walsh (The Blind Spots)

• Steve Mackin (Mulu Lizi)

• Mike Hill (Tombs)

• Jesse Magee (Leftstronger)

Veteran music journalist Alan Cross encouraged musicians to checkout Rock Realities. Via his website A Journey of Musical Things, Cross said in-part “(Rock Realities) offers some serious truths about what you need to know.” He goes on to add, “It’s not just some dude pontificating. He went to some good sources for advice.”

Fenell in his comments explained why he wrote Rock Realities. “Like a record or cassette tape, my motives to write Rock Realities proved two sided. A, I aimed to establish a resource aspiring musicians can consult for advice. B, by interviewing upcoming independent artists I looked to offer music fans a tool for new music discovery.”

Accompanying discographies at each selection’s end makes said discovery an easy exploration. With links embedded to artists’ albums, new music remains two taps away. Tap one takes you to an album’s sales page on Amazon or Barnes & Noble’s website. Select whether you want a single song or a whole album and execute the second tap.


You can find Rock Realities available on the Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook.
