Randy Chertkow and Jason Feehan are musicians, authors, journalists, public speakers, instructors, and consultants. Their recently released book, Making Money With Music (St. Martin's Press, Macmillan), show musicians how to tap over 100+ revenue streams, grow their fan base, and thrive in today's music environment.
Previous to that, they wrote the critically-acclaimed The Indie Band Survival Guide (1st & 2nd Editions, Macmillan), The DIY Musician (Random House), and are feature writers and columnists at Electronic Musician Magazine.
They professionally speak and consult on music business and musician revenue development at conventions, music organizations (The Recording Academy -- GRAMMY.org), businesses (Guitar Center), cities (New York City, Austin, Chicago), and schools (SAE, Music Industry Workshop, Columbia College). This includes speaking at venues such as Carnegie Hall.
Their band, Beatnik Turtle, released over 500 songs spanning 20 albums, licensed music to Disney and Viacom, and wrote music for TV, films, and theater including Chicago's Second City. In 2007, they released a song every single day of the year from their website TheSongOfTheDay.com.
