About This Course

Published 9/2015 English

Course Description

As the artist Manafest I've sold over 300,000 albums worldwide over 1,000,000 singles and toured over 20 different countries.

I've spent the last 10 years touring playing live shows, writing songs and attending conferences improving and eventually succeeding in the music industry. I'm tired of artists being broke. I have friends that have sold over 1,000,000 records but because they haven't setup their business correctly are forced to get a part time job driving for Uber.

I have put this course together for you - to which you have full lifetime access, including all the updates, for free.

I "take you by the hand" and "behind the scenes" and show you everything, explaining it in simple detail with videos and written support lectures.

His seamless, lightening-like blur between the spectrums of rap, hip-hop, rock and pop hasn't just led to 300,000-plus album sales and five coveted Juno Award nominations (essentially the Grammy equivalent in his home country of Canada), but also more than 1,000 shows logged over four continents.
