The Indie Bible is a wonderful resource for independent musicians. It lists THOUSANDS of places where you can get your music reviewed and your songs played on the radio. All music genres are covered. In addition, it lists hundreds of online music libraries and music distributors where you can sell your music, over 4,000 publications that review music, and resources and articles galore to help the independent musician navigate the ever-changing world of the music industry.
