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 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".

Music On Your Own Terms 052 - Anais Azul – Creating A New Normal

Anais Azul is a multi instrumentalist, singer and composer based in both California and Boston, that I met at last year's CD Baby DIY Musician conference. In this episode we talk about what brought Anais's family from their native Peru to the US, going to Boston University to study music and composition, and what projects and communities keep them bi-coastal. We hear about the musical projects that Anais is involved in as well as their solo music, and multifaceted performances that Anais's goal are to be as interactive as possible, with the intent of being collective healing/meditation events as much as they are musical performances. Finally we touch on the current COVID-19 situation, what Anais has done to pivot as a music teacher, and what listeners can do to shift their mindset to improve their positivity.

Music On Your Own Terms 041 - Suzanne Paulinski/The Rockstar Advocate

For Episode 41 I talk to Suzanne Paulinski, a mindset coach that helps music-preneurs with the business side of their music and also helps them understand the importance of mental and physical health. Last summer at the CD Baby conference, I attended Suz's seminar about overcoming overwhelm and was inspired by the achievement of how she was able to build a successful business while only being able to work 2 hours a day due to her battle with Lymes Disease. Suz talks about her history in the music business, virtually burning out at a young age and how that has fueled her passion of bringing the importance of focus to her clients. We talk about the psychology of language and how it plays a vital role in our success, and also she talks about getting the word out to a wider audience with her podcast, the Music-preneur Mindset Podcast. Keep an ear out for Suz's dog Pepper that makes an appearance by snoring in the background!

Music On Your Own Terms Episode 35 - Chris Birkett & Shari Tallon/The Free Spirits

Joining me this episode is award winning producer, guitarist and fellow Brit, Chris Birkett whose album credits have collectively sold over 100 million copies, including Sinead O'Conner's "I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got" featuring the massive Prince cover of "Nothing Compares 2 U". Chris is joined by Shari Tallon, a pianist, flutist, composer, and music educator, who together with Chris form The Free Spirits.

We have a fantastic conversation that covers both Chris and Shari's individual histories, how they met and formed the band and the creation and meaning of their new album 11:11. We also discuss Chris's thoughts on what it means to be a musician and the state of the corporate music industry today, as well as Shari's incredible work with disadvantaged and disabled children that brings the joy of music into their lives, to help tackle some of their day to day challenges.

Most importantly though, we hear about the theremin incident during the recording of John Otway's latest album on the island of Montserrat, and discover the composition of the mysterious "Green Yum"
