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.
