The Outback Musician's Survival Guide:
One Guy's Story of Surviving as an Independent Musician

A book by Phil Circle

Here's an excerpt from a recent review:

"Towards the end of the book, Phil says, 'I don’t have some profound message.' In fact, by sharing his humanity and his failings as well as his high points, he has created a profound message. It is often in mere survival that we create greatness, although we ourselves don’t know it at the time. The touch of human grief amidst all of the adrenaline pumping adventure makes this book something of a celebration of what it means to be human."

-Sarah Jane, Beat Media

5 out of 5 Stars
Highly Recommended!
By Eric on May 30, 2018
Format: Kindle Edition
I went to a Chicago show where Phil was playing guitar, singing and reading portions of his book. I ordered a copy of The Outback Musician's Survival Guide the next day and was engaged from beginning to end. The Outback Musician's Survival Guide is a how-to book about living your passion, in Phil's case, music. Phil shares decades of practical knowledge to help the fledgling musician as well as anyone else who seeks to begin the journey or expand his or her presence in the music industry. The book also is a memoir that contains a treasure trove of stories that touched my heart. As a bonus, it has a lot of real Chicago in its pages. Highly recommended!

Honest and entertaining
By Amazon Customer on October 4, 2017
 
When I finished this book, I thought to myself, "You could not make this stuff up." This is brutally honest, and wildly entertaining, look at the ups and downs of scraping out a living on the road as a musician, and the reasons that would compel a person to do that. The author's narrative style varies with the subject matter, and this takes a little getting used to at first. But the stories are so wild it is worth it.
