YouTube Live with Michael Palmisano

So last night I had the pleasure of joining Michael Palmisano and his awesome followers
(as well is some Enrique and Smash Mouth fans) on his Live YouTube stream!

We had a lot of good laughs, we talked about gear, about Enrique running around on stage and how Steve Harwell LOVES loud rock guitars on stage (I do too ;))
We also chatted about my new FREE Master Class for making money from music πŸ™‚

If you have some time, go check it out.
You know how to reach me if ya need me (well…mainly Insta haha).

Why Musicians Fail

Why DO awesome and talented musicians fail???

In the last video I posted, I mentioned 5 habits that helped me gain momentum in my career.

In fact, I DID have a lot of issues with some these scenarios…so I’m trying to help you guys avoid them πŸ™‚

In this video, we discuss Band Agreements, Mixing Art and Business (this is a tough one) and also putting in the work
in order to achieve success in the Music Business.

I hope you enjoy the video and get some good knowledge from it.

Submithub.com YouTube Review

Let me be clear, I am NOT sponsored in ANY way by Submithub.com.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, what you’ll see in this video is my honest review of a product I sincerely think to be a HUGE asset
to artists world wide.

Submithub is a service through which you can submit your music to all these different curators around the world and the internet.
* Think Spotify Playlists with hundreds of thousands of listeners.
* Think YouTube channels with 28 million subscribers.
* Even music bloggers, radio stations (probably indie) and even labels!
But, it is so much more than just that.

I take you through my whole process of submitting, getting denied (with feedback) , getting approved and everything that goes with it!

I will be having a Live Instagram Stream with Jason Grishkoff (Founder of Submithub.com) for all your Q&A needs on 4.18.20 on my Instagram.
Those attending will get a passcode for FREE credits!!!

So, please enjoy the vid.

So, in this video, I give you a quick and useful breakdown on how to get endorsements.
Everything you need to know about who to ask for them, what they might want in return and how much gear to ask for.

Let me just give a quick shoutout to Randy Fuchs from Artist Relations.
He got me my first official endorsement with Digitech since I was using their Whammy IV at the time!

Oh…the memories πŸ™‚
