This webinar focuses on the following areas of touring in Japan; booking, networking, preparation and promotion.
Since the Japanese music scene is quite different from music scenes in western countries, it's essential to take a different approach to marketing one's image and music to Japanese music fans.
Japan is a unique market, and musicians must approach it as such if they want to be successful.
Founder of Shalestone Music, a Japan-based music agency representing both Japanese and non-Japanese musicians, Duane has a long history of 30 years in the music business, with 17 of those years in Japan. His company has booked performances and tours for hundreds of musicians over the years, both Japanese and non-Japanese, which has allowed him to gain a better understanding of how to make the most out of a performance in front of Japanese audiences.
Having written a book on the subject in 2014, he has continued to expand on that knowledge and is preparing for his next project.
