Music On Your Own Terms 102 - Marios Politis - This Is His Story

In this episode of the podcast I talk to Athens based singer and guitarist Marios Politis, who just recently released his debut solo album after many years playing in various bands, spanning a multitude of genres. Marios discusses his journey from starting to write songs as a young teenager, to the present day, overcoming his feelings of not being good enough, and releasing what is an amazing sounding, and well written album. I hope you enjoy this introduction to Marios, and go check out the whole album as well.

Music On Your Own Terms 101 - Marketing 101 With J-Mac & J-Mo

Kicking off 2021, we take a deep dive into marketing for artists with my good friends Jonathan McNary and Jonathan Moore, from the McGrath Project, and Fiction Theory. The two Jonathans talk about their background in this subject, how it has impacted their efforts with various musical projects, and what they have learned in the process. Along the way we look at a couple of examples of boosting social media posts, when to pay for advertising and when not to, and also some alternative strategies that don't cost money, but may be a lot more effective.

Music On Your Own Terms 099 - Dave Swillum 3 - Waking Up In Maine

Joining me for the 99th episode of the podcast, is my good friend Dave Swillum from The Waking Up From Work Podcast. Last time I had Dave on the podcast was episode 46 and prior to that was just after we first met in episode 14. Both those episodes were joint efforts, so this time we decided to create unique episodes, and you can hear Dave's interview with me on episode 87 of his podcast, recorded on the same day. In this interview, Dave updates us on what he's been doing recently, including the amazing news that he has purchased a property near Portland, Maine, that he is renovating into a full service studio with onsite living quarters for musicians to rent out. We also learn about how he's been adapting his business to Covid, what the future holds for the podcast, and what he's been up to with his band Broadwing.

Music On Your Own Terms 093 - Andy & James/Black Crown Initiate - Booty Shorts & Existential Crises

This go around features one of my favorite bands to come out in the last 10 years, Black Crown Initiate. Guitarist Andy Thomas and Vocalist James Dorton talk about the very real, and very emotionally taxing situation of creating their new album, dealing with not being able to tour because of the Covid situation, and what that means for the band, and their mental health. We learn about how the guys got into music, what other projects they are working on, and their thoughts on how AI and social media are negatively affecting society.

Music On Your Own Terms Episode 32 - Bryan Beller

I recently had the pleasure of talk with bassist Bryan Beller, who talks about his time working for SWR amps, where he learnt some valuable lessons in business management, and why he left after the company was sold to Fender. We also talk about various strategies of how to build a fulfilling career in music, how he overcame having his custom basses stolen, and we talk in depth about the creation process of his stellar new album "Scenes From The Flood".
