Screw Your Gear
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This week, we examine the role your gear truly plays in your business and in your career. We present some compelling arguments in support of the “less is more” philosophy, look at some out of the box ways to access the tools you need, and we discuss why waiting on the right equipment before you move forward is never the right play.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Don’t forget to</strong> <a href= "http://getpodcast.reviews/id/1340452601"><strong>rate and review the show!</strong></a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Links from the Episode: </strong></p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.boringcompany.com/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">The Boring Company</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.musicproinsurance.com/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Music Pro Insurance</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://mattkass.com/"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Matt Kass</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/user/LukeHollandDrums"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Luke Holland</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/user/mattmcguiredrums"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Matt McGuire</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/user/COOP3RDRUMM3R"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Casey Cooper</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://sir-usa.com/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">SIR</span></a></li> </ul> <p> </p> <p><strong>Episode Guide:</strong></p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Intro [0:00]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Sponsor [0:12]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Episode Overview [0:58]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Boring Company [1:57]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Gear Talk [8:59]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Don’t have the mentality of, “I can’t get started until I have ‘x’” [9:51]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">There is no barrier to creativity anymore [9:59]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Just because they have that, doesn’t mean they need that [12:56]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">The way to have a career doing what you love is to maximize your revenue and minimize your overhead [14:30]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">“I see all you Craigslist commandos out there” [14:47]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">An instrument is just a tool [16:01]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Whatever gear you have should be insured [17:26]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Matt Kass [19:24]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Invest into developing the visual presence of your brand [22:47]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">YouTube Drummers [23:17]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">If people don’t know that you’re great at what you do, and don’t know that you’re out there doing it, how can they hire you?

Why You No Longer Need a Record Label
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">On this episode of The Music Stuff Show we talk about how with the resources available today, a record label shouldn’t be your goal. We discuss how an 18-year-old Steve Lacy produced a track on Kendrick Lamar’s newest album using only his iPhone, how The Chainsmokers created their first hits from their New York City Apartment, and how applying Kevin Kelly’s concept of 1000 true fans can help you make $100,000. Please enjoy this episode of The Music Stuff Show: Why you no longer need a record label.</span></p> <p><strong>Don’t forget to</strong> <a href= "http://getpodcast.reviews/id/1340452601"><strong>rate and review the show!</strong></a></p> <p><strong>Links from the Episode:</strong></p> <p> </p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://kk.org/thetechnium/1000-true-fans/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Kevin Kelly’s 1000 true fans</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.wired.com/2017/04/steve-lacy-iphone-producer/"><span style="font-weight: 400;"> Steve Lacy: 18 year old Kendrick Lamar iPhone producer</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.datpiff.com/Childish-Gambino-The-Great-Gambino-mixtape.241178.html"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">The Childish Gambino Mix-Tape Vance mentioned</span></a> <strong>(Disclaimer: <span style= "text-decoration: underline;">Super Explicit</span> Lyrics)</strong></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlUGRbPLn-4"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">The Chainsmoker’s interview where they mention producing in their apartment</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://tomdupreeiii.com"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Hire Tom to play drums on your record</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://dupeloops.com"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Say hey to our sponsor: Dupeloops</span></a></li> </ul> <p> </p> <p><strong>Episode Guide:</strong></p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Intro [0:00]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Sponsors [0:12]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Overview [0:54]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Thinking ‘bout bluebies [1:35]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Why you don’t need a record label  [2:23]</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">What is a label?
