Episode 5 - Money Talks: Covers (feat. Nicola Thomson & Simon Hirst)

Money Talks is a regular set of episodes dedicated to making money as a musician. Each episode will feature candid interviews and discussions with musicians doing the one thing that seems to elude so many of us: making money from making music.

Today we’re talking about covers gigs. How to get started, how to book gigs and keep booking gigs, how to set your fee and how to turn your passion into a career.

I'm joined by New Zealand artists Nicola Thomson and Simon Hirst to discuss the ins and outs, and highs and lows of making a living as a covers musician.
