Joining me from Denver, Colorado, is singer-songwriter Carolyn Shulman. We discover how her dad influenced her love of music, how she won a songwriting competition in college, but ended up becoming a social security lawyer in Houston, Texas, until she and her family moved to Colorado, where she decided to become a full time musician. Carolyn also shares what her law degree has taught her to watch out for in the music business, what surprises her most about social media, and what she's learned about the difference between PR and advertising, from working with Ariel Hyatt and Cyber PR!

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 101 - Marketing 101 With J-Mac & J-Mo

Kicking off 2021, we take a deep dive into marketing for artists with my good friends Jonathan McNary and Jonathan Moore, from the McGrath Project, and Fiction Theory. The two Jonathans talk about their background in this subject, how it has impacted their efforts with various musical projects, and what they have learned in the process. Along the way we look at a couple of examples of boosting social media posts, when to pay for advertising and when not to, and also some alternative strategies that don't cost money, but may be a lot more effective.
