Music On Your Own Terms 091 - Tylor Ketchum - Best Of The Worst Kind

This episode I chat to Tylor Ketchum, front man and namesake of the band Tylor and The Train Robbers. Tylor tells us how he got into music, how he approaches songwriting, and how he is pivoting to make a living while being unable to tour. We also learn about the family members in his band, how he met his wife, and find out about Tylor's connection to real life train robber Black Jack Ketchum.

Music On Your Own Terms 089 - Matt Bacon - Bringing Home The Bacon!

Joining me on this episode is PR aficionado Matt Bacon from Dropout Media. Matt talks about his upbringing, his obsessive penchant for music culture and history, and how he launched his career working for bands and labels in the metal scene. He also takes us on a fascinating journey behind the scenes of label deals, working for large European festivals interviewing metal legends, and some tips for those who have aspirations to work in the music business. Matt also talks about his upcoming move to London (which at the time of release has already happened), his mental health, and he also shares an amazing list of books that contributed to his knowledge of marketing.

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 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.
