Music On Your Own Terms 090 - Craig Dodge - Monetizing Your Music For Film, TV, And Video Games

For this episode I sit down for a chat with composer, teacher, and multi instrumentalist Craig Dodge. Craig talks about his work with film, TV, video game music and sound design, getting your tracks on music libraries, teaching in a local college that is affiliated with Berklee school of music, and also his video based course where he teaches you how to build multiple streams of income doing what he does, with the Ignite Your Music Career program. We learn how Craig got into music in the first place, how he figured out how to build the career he has now, and what his ethos about life, and passing his knowledge on to other musicians is all about.

Music On Your Own Terms 082 - Carolyn Sills & Gerard Egan - A Perfect Combo

After playing their song "Bad For You" on episode 67 with David Dennis, I had to get The Carolyn Sills Combo on the podcast for an interview. Namesake Carolyn and her husband Gerard, the guitar player for the band, share their history in music, working for the Santa Cruz Guitar Co., and what it means to be able to live a life dedicated to music. We hear about their life's journey from college, living in New York and touring Europe, to moving to California and forming the current group. I truly enjoyed getting to know Carolyn and Gerard, they impart some really valuable wisdom, and we also nerd out on gear!
