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 035 “Chris Birkett & Shari Tallon/The Free Spirits”

January 9, 2020

Music On Your Own Terms Episode 35 - Chris Birkett & Shari Tallon/The Free Spirits

Joining me this episode is award winning producer, guitarist and fellow Brit, Chris Birkett whose album credits have collectively sold over 100 million copies, including Sinead O'Conner's "I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got" featuring the massive Prince cover of "Nothing Compares 2 U". Chris is joined by Shari Tallon, a pianist, flutist, composer, and music educator, who together with Chris form The Free Spirits.

We have a fantastic conversation that covers both Chris and Shari's individual histories, how they met and formed the band and the creation and meaning of their new album 11:11. We also discuss Chris's thoughts on what it means to be a musician and the state of the corporate music industry today, as well as Shari's incredible work with disadvantaged and disabled children that brings the joy of music into their lives, to help tackle some of their day to day challenges.

Most importantly though, we hear about the theremin incident during the recording of John Otway's latest album on the island of Montserrat, and discover the composition of the mysterious "Green Yum"

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!
