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.

Music On Your Own Terms 054 - There Are Those That Call Him Tim Chimes!

Joining me this episode is Mr Tim Chimes, bassist extraordinaire, recording guru and all round audio sage. We have a long overdue chat about where Tim got his passion for music, prog and recording, how he met our mutual bestie Bruce, and what projects he's currently working on. We delve into his job as a tech support engineer for an audio technology company, his advice for musicians stuck at home that want to get a recording set up going, and we also explore some of Tim's high and low points of the last couple of decades. Stay 'till the end and you will be treated to some tasty prog goodness in the form a new Strigiforms song that Tim has bestowed upon us!

Music On Your Own Terms 052 - Anais Azul – Creating A New Normal

Anais Azul is a multi instrumentalist, singer and composer based in both California and Boston, that I met at last year's CD Baby DIY Musician conference. In this episode we talk about what brought Anais's family from their native Peru to the US, going to Boston University to study music and composition, and what projects and communities keep them bi-coastal. We hear about the musical projects that Anais is involved in as well as their solo music, and multifaceted performances that Anais's goal are to be as interactive as possible, with the intent of being collective healing/meditation events as much as they are musical performances. Finally we touch on the current COVID-19 situation, what Anais has done to pivot as a music teacher, and what listeners can do to shift their mindset to improve their positivity.
