    Easy Money? The Definitive UK Guide To Funding Music Projects – The biggest time saver of 2014!

    by Remi Harris; published by MusicTank, London, Sept 2013.

    Our first ever interactive, PDF e-book – developed specifically to not only guide you through the stages of funding but also give you ‘quick click’ access to all the digital resources that we’ve harvested to help you – case studies and over 100 funding sources across the six main funding destinations

    Easy Money? – a must-read funding guide that puts the access to finance issue firmly under the spotlight, providing musicians, entrepreneurs, micro business and SMEs with a hands-on answer to the question “how can I get funding for my music project?”

    Building on her extensive knowledge of creative industries’ funding, former AIM General Manager and UK Music Director of Operations, author Remi Harris identifies and considers the six main sources of money: Grants, Friends & Family, Crowdfunding, Sponsorship, Debt and Investment – and the five-stage process essential to securing music business funding.

    This digital-only publication has been designed to be used as both a reference guide for selective use by readers wanting to know about a particular funding source and an ordered, comprehensive guide to the six key sources of funding options available. The chapters are broadly ordered to take account of the level of funding sought, the associated costs of borrowing, and the processes involved, from the relatively straightforward to the complex.

    Packed with tips, advice and contributions from 40-plus artists, managers, entrepreneurs, music businesses and funding organisations – including End of the Road festival’s Sofia Hagberg, Red Grape Management and Carl Barât – this guide’s plain-speaking tone and accessible structure demystifies how funding works for musicians, entrepreneurs and micro-businesses, helping them discover sources of money they were previously unaware or unsure of. It also includes details and links to 100+ grant funding destinations.
