Articles | About Chris

If you are interested in what I do as a music business consultant, and what my policies are for consulting with you, here are some facts about my service. Please read over them before you contact me to setup a time and day for our first consultation. I look forward to the possibility of working with you to reach music career goals.

  • My consultation service is an advisory service only. I help you - as an independent artist or band - plan out your career and/or CD marketing and promotion plans. Unlike a manager, I do not take on a project or do the required work for you, and I DO NOT SHOP DEMOS!
  • I am your personal music business coach, and I will teach you how record labels promote, market, and sell their music, and what you need to do to develop your music career or independent record label. In our consultations I will also educate you on how to work with the various gatekeepers and decision makers that you will encounter as you promote your music to on and offline distributors/stores, broadcasters, the press, live performance bookers, and through the popular social networking sites on the internet.
  • I am very selective on who I work with. I am only interested in working with artists and bands that are truly dedicated and committed to the business of being an independent businessman or woman, and can afford to spend some of their money on educating themselves through our consultations about the realities of the current music marketplace.
  • If you wish to discuss setting up an appointment, PLEASE EMAIL ME at chris@chrisknab.net. I work on an hourly fee basis of $200 per hour. (I do consultations by phone or in person if you live in the Seattle, Washington area),
  • When you make an appointment with me you must pay for the 1st hour in advance by credit card. ( I process all transactions through www.Propay.com) . Or, you can send a money order to my mailing address, 1245 S. 128th St. Seattle, Wa. 98168
  • Cancellations: If you do not show up, or call at your scheduled appointment time, you will forfeit your first hour deposit, unless you contact me within 24 hours of your appointment. If you are late, without a reasonable excuse, you will forfeit the late minutes from your first hour of consultation.
  • Rescheduling: You will not lose your first hour deposit of $200 if you need to re-schedule and have contacted me to rearrange your appointment within 24 hours of your originally scheduled appointment
  • Reasons for this policy: Over the years more and more 'potential’ clients have missed their appointments and not notified me that they decided to cancel. As a businessman this obviously affects my income, and as far as professionalism goes, gives you a bad reputation when what you are trying to gain a positive reputation.
  • Always remember that in this crazy, and very competitive music industry there are thousands of artists and bands trying to just get their music listened to, let alone become a star. It takes a lot of work on your part to get noticed. So, being a professional artist who is polite, open-minded, as well as courteous, punctual, and reliable can take you a long way to your dreams of success. I will do my part to set you on the right path, and all I ask from you is the same professionalism in return.  

I look forward to the possibility of working with you.
