Music On Your Own Terms 118 - X. Ari - Transforming Pain Into Power

This episode I talk with LA based/Toronto born artist X. Ari, in the run up to her month long mental health festival, Mental Health With X. Ari. We talk about Ari's history in performance, touring in girl bands in her teens, moving to LA and making music a career as well as some great tips surrounding her songwriting process. Ari also shares stories about her experiences with mental health, suffering from comorbid disorders that have led to hospitalization, and continuing to find methods of self care, therapy and medication in order to live a fulfilling life. Ari is now managing those conditions, has adopted the mantra "pain into power", and is using her experiences to become a powerful advocate for mental health, including the upcoming Mental Health Month With X. Ari.

This episode I talk to three members of The McGrath Project, namesake Gary McGrath, Jonathan Moore and Jonathan McNary, a Fort Worth based band that is about to release a concept album influenced by albums such as Pink Floyd's The Wall, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Gary discusses moving to LA to learn studio engineering and becoming a session guitar player, touring with some big names from past decades, and returning to his hometown of Fort Worth to form a new version of the McGrath Project and record new music. We learn from both Jonathan's, about how they got started on their respective instruments, and the amount of dedication that has lead them to pursue a full time career in music.

Music On Your Own Terms Episode 39 - Chase The Comet

Episode 39 features Nika Comet, one half of Chase The Comet, an LA-based rock/metal duo that made a brave jump to move from their home of Moscow, Russia, to follow the American dream of hustle and entrepreneurship to bring their music to the world. Nika talks us through growing up in a theatrical family, being in bands in high school, and working as session musicians. She tells us the challenges of finding band members with the same goals and vision, why being a duo is the best situation right now, and also she shares her experiences with mental health. This interview is a great insight into an upcoming band with great songs, and illustrates the importance of sacrifice and the drive to see your ultimate vision through.

Music On Your Own Terms Episode 32 - Bryan Beller

I recently had the pleasure of talk with bassist Bryan Beller, who talks about his time working for SWR amps, where he learnt some valuable lessons in business management, and why he left after the company was sold to Fender. We also talk about various strategies of how to build a fulfilling career in music, how he overcame having his custom basses stolen, and we talk in depth about the creation process of his stellar new album "Scenes From The Flood".
