Music On Your Own Terms 088 - Bella Bromberg - Should, Can, And Will!

For this episode we journey to a sunny autumn morning in New York, and chat with a young singer songwriter named Bella Bromberg, who at the time of the interview is in her second year at Barnard College. Bella talks about her upbringing in California, including her mother making Bella take piano lessons, her dad exposing her to hip hop and R&B music, as well as the urge to start writing songs at a young age. We learn of the contacts Bella has been making in the industry and the inspiration for a lot of her music.

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 071 - Dan Clayton/Fret Success - Still Being Himself

We are both guitar nerds, and we both left the UK to live in North America. Dan Clayton is an acoustics engineer based in Calgary, Canada, that also records his own music, mixes others', and is the founder of Fret Success, an online resource for guitar players looking to improve their skills. Dan shares his journey from asking his parents for saxophone lessons and inheriting his dad's guitar instead, opening for some popular touring bands in the UK, and why he moved to Canada. We also have a nerdy gear discussion about guitars, amps, plugins and pedals.

Music On Your Own Terms 068 “Joe Messina – Politics, Porpoises, and Phallic Humor”

Music On Your Own Terms 068 “Joe Messina – Politics, Porpoises, and Phallic Humor”

July 27, 2020

Music On Your Own Terms 068 - Joe Messina – Politics, Porpoises, and Phallic Humor

In this episode, we learn about the history of Boston based guitarist, comedian, podcaster, activist and teacher, Joe Messina. From growing up in a musical family and not wanting to follow the family business, to discovering comedy and wanting to become an aspiring writer, he was then diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Despite almost quitting music altogether, Joe found himself embracing music once again, teaches guitar and other instruments, and is about to release his new album Rageonomics. Joe also hosts a podcast that aims to provide a roadmap for those who feel frustrated with the slow and ineffective voting system, and want to do more in the way of direct action outside of sharing posts and signing petitions.

 

If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants. - Isaac Newton

Music On Your Own Terms 064 “Isbjörg - Pianos, Prog And Hiding Toes”

July 6, 2020

Music On Your Own Terms 064 - Isbjörg - Pianos, Prog And Hiding Toes

I recently stumbled upon a cover video of a song by the amazing Australian band Toehider. Being floored by the musicianship of the guys playing the song, I had to check their band out, and was immediately hooked on their sound. Isbjörg are a piano driven prog band, based in Aarhus, Denmark, and the more I listen to their music, the more I feel I am going to become a superfan. The guys discuss the history of the band, how they write and talk about some innovative ways in which they have gained fans and won a spot playing a major Danish festival. We also hear about the culture of Denmark's live scene, how they overcame losing pivotal members of the band, and what the future holds once the COVID situation is over.

Music On Your Own Terms 063 “Storyteller - From The Darkness Into The Light”

June 29, 2020

Music On Your Own Terms 063 - Storyteller - From The Darkness Into The Light

Hailing mostly from the Dallas, Texas area, Storyteller are an eclectic sounding band in terms of where they fit genre-wise, but they are extremely focused on the message they portray both musically and lyrically. As you'll discover in one of the deepest interviews I have done thus far, the emotional connection that comes out of the band is undeniable. Having witnessed first hand the intensity that the band and in particular Justin the vocalist performs with, the art being produced is incredibly authentic. In this interview, we learn what drives the music, what the guys have been up to during the lock down, and how they are managing the band with a member living in a different state.
