Music On Your Own Terms 088 - Bella Bromberg - Should, Can, And Will!

For this episode we journey to a sunny autumn morning in New York, and chat with a young singer songwriter named Bella Bromberg, who at the time of the interview is in her second year at Barnard College. Bella talks about her upbringing in California, including her mother making Bella take piano lessons, her dad exposing her to hip hop and R&B music, as well as the urge to start writing songs at a young age. We learn of the contacts Bella has been making in the industry and the inspiration for a lot of her music.

Music On Your Own Terms 086 - Andrew Plan - The Man With A Plan To Heal You

For this episode I caught up with my friend Andrew Plan who was the first person I met at the CD Baby DIY Musician Conference back in September of 2019. Andrew talks about how his dad's love of music influenced his own, how music called him away from a potential career in medicine, and his experience in various songwriting contests. We also learn about his songwriting methodologies, getting onto playlists with his music, and how he is healing people with his music, both performing in various hospitals, and also with the message in his latest single with collaborator Kristine Wriding.

Music On Your Own Terms 078 - Hal Eisenberg - A Runaway, Wanted Dead Or Alive

Please welcome Hal Eisenberg to the podcast! Hal contributed drums to James Dand's Empowerment Songs project, including the track "Hero's Journey" that we heard in episode 76, as well as the track at the end of this interview. Not only is Hal a drummer, but we find out about his amazing work in the New York school system as a social worker, having helped hundreds of thousands of kids find their voice, and reach their full potential in the world. Hal talks about growing up, becoming homeless and falling into drugs and alcohol, then turning his life around to become a major force in the education system. We also hear about his near death experience with COVID, and now his battle with cancer, as well as a special message of encouragement from a well known New Jersey singer. This is an incredible chat, and I was extremely inspired after I talked with Hal, I hope you will experience the same insight and invigoration after listening to Hal speak!

William hails from New Westminster, a city in the vicinity of Vancouver, British Columbia, and is a jazz and folk bass player and composer, that is set to release his first album in October of this year. William shares how he was exposed to jazz in high school, his history in the local music scene, and a summer he spent in Copenhagen for the sake of his own emotional growth.

Music On Your Own Terms 076 - The Inner Anthem Of James Dand (Slight Return)

Joining me on the podcast once again from episode 8 is none other than my good friend James Dand! We recorded this episode a little while ago, prior to the release of his triple album, which I'm happy to report was released a few days before this episode airs. James gives some really great insight into the making of the album, including working with over twenty contributors, the logistics of legal agreements and the sessions themselves. We also discuss James' release strategy, and dig into the royalty arrangements for various governing bodies around the world. Also, as an exclusive bonus, at the end of the episode, we hear the track "Heroes Journey" that not only I contributed guitar to, but also features Hal Eisenberg on drums, who I had the pleasure of talking to recently, and we will hear from in an upcoming episode!

To go along with the launch of his triple album, James has graciously created an ebook to help you set up and work through all aspects of creating and completing a collaborative project of your own. I also contributed to this resource and I think it contains a great deal of information that will be really useful for artists creating a project while working with various other creatives and business people.

Music On Your Own Terms 069 - Al Gilliom - Piano Music In Dark Spaces

Back in April of this year, I spoke to Olympia, Washington based pianist Al Gillion. During the interview we had a great deal of technical difficulties but Al was gracious enough to re-record his answers so I could produce a full episode and tell his story. During our discussion, we learn that Al heard solo piano music in the NICU as a premature baby, and was inspired to play by his grandmother. We also discover the incredible weight of emotion that fuels Al's moving pieces, and the inspiration behind his most recent album "The Light In Dark Spaces".
