Music On Your Own Terms 066 “Just The Tip 2 - How Should You Use Your Platform?”

July 17, 2020

Music On Your Own Terms 066 - Just The Tip 2 - How Should You Use Your Platform?

It's been a while since I released the first "Just The Tip" episode. If you recall, it's where I pose a question to the music community to find out what their perspective is on a particular topic. This time out I decided to find out what former guests thought about using their platform to voice various points of view to possibly influence fans' opinions.

The specific wording of what I asked was this:

We have often heard the opinion of bands such as U2 and Roger Waters, being too vocal about political and social issues, sometimes to the detriment of the music. That being said, in today's climate of social injustice and political upheaval, how important is it to you to use your platform as an artist/business owner/podcaster etc, to influence people's opinion on issues? Are you concerned about losing fans/customers on less important issues, and where do you draw the line in terms of which issues you are willing to risk your business over?

This episode features responses from Elise Besler, Amie Chatterley, Anais Azul, Caleb Coonrod, Scott "Scottocaster" Harnish, and finally my good friend Latoya Cooper, the Songstress.

This is the first installment of a new feature called "Just The Tip" where I pose a question to the musicians community including past guests, to hear their perspective on a particular subject. Given the current situation with COVID19 I decided to ask the question "What effect has the corona virus had on you as a musician, and what steps and outside of the box thinking have you utilized to make up for lost revenue, and make full use of the downtime that you are currently experiencing? Let me know your thoughts on this episode, and continue the conversation on social media!

Music On Your Own Terms 023 “Latoya Cooper, The Songstress!”

Music On Your Own Terms 023 “Latoya Cooper, The Songstress!”

October 14, 2019

Music On Your Own Terms Episode 23 - Latoya Cooper, The Songstress!

After meeting at the CD Baby DIY musician conference in Austin recently and hearing how great her voice is, I just had to get Latoya on the podcast. Not only is her music eclectic stylistically, which is right up my alley, but she just happens to run Music Meets the Boardroom, an organization that provides training for musicians and other creatives, helping them gain skills to manage the business side of their music career. As well as sitting down together to talk about music and business, Latoya graciously shares her struggles with depression, her journey from singing as a child, gaining four (yes 4) degrees including an MBA, feeling unfulfilled in her otherwise successful data analysis career, to now gearing up to pursue music full time and becoming an advocate for legislation for musicians' rights in association with the Recording Academy/Grammys. Phew! This one's a doozie!
