Let’s face it, being an indie musician can sometimes feel like being hurled into a zombie apocalypse. We don’t know everything but we’re gathering a few morsels of information that have been put to good use here at Fiction Towers and we will be sharing them with you here. No promises, no guarantees but real observations from actual indie musicians on what works for them and what does not.
