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 065 - The Mason Adams Project - Hillbilly Hippie Funk

In this impromptu discussion, I talk with The Mason Adams Project, a Dallas based band that fuses a plethora of influences and genres to create a southern tinged, alt rock band with a mandolin....or a hillbilly hippie funk band.....I guess you'll have to listen and make up your own mind! The guys talk about how they got into music, the interesting twists of fate that led them to get together as a band, and how they write the eclectic music that defines them. We also learn that Mason has only played guitar for 5 years, yet has managed to build this project to where it is today, how dedicated of a festival follower he is and also how he infuses music into education as a special education teacher. Sit back, relax, and join me as we head into the MAP jam room!

June 29, 2020

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.
