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 068 “Joe Messina – Politics, Porpoises, and Phallic Humor”

July 27, 2020

Music On Your Own Terms 068 - Joe Messina – Politics, Porpoises, and Phallic Humor

In this episode, we learn about the history of Boston based guitarist, comedian, podcaster, activist and teacher, Joe Messina. From growing up in a musical family and not wanting to follow the family business, to discovering comedy and wanting to become an aspiring writer, he was then diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Despite almost quitting music altogether, Joe found himself embracing music once again, teaches guitar and other instruments, and is about to release his new album Rageonomics. Joe also hosts a podcast that aims to provide a roadmap for those who feel frustrated with the slow and ineffective voting system, and want to do more in the way of direct action outside of sharing posts and signing petitions.

Music On Your Own Terms 064 “Isbjörg - Pianos, Prog And Hiding Toes”

Music On Your Own Terms 064 - Isbjörg - Pianos, Prog And Hiding Toes

I recently stumbled upon a cover video of a song by the amazing Australian band Toehider. Being floored by the musicianship of the guys playing the song, I had to check their band out, and was immediately hooked on their sound. Isbjörg are a piano driven prog band, based in Aarhus, Denmark, and the more I listen to their music, the more I feel I am going to become a superfan. The guys discuss the history of the band, how they write and talk about some innovative ways in which they have gained fans and won a spot playing a major Danish festival. We also hear about the culture of Denmark's live scene, how they overcame losing pivotal members of the band, and what the future holds once the COVID situation is over.

Music On Your Own Terms 057 - Scott "Scottocaster" Harnish - The Vocal Warrior's Dr Love

This time out I talk to Scott Harnish, a music teacher, multi-instrumentalist, producer/engineer and Gene Simmons impersonator, based in Nova Scotia, Canada, that also happens to be married to Elise Besler, who I talked to in episode 42. We discuss Scott's new EP, his band Fluid, and the bands that inspire him. We also hear that on one of the recent Kiss Kruises, Scott happened to meet previous guest Nikki Sinn that we heard from all the way back in episode 2 with Tester. As well as this, we discover how he and Elise met through being mutual fans of a Canadian blues-rock band Wide Mouth Mason. This is all of course interspersed with us waxing philosophical about 80s hair metal!

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.

April 10, 2020

Music On Your Own Terms 047 - George Bletsas/Hypnotic Nausea

Hypnotic Nausea is a hard rock band from Athens, Greece, that has prog and art-rock leanings, heavily inspired by both Tool and grandiose concept albums from the 70s. In this chat I talk to singer and guitarist George Bletsas about the band's beginnings, their influences and sound, along with how they decide on what concepts to work on and how they compose the music. We discover the deeper meaning to their albums "Hypnosis" and their newest release "The Death of All Religions" and see what effect the current corona virus situation has had on the band writing new material.
