Welcome you back to my podcast, Success Beyond The Score. Just before I kick off, I want to let you know I have a new gift just for you. It’s called ‘10 Reasons Why They Will Pay You Before Gig Day!’
This is a snappy list of 10 things which will help you to understand what music promoters are checking to decide if they will pay you in advance. Knowing these things will help you to level up your game and put things in place to make it possible for you get paid before you hit the stage!
Today, you might be familiar with those gossip magazines covers that announce things like "the royal family, caught grocery shopping" or "check this picture of a famous musician air drying their laundry, you won't believe it!". These stem from the ideal of the celebrity, of that notion that famous people live a life of applause, lights, and luxury, and have nothing to do with the mundane.
Is that really how it is? In this episode,
I talk with
• Tony Bean - CEO and founder of 5AM Records. International Artiste Developer, Songwriter and Record Producer
• Abigail Kelly - an award winning international operatic soprano & Ambassador for the National Touring Opera
• Anna Brooks – international touring saxophonist, recording artiste, arranger and director
• Dan Whitehouse – acclaimed composer and songwriter currently signed with Reveal Records •
and Ruby Turner MBE -singer-songwriter, US R&B number 1 chart hit and actress, they will give you their take on Glitz, glamour and the Monday morning musician. The things the Magazines and PR people don't want us to talk about. Let's get right into it.
This interview was recorded through Zoom due to COVID-19 lockdown still easing, so you might perceive a slight change of audio quality between the introduction and the show. But don't worry because the content is stella!
