Welcome to independent IQ
I’m Andrew Middleton, creator of independent IQ. If you’re an independent musician trying to make a living from your music then you, my friend, have come to the right place.
independent IQ was created for one purpose: to present the best business tools and resources to empower independent musicians to leverage new technologies to make a living.
To this end we are building a large database of tools/websites/resources for musicians
Please take a look around and:
- If you notice that a category of tools/websites/etc. was not mentioned, please leave a comment and I’ll work on adding it asap
- If you have an opinion (good or bad) regarding a particular tool, please comment and tell me what you love/hate about it
- If you have had experience with any of the tools mentioned, please vote in the poll at the end of each of these pages*
- Sign up for the newsletter so I can keep you informed of powerful new tools and services to help you build your career!
*Polls will be updated every January, at which time I will tally the results, publish a summary, and create a new poll, adding new contenders to the poll, and the process will begin again.
