Music On Your Own Terms 090 - Craig Dodge - Monetizing Your Music For Film, TV, And Video Games

For this episode I sit down for a chat with composer, teacher, and multi instrumentalist Craig Dodge. 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 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.

Music On Your Own Terms 060 - Caitlin Claessens - Super Simple Subway Stories

To celebrate the 60th episode of the podcast, I had the pleasure of talking with Caitlin Claessens, who is the face of Caitie's classroom along with her co-host Tobee, on the popular YouTube channel Super Simple Play, part of Skyship Entertainment's Super Simple Songs network, whose main channel has over 23M subscribers. Caitie talks about her journey from growing up in Ontario and going to university for film production, moving to NYC and busking on the subway, to finding session vocal jobs that ended up being featured in Superbowl Commercials. We find out why she ended up returning to Canada and went on to build a successful children's educational entertainment business and subsequently got an opportunity with Skyship to become a presenter and produce her own series.
