King is now writing a series of books titled “Passport to the Music Business” where he breaks down all aspects of the music business in simple, easy to understand laymans terms. King stated “I want anybody to read my book and get a general understanding of the subject matter I’m discussing” so he or she is reading each book based on subject i.e record deals, publishing, marketing etc. His first book is “Passport to the Music Business…… Everything Distribution” it will be available fall 2012- spring 2013.
“I Love the Music Business and I Love exploring what the future and technology has in store for all who participate in this business, I believe it’s going to be greater and more fruitful for those with open and fertile minds”. – Jay King
