Herstand’s music business advice blog, Ari’s Take, was nominated by the LA Weekly as the best music blog in Los Angeles and has become a go-to resource for DIY musicians worldwide.

He will be releasing the preeminent book on the new music industry entitled, How To Make it In The New Music Business (Norton/Liveright Publishing), December 2016.
