He crowd funded the book with his fans raising over $18,000. This book is a long time in the making as he began writing ideas over 1.5 years ago as he toured worldwide.
Over the past decade, Chris Greenwood has used the moniker Manafest to organically build his fan base playing over 1000 shows on 4 continents. In 2006, Manafest released Glory from which the rock anthem “Impossible,” featuring Thousand Foot Krutch’s Trevor McNevan, became a global hit.

In 2010, Manafest released his most critically acclaimed project, The Chase, which he received his second JUNO Award nomination as well as won a 2010 GMA Canada Award.

My name is Marika Siewert, and I am a top 40 charted artist, #1 charted international songwriter, as well as for the last 10 years have run an artist development and management company called Emerton Records. I have followed Chris's career and even shared the stage with him, and as a professional myself felt that this course was invaluable to the amateur musician and professional alike. In the music industry I believe you should never stop learning and even for myself, I learned so much that I didn't even know. Chris teaches with knowledge, experience and the passion to empower people into their God given goals and dreams, and this course is a practical handbook for anyone wanting to have a career in music. What I appreciate about it also, is that Chris touches not only on the practical steps, but most importantly the mindsets artists themselves have to overcome to move forward into greatness, but also how much belief is a factor in true success. I recommend this course to all my artists and peers, and would encourage you no matter what stage of career you're at to do this course and enhance your career, ministry, or business.
After having completed the course, let me tell you that I have learned a lot, and I'm very glad I have decided to take it! I've been able to answer many questions for which I haven't found answers before. It also made me think about specific topics that are really important (and often ignored) if you are planning to be somehow involved into being a musician. If you are new to the music business, this course will be a great orientation to you; you will find great tips and a lot of useful information, and you will end with an clear idea of the whole process that takes to get your music reach your audience. If you are already initiated, I'm sure you will still find great ideas and insights to add to your present knowledge bag. Besides, Christopher gives a very honest and highly motivational message through all the lessons, and explains things in a very structured and clear way, that makes the material very easy to follow. In summary, totally worth the money!
