This is a track I co-wrote with (Louis Yoelin, GLNNA & Stefan Litrownik) that ended up doing amazing in Europe. We had it on multiple formats and even a commercial (Orange Cel Phone Company – It’s the T Mobile of Europe 😉 )
In this video you’ll find a quick tutorial as well as some inside info about the track (a hidden solo) and also a jam track in the YouTube description.
In this weeks’ video I talk about buying microphones. I go over the different types, Audio signal chain basics, Mic sensitivity, frequency responses, mic’ing techniques and on and on and on. I hope you enjoy it and it helps you…maybe even saves you some money 🙂
Be safe and healthy and I’ll see you on the road sometime soon (fingers crossed).
I wrote this track a while ago and it ended up on “Dancing With The Stars”. In this video I run you through how its played, how I produced it and I even include the track link for you to jam over if you feel like that’s something you’d like to do 🙂
Hope you enjoy it. Let me know if you’d like more or less of these…they’re fun to make 🙂
In this video I cover my favorite way to make music for a living, being a hired gun. I give you the differences between being an artist, hired gun & session player…with specific instructions on how to become a hired gun 🙂 I hope it helps some of you decide what path is right for you.
I also bring up stories of how I got the Smash Mouth gig and the Enrique gig as examples of what works and what doesn’t when you’re in the audition process.
Annnnnd…we’re back! Last week I took a break out of respect for the #BlackLivesMatter message and the protests. I asked my followers and viewers to take a moment and instead of watching a new video by me, educate themselves, as I was trying to do, in the matters brought up by the death of George Floyd (RIP).
But now, we’re back in business! Helping the next generation of musicians make the right choices so they can be…my competition haha.
In this is video I finally talk, in depth, about Band Agreements. I even share this example with you from my past. It’s a free PDF of my band agreement from back in the day with an awesome artists called “Shane” (not me). Me and a few other amazing writers co-wrote 17 songs for Shane’s album, got management, signed the deal… and then ended up nowhere…unfortunately.
But as I mentioned in the video, that…the eventual breaking up of that band/project was also discussed in the agreement, as you can see if you go through it. But, I’m warning you…it’s LONG! The contract, not the video 🙂 Yours doesn’t have to be that long.
Oh…also…amazing bloopers!!!! haha
Anyway, I hope you learn some good stuff from this one. If you wanna support and want some good knowledge as soon as it comes out Like the vid and Subscribe to the channel. Please comment on the video and let me know how I can help you become a better artist and musician.
We’ve got a private Smash Mouth event next month (7/2020). I can’t wait to see everyone and play live again!!!!!
