I'm releasing my debut EP! And I've learnt so much in the process. This episode I'll tell you step by step what you need to do to release your EP. It's not really professional advice, but by sharing my experience, I hope to give you an idea of what's involved and if it's for you. I cover production, finding a distributor, getting tracks mastered, to artwork, artist style, APRA AMCOS, PPCA, to submitting to AMRAP (AirIt) and other ideas. Let me know what you think!

With all the cases coming to light recently, I share my thoughts on the responsibilities of being an Artist, and how are we to perceive their legacy now that we have insight into a scary side of them?

The book mostly looks at why we procrastinate and why it's better to wait than rush in some cases. I highly recommend this book! For most of my life, I've sabotaged my own wishes and dreams because I wasn't aware of how negative my self talk was and how much impact they had on me. I explore what I've learned...
