044 - Ethan/Smudge - Fossette

Is the industry set up wrong and should you steal your sister's guitar lessons? This week I talk with Smudge from Fossette, we discuss the industry, Diet (you know, for singing and that) writing, name changes and finding a new way to focus so you can make better music. You name it and we probably had a quick chat about it. Fossette are a great band and definitely ones to check out, it was an absolute pleasure to chat to Smudge, as I'm sure it will be an absolute pleasure to hear what he has to say!

043 - I Lost Everything...

This is not a drill! You never think it will happen to you... until it does. My hard drive on my mac and my external back both collapsed in on themselve last week, leaving me without any files for my past and future episodes! To say I'm distraught would be an understatement but I am trying to stay positive! I will be back with more epsiodes I just don't know if this is something that will happen next week, or the following week... I've sent my hard drive off to a lab and I'm remaining hopeful that they can retrieve my lost data, but honestly I don't know...

042 - Is it OK to leave right after your set? - Opinion

It's something that has always bugged me and I wanted to try something a little different. Some people hate bands that leave after they play and some people don't mind one way or the other. I wanted to discuss or just give my 2 cents on the subject, throwing my hat into the ring.

I'm sure I will offend at least one person with my view on this but that is definitely not my intention. I have been in this situation many times and so it's something I know I have an opinion on! I really hope you enjoy the episode and for those who feel the opposite to me, I hope maybe you can take away a couple of points and see things fropm the other side. That said, I want to hear your thoughts on the subject too! Tweet me with your thhoughts! @TheMusicPod

041 - Soham De - Solo Artist

Mindset, work ethic and gigging. This week I talk to Soham De about the drive needed to enable yourself to improve your live performance. We talked for a long time about all sorts, but what really struck me was how sure and strong-minded Soham is when it comes to writing and performing music.

He has a busy year ahead of him and I'm excited to see what is waiting around the corner for Soham. I hope you enjoy the episode and get something out of it! I know I did!
