Music On Your Own Terms 087 - Monica Strut - Social Media Shredder!

This time out we are talking social media strategies and the mindset of your band as a business, with Aussie social media rockstar, Monica Strut! Monica talks about her history from her mum forcing her into piano lessons, wanting to be an actress, all the way to touring with her former band and working for Heavy Magazine as a journalist. We discuss a wide range of subjects that bands need to think about to make music for a living, and most importantly, Monica exclusively shares her secret love of ironing board cover designs!

Rounding out the episode is my brother from another, Alan who gives us an update on his coaching experiences, starting a family, moving to Portugal and a major health event that put him in the hospital for over a month, and required him to basically learn to walk again.

September 14, 2020

Music On Your Own Terms 078 - Hal Eisenberg - A Runaway, Wanted Dead Or Alive

Please welcome Hal Eisenberg to the podcast! Hal contributed drums to James Dand's Empowerment Songs project, including the track "Hero's Journey" that we heard in episode 76, as well as the track at the end of this interview. Not only is Hal a drummer, but we find out about his amazing work in the New York school system as a social worker, having helped hundreds of thousands of kids find their voice, and reach their full potential in the world. Hal talks about growing up, becoming homeless and falling into drugs and alcohol, then turning his life around to become a major force in the education system. We also hear about his near death experience with COVID, and now his battle with cancer, as well as a special message of encouragement from a well known New Jersey singer. This is an incredible chat, and I was extremely inspired after I talked with Hal, I hope you will experience the same insight and invigoration after listening to Hal speak!

Music On Your Own Terms 076 “The Inner Anthem Of James Dand (Slight Return)”

August 31, 2020

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 071 - Dan Clayton/Fret Success - Still Being Himself

We are both guitar nerds, and we both left the UK to live in North America. Dan Clayton is an acoustics engineer based in Calgary, Canada, that also records his own music, mixes others', and is the founder of Fret Success, an online resource for guitar players looking to improve their skills. Dan shares his journey from asking his parents for saxophone lessons and inheriting his dad's guitar instead, opening for some popular touring bands in the UK, and why he moved to Canada. We also have a nerdy gear discussion about guitars, amps, plugins and pedals.

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.
