Music On Your Own Terms 113 - Darryl Hurs - Indie 101

This episode I'm joined by Indie Week Founder and Director of Market Development Canada for CD Baby, Darryl Hurs! Darryl talks about the upcoming Indie 101 conference that will be happening April 20th-24th, about Indie Week and Screen X Screen, as well as his experience working for CD Baby on their global team. We also hear about how Darryl got into music and some of the amazing experiences he's had while traveling the globe. This upcoming event is definitely a must attend for indie musicians, and is extremely affordable, especially considering the amount of education and networking opportunities available during the conference.

Music On Your Own Terms 108 - Something Called Eden James

Joining me in this interview is Australian-born, NYC-based singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur, Eden James. We hear about his first foray into music, learning drum rudiments in the school marching band, then picking up a guitar and starting to write songs as a young teen. We hear about Eden's journey to the UK, and then winning a visa lottery to live in the US, at the suggestion of his then girlfriend. Eden shares a lot of valuable insight about his experience as an indie artist, licensing his songs to a major label and getting a number 1 hit in Greece, as well as hiring A-list session musicians to record his latest album, and setting up his own record label.

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.

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.
