How to Succeed as a Musician 

With Bishop Allen's Justin Rice

How do you succeed as a musician in the mp3 era, where music is instant and free? How do you make enough money to continue doing what you love? To get by day-to-day?

Justin Rice, a Kingston resident and member of indie-rock band Bishop Allen, leads a step-by-step investigation into the sometimes dark and often funny journey of a working musician—from living in squalor to playing corporate parties to recording vapid jingles.

Setting and props are courtesy of outdated: an antique café in Kingston.
