Music On Your Own Terms 079 - Simone Dow - A Voyage To The Last Continent

This episode I'm stoked to be talking with Simone Dow, guitarist with the awesome prog band Voyager from Australia. Simone talks about her family's move from Scotland, getting a scholarship for classical guitar, and subsequently getting into metal and never looking back. We hear about life on the road, endorsement deals, and what it means to be signed to a record label in today's DIY world. In addition, Simone graciously shares her experiences with chronic migraines, and how she manages practicing and playing shows, along with getting the word out about the organization Migraine Australia, as well as the condition itself.

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!

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".

Music On Your Own Terms 063 - Storyteller - From The Darkness Into The Light

Hailing mostly from the Dallas, Texas area, Storyteller are an eclectic sounding band in terms of where they fit genre-wise, but they are extremely focused on the message they portray both musically and lyrically. As you'll discover in one of the deepest interviews I have done thus far, the emotional connection that comes out of the band is undeniable. Having witnessed first hand the intensity that the band and in particular Justin the vocalist performs with, the art being produced is incredibly authentic. In this interview, we learn what drives the music, what the guys have been up to during the lock down, and how they are managing the band with a member living in a different state.

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.
