Music On Your Own Terms 125 - Martin Atkins - The Secret To Success Is Unneutered Zombie Kittens

It is with great pleasure that I present my interview with the one and only Martin Atkins, drummer for Public Image Limited, Killing Joke, Ministry, his own band Pigface, entrepreneur, college lecturer, author, and international speaker. Martin talks about his journey, from his dad getting him a drum kit and setting him up with gigs, the early punk scene and joining PIL, to noticing the mismanagement of the bands, he was in and turning their finances around through merch. We learn about how Martin got into teaching students through his experiences with touring and the music business, writing books based on those classes, how that led to talking at music festivals, and the impetus of turning the collections of memorabilia from the past 40 plus years into a museum. We also find out how Ivar Bjornson, guitarist for the Norwegian band Enslaved, taught Martin the importance of saying YES, to everything.

Music On Your Own Terms 107 - Steven Volpp and Dweezil Zappa - A Rewarding Conversation

Joining me this episode is Acme Marketing CEO, Steven Volpp, and the legendary Dweezil Zappa, to talk about their new venture Reward Music. Reward is a full service platform that gives artists all the tools they need to host their music, media, website, and everything else required to connect with fans in order to make a living from their art, without having to give everything away on social media and streaming platforms. Steve starts us off talking about the platform, his history in the music business, including launching his patented Radial drum system with Peavey, which led to working with Dweezil on his Wiggy amp. He also talks about the development of the platform that Reward now runs on, including a number of other businesses that use it. Dweezil joins us about halfway through to talk about the challenges that artists face today especially during a pandemic, and how the platform will benefit anyone who wants to make a living from something creative, even outside music.

Music On Your Own Terms 097 - Ed Wynne - Malcolm Segments, Desmond Wisps & Ozric Tentacles

This episode I am ecstatic to be speaking with the absolute legend that is Mr Ed Wynne from The Ozric Tentacles, a band I have been following for over 20 years. Ed discusses his background, including his artistic upbringing with his dad being famous sculptor Sir David Wynne, being personally encouraged by George Harrison to play guitar, and his experimentation with his friend's Moog synthesizer. We discuss the new Ozrics album, what prompted him to record a solo album, his work with Jordan Rudess, and what it means to be able to tour and play music with his family. We also hear how Ed's synesthesia is helpful with mixing music, and finally he gives some great advice for musicians looking to make a career from music.

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.
