FMM078 - Tenerfuse: Backing Yourself To Go All In

9/23/2020
I’m using the Finish More Music Podcast once again to highlight some of the extraordinary members that have come out of the FMM community, and kicking us off is none other than Chris Forsyth, AKA, Tenerfuse! Chris went from DJing on lineups with his idols to being stuck in a losing battle with addiction, and himself. But after seeking help, turning it around and discovering a new lease of life, he’s now made the plunge to quit his day job and pursue making music full-time. And now...

FMM077 - Stealing like an artist or like a thief?

9/21/2020
Whenever we try to create something original, to bring something new to the table, we put ourselves out there with all of our blood, sweat and tears laid bare. It’s challenging, it can be uncomfortable, but it’s also one of the most rewarding things that we as human beings can ever experience. And part of the creative process is about absorbing and learning from those who came before us, and those around us, as artists throughout history have always done. But when does being influenced by...

FMM076 - What happens when you get left behind?

9/14/2020
In any creative field, one thing that everybody deals with at some point or another is seeing other people succeed while you stay where you are. Maybe you started making music at the same time as somebody else, or maybe they started after you, and they’re suddenly achieving the things that you’ve not been able to. Seeing others accelerate further than you can easily lead to feelings of envy, jealousy, and resentment - but these are the exact kind of feelings that continue to hold you back,...

FMM075 - Don't Wait for Motivation...Create It

9/7/2020
When it comes to getting down to writing music, I see a lot of people making the same mistakes. And one of the biggest of them all is waiting around for motivation to come to you. “I’ll get started tomorrow”, “I’m not feeling it today”. We’re all guilty of saying these sorts of things. But motivation isn't something that magically appears and aligns perfectly with our calendar, it's something we need to generate, to build, to create on demand. And the ability to do this is vital to...

FMM074 - Failing to Succeed

8/31/2020
When we try new things, we imagine new ideas. And when we imagine new ideas, we try to make them a reality. And whenever we do that, failure is inevitable. If we’re going to succeed at anything that’s important to us, failure will be an inherent ingredient to that success. Yet so many people are terrified of making mistakes, of failing to get it right, of trying something new, of trying to write a piece of music. But if you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always...

FMM073 - Infinite Creativity

8/24/2020
As much as we’d all like to think so, you can’t win at music. You can’t win at art. And you can’t win at life. It just doesn’t work like that, so why do so many of us treat our music like it does? Treating every single track, label submission, or particular goal like it's the be-all and end-all of the world - "I have to win this" - will only lead to the kind of relentless pressure which stifles and crushes creativity. Similarly, looking sideways and perceiving the success of others as...

FMM072 - Imposter Syndrome: The Poison and the Antidote

8/17/2020
Imposter syndrome - it’s not just a case of self-doubt. It's that persistent, nagging feeling of being a fraud, or feeling like you don't belong, which makes you devalue your worth and undermines the things that you’ve achieved and what you’re capable of. And despite all the evidence that’s there for you to dig up against it, it won't go away. It doesn't matter where you are on your journey, it’s something which happens to the very best of us, and it floors creatives on a daily...

FMM071 - Finding Your Own Sound

8/10/2020
Nobody wants to be vanilla, boring, same old, same old, or to be a second version of somebody else. We all want all our music to have a piece of ourselves in it, to be unique, and to be original in some way. While originality is something that we all strive towards as artists, it’s important to realise that it’s also something that cannot, and should not, be forced. If you try to force a sound, then it can’t be authentic, and it can’t be you. With examples direct from our FMM community...

FMM070 - What all labels must do for you or they suck!

8/3/2020
I’ve noticed a growing trend popping up in many aspects of life, and that’s ENTITLEMENT. “I DESERVE this”, “you MUST give me that”. When demands get thrown around, more often than not this will be met by disappointment and resentment. No more so does this occur than in the relationship between artists and record labels, where disagreements in the terms of a release can often lead to feelings of difficulty, frustration, and anger. In this episode, I explain how shifting your...

FMM062 - Guard the factory of your mind

6/8/2020
There’s a truth in the saying “You are what you eat” and it also applies to what we surround ourseves with. If we surround ourselves with negative influences, then our energy drops and our limiting beliefs will start to form and be reinforced and life of music becomes a real struggle but… If we surround ourselves with positive influences, we feel inspired and we feel empowered to chase down our goals in both life and music. In this episode, I talk about guarding the factory of your mind....

FMM061 - Does your music define you?

6/1/2020
As music producers we put a lot of personal value in the music that we create, but should we let it define us? Definitely not! This can be a dangerous game because when we do this, we get hurt by our own or someone else's opinion of our music. This can then lead us to avoiding writing music because we don’t want to hurt ourselves any further. I see this scenario holding back a lot of music producers when they pin their own personal values and self worth on the quality of their music. So...
