Music On Your Own Terms 124 - Evgen Tsibulin/Pleximents - Escaping The Maze

Joining me this episode, from Siberia, is Pleximents mastermind, Evgen Tsibulin, a multi-instrumentalist, who used to tour in a death metal band, and whose current day job is as a guitar player for an orchestra. We discover what prompted Evgen to create the Pleximent's album The Maze Within, which is effectively a prog-metal symphony, as well as the meaning behind the track names, lyrics, and concept as a whole. Evgen also talks about his old band Dehydrated, how he got the guitar tones on the albums he recorded with them, and his experience touring with Decapitated.

Music On Your Own Terms 115 “Juha Ruokangas/Ruokangas Guitars - What If?”

Music On Your Own Terms 115 “Juha Ruokangas/Ruokangas Guitars - What If?”

April 13, 2021

Music On Your Own Terms 115 - Juha Ruokangas/Ruokangas Guitars - What If?

It is with great pleasure and gratitude that I present my conversation with Mr. Juha Ruokangas, of Ruokangas Guitars, Finnish luthier, innovator and life coach! Regular listeners will remember my episode with Mika Tyyskä (Mr Fastfinger) all the way back in episode 9, who not only play's Juha's instruments, is a good friend, but also created a film about the making of a Mr Fastfinger signature guitar (with Sensai's help of course). Juha shares his journey from discovering Iron Maiden and Jimmy Page, learning to both play guitar and dismantling his very first instrument, all the way to finding his calling as a luthier from a very helpful lady at the unemployment office. We hear how Juha has continued to push innovations from being at the forefront of early websites and guitar customization apps, shunning the traditional "tone woods" in favor of locally sourced materials that inspire the player to create, as well as the Valvebucker, a tube driven guitar pickup that resembles early tube microphones, resulting in a much larger frequency range by amplifying the guitar signal at its source. Finally Juha discusses his weekly Youtube livestream where he shares his thoughts on life, mindset, and mental health, from his perspective, growing up in a relatively young country whose older generations are still affected by the trauma of devastating wars during the early 1900s, as well as the long dark winters and social pressure of not sharing your feelings. This is one of the longest episodes I have released, but is truly one of the most fascinating and enjoyable, and I am truly grateful that Juha was able to share so many valuable and insightful experiences.

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.

Craig talks about his work with film, TV, video game music and sound design, getting your tracks on music libraries, teaching in a local college that is affiliated with Berklee school of music, and also his video based course where he teaches you how to build multiple streams of income doing what he does, with the Ignite Your Music Career program. We learn how Craig got into music in the first place, how he figured out how to build the career he has now, and what his ethos about life, and passing his knowledge on to other musicians is all about.

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".
