WOTS Version 147 with Quiet

Today I break down some ideas regarding social media and the best places to focus your energy to expand your music career. Check out what I have to say.  Do you agree or disagree? let me know in the comments of this post!

We have Quiet on the podcast. We sat down with three members of the band Avtar, Aeon, and Eamon in their rehearsal space at the Olympic Foundry. We got nerdy on their latest release, their plans to create and release more music, going on an open mic/networking tour, and more. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

"Last Note" by Quiet off Walk Into The Night

WOTS Version 145 with Erin Rae Murray and Cody Rose

Continuing my investigation on what are best practices for being a successful musician in our current climate of being a musician.  My second tip to advance your career as a musician is to see your music career through an entrepreneurial lens.  Listen to my thoughts on it then let me know if you agree or disagree with my assessments.

This time on the podcast we have Erin Rae Murray and Cody Rose.  We sat down at Grumpy D's Coffee House in Ballard, Erin and Cody told me all about their band Honey Mustard.  We got in depth about the band, we got caught up with what they have accomplished so far and some of the goals of what's next, we talked about what it's like to be a two piece verses a band, they told me about their writing process. We also talked about the every changing and increasing rolls of what it means to be a musician in our time and how it relates to social media. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

Featured music:
"Long Are The Days (Live)" by Honey Mustard off Back Shack #1 (video)
