#dudewhatstourlike
A Survival Guide for the Touring Musician
by Brett Wondrak

Overview


The life of a touring artist isn't what most people expect, and underground music is increasingly becoming DIY. Because of this, today's touring musicians need to know how touring actually works. Artists must fill the shoes of not only performer, but as tour manager, merch guy, roadie, and much, much more. Learning how to manage so many different positions doesn't come easy, but with time and experience, one can learn to succeed in these roles. #DUDEWHATSTOURLIKE aims to help artists transition to life on the road, and entertain them while they learn.

About the author


Brett Wondrak is a songwriter and a self-taught guitarist for internationally-known metal band Affiance. Since 2006 Affiance has sold tens of thousands of albums, charted twice on Billboard's Top 200, and toured the United States, Canada, South Africa, and Europe. Throughout his time as a touring musician, Brett has acted as a mentor to up-and-coming metal bands—imparting his wisdom, sharing his extensive knowledge of the music industry, and providing tricks of the trade to tour smarter, not harder. Now, as Affiance winds down and puts their touring days behind them, Brett makes one last effort to reach out to aspiring musicians in an effort to keep them not only rocking, but roadworthy. Brett resides in his hometown of Cleveland, OH with his wife.
