Music On Your Own Terms 125 - Martin Atkins - The Secret To Success Is Unneutered Zombie Kittens

It is with great pleasure that I present my interview with the one and only Martin Atkins, drummer for Public Image Limited, Killing Joke, Ministry, his own band Pigface, entrepreneur, college lecturer, author, and international speaker. Martin talks about his journey, from his dad getting him a drum kit and setting him up with gigs, the early punk scene and joining PIL, to noticing the mismanagement of the bands, he was in and turning their finances around through merch. We learn about how Martin got into teaching students through his experiences with touring and the music business, writing books based on those classes, how that led to talking at music festivals, and the impetus of turning the collections of memorabilia from the past 40 plus years into a museum. We also find out how Ivar Bjornson, guitarist for the Norwegian band Enslaved, taught Martin the importance of saying YES, to everything.

Music On Your Own Terms 122 - Erik Cabral - Drumming Up Podcasting Empire

Erik is a serial entrepreneur that has created PodMax, On Air Brands, and the Mindado Investment Group, after a successful yet unfulfilling period working in corporate America. Erik shares the journey he took to reprogram his industrial mind into that of an entrepreneur, that creates wealth and invests his time rather than spending it. We also learn how he got into playing music, ending up with the drums, and starting a band that was treated as a business to some degree of success, until family life dictated a change of pace. Erik also shares some really fantastic anecdotes and advice for any type of creative, a free course that will help you clarify the message you are marketing to potential followers, and finally offers a chance to collaborate and help create new theme music for Pod Max itself.

Music On Your Own Terms 107 - Steven Volpp and Dweezil Zappa - A Rewarding Conversation

Joining me this episode is Acme Marketing CEO, Steven Volpp, and the legendary Dweezil Zappa, to talk about their new venture Reward Music. Reward is a full service platform that gives artists all the tools they need to host their music, media, website, and everything else required to connect with fans in order to make a living from their art, without having to give everything away on social media and streaming platforms. Steve starts us off talking about the platform, his history in the music business, including launching his patented Radial drum system with Peavey, which led to working with Dweezil on his Wiggy amp. He also talks about the development of the platform that Reward now runs on, including a number of other businesses that use it. Dweezil joins us about halfway through to talk about the challenges that artists face today especially during a pandemic, and how the platform will benefit anyone who wants to make a living from something creative, even outside music.

Music On Your Own Terms 105 - Stranger Than Fiction Theory

This episode I talk to Jonathan McNary, Jonathan Moore, and McCaul Ragland, about their baby, Fiction Theory. We met the two Jonathans back in episode 74 with Gary McGrath, and also in episode 101, which itself was spawned out of this very interview. McCaul shares how he got into music and his perspective on what it means to be an artist, whether that be musical or visual. We also learn how the guys have been writing songs, a little about the recording process and how they share responsibilities in the marketing of the band.

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 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!
