$100 K. I thought that would get everyone’s attention. And it’s the first thing I say when I meet with young singer/songwriters and their parents as we start the educational process of moving up from the basic performance skills of singing their own songs and playing guitar or piano to the rarefied air of the art of entertaining. That’s what I do these days as a live music performance coach.

The State Of Music Videos: 2017

Remember the days of MTV playing actual music videos? Maybe this separates a lot of musicians in generation, this age gap when music videos seemed to mean something. Perhaps they didn’t mean anything at all, aside from expensive productions, rented out mansions, and a budget backed single on a massive major label. Aside from recanting the past, things in the music industry have obviously changed. What hasn’t been addressed though is the market for making music videos.

14 Incredible Pieces Of Wisdom From The Art Of Organized Noize Documentary

Yes, I finally sat down to watch this documentary. I know, I’m late. 

First, the film is so damn good, I wish I would have shot it myself. I’m mad QD3 beat me to it. 

Second, the film contains ninety minutes of heavy, mind piercing ammunition and large atomic bombs of knowledge that fire in rapid succession, covering everything from the internal mindsets and attitudes necessary for success to the external situations and factors that rain down failure.
