The Music Industry
Remember that while a manager, booking agent, publicist, publisher and/or record label can be vital for your success, it’s your work ethic that will always be the most important.

Radio and Other Media
"Radio is not life or death for your music." - Kevin Mitchell, Jebediah

Band name DOs and DONTs
After three years of Unearthing high school bands we've discovered a curse! Every winning band has so far has changed their name. We’re hoping this year by providing a few DOs and DONTs we may break the curse once and for all.
You've come so far so soon, young grasshopper, but there's still more to do, so it’s time to spread the word about your band.
Don’t think twice about it, playing live is crucial.
DIY recording is excellent for quick and cheap demos of your music.
Instead of trying to be a creative powerhouse straight off the bat, take it slowly and toy around with other peoples’ songs.
Rehearsing is important for all artists, but especially for a young band as it will give you the opportunity to refine your skills and become better acquainted with your new band members.
Starting a Band
You’ve taken the first step and declared your intentions, but where do you go from here?
The Doctor Knows Best
Starting a band is easy. Get some mates who play instruments or know their way around a computer, write some songs, become famous. It's pretty much that simple.
