Sound Advice Banner for Alternate Revenue Streams event. Event details on a purple background all on a green/blue swirling background.

Just because people don’t buy records like they used to, it doesn’t mean there’s no money to be made!

In October, MusicNSW’s professional development series Sound Advice investigates all the ways to earn an income beyond playing live and selling records. Via this expert in-person panel discussion you’ll get the lowdown on merch, NFTs, publishing and other alternative revenue streams available to you as an artist.

The panel will be moderated by Artist Manager Ricky Simandjundtak (ONEFOUR, Becca Hatch) and feature Jen Taunton (The Midnight Choir, Level Two Music), Gaetano La Ianca (Founder, Bottega Made) and Artist Serwah Attafuah.

Registration is FREE but space is limited, and access will be granted on a first come, first served basis.

Snacks will be provided.

Access: Double doors at the front of the building have a wheelchair lift and there is elevator access to every floor. For any other acces enquiries please contact

This event takes place on the unceded land of the Gadigal people. We pay respect to Elders past and present, and extend those respects to the First Nations peoples of NSW and beyond. Always was, always will be.

MusicNSW is supported by Create NSW and APRA AMCOS.
