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).
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!!!
Listen, I was just as surprised as you to hear that my album “Ambient Dreams” is ACTUALLY classified as “Instrumental Hip Hop” genre. Crazy right? But, hey…call it what you want. As long as you’re enjoying it…that’s why I put it out there 😀
What’s up my locked in friends? 🙂 I hope you’re all healthy and using this time to catch up on the important things, like Tiger King 😛
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.
What’s up guys? 🙂 I hope everyone is healthy and being safe. This virus has taken too many lives already, let’s not let it take any more!
Onto a different, more positive topic. As you can see up there, my second video is up and running. Thanks to my friend Orlin Nikolov for the awesome shot on the Enrique Iglesias C Stage in Sofia, Bulgaria.
This one is a little bit of a mind opener into my life and what it takes to be one of the, as my friend Nomad likes to say, “Career Musicians“. Sure, we have a blast and get to experience a lot of very cool stuff, but there’s a lot more to it. This is a short video that I hope you’ll enjoy 🙂
If you have any questions or comments, please go ahead and let me know on the video page, in the comments section preferably 🙂 And of course, I’d love to have you Like the vid and Subscribe to the channel if it suits you. It definitely helps me 🙂
As with my other videos, if you actually go to the YouTube Page of this video, there’s a breakdown of it with a timeline/subject list.
Thank you Stay safe
P.S. In case you missed it. I made a little tutorial for a “Smash Mouth” guitar solo. Check it out 🙂
Hey…Corona, ya know? Well, COVID-19 or not, I’ve decided to start sharing some experience tips from the music biz & touring world on the wonderful platform we all know and love – YouTube!
This is the first video of many (thx @Revoldork for the awesome shot on stage) In it I give 5 tips, things I WISH I knew before I started my current career. I really hope it helps out a lot of musicians out there and I hope you all Comment, Like & Subscribe.
PLEASE…let me know what YOU want me to talk about or make vids about! I can’t wait to hear what you guys have in store for me.
One of the main dudes we clicked with RIGHT away was my new friend Dan Mcguinness (Lead singer and guitarist for CCR). The dude is H.I.L.A.R.I.O.U.S!!! 😀
Anyway, when he asked me to be on his podcast (which was really us just chatting and having fun), I said HELL YEAH! 🙂
So, here is our conversation about: * My weekend in Texas * Being a Carnivore * Smash Mouth (and it’s awesome members) * Enrique Iglesias (and his awesome band) * What your job really is in big productions like Enrique Iglesias and Smash Mouth. * What do you do in Brazil & Uruguay when the airlines lose your luggage etc etc etc.
