“The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs.

There's also a negative side.”

- Hunter Thompson

Not necessarily so.

There are even more sad songs than quotable quotes lamenting the struggles that musicians go through in effort to make a living doing what they love to do.


So what's the best way to boost your income? 


Play more gigs? Play covers that the crowds want to hear instead of originals that really mean something to you? Get thousands and thousands of followers on social media? Take a lot of merch and cd's to your shows?  Get your music on all the internet platforms? Get local radio play? 


We believe that what artists and bands need most is "non performance revenue", which was called "mailbox money" back in the day. Make money when you aren't performing. Spend your time creating instead of hustling. Concentrate on composing and perfecting new songs. Sound like fun?


What's the best way to establish an automatic income stream in the music business?


We have a proven system that will work for you, if you can bring us three things:


A good recording of a good original song.

A good music video based in the specific song

Plus at least $3,000, $6,000 or $9,000 that you can put to work for ninety days.


Yes, that's a good chunk of change.

You could buy some really nice equipment for that.

OH, wait... you already did.

What is your Return On Investment? 


How many times in the last year has that equipment paid for itself?


If you don't have all these elements in place right now, you should be in the process of getting them together any way you can, so you can turn on your money machine.


Is our system simple and easy?  

Well, YOUR part is. 


Our part is extraordinarily complex, took almost two years to build and perfect, and has now been proven with over 50 artists. We use a carefully engineered combination of website technology, social media reach, video plays, audio plays, album sales, and merch sales to generate revenue to fund your music business development, including funds to continue running the system so that it keeps on making you money.

New Music Lives...

is a division of Lightwork Digital Influence. 


We recognize that the community of performing and recording artists and bands are small business owners with very unique challenges. 


The vast majority of these creatives would work for free if they could afford it because making music is their passion.

Our mission is to help them turn their passion into profit so they can concentrate on doing what they love: making the music that YOU love.
