This is a business. To make money as a musician, your artwork needs to captivate people so they’re compelled to listen and spend money, your business tactics need to be innovative, and you have to be willing to navigate insecurity, perfectionism and feedback.

3/29/2019
More
I walked into Leah T’s house in West Seattle and fell in love. This girl hand-painted all her furniture teal, she’s hauled a beautiful old piano in the living room, there are plants and guitars hanging on the wall, beers chillin’ outside the front door, a view of the city through the window, and a throw pillow that said “Dwight, you ignorant slut.” — “So when do I move in?” was my first thought. ;P Leah T plays piano / keyboard professionally in multiple bands in Seattle. She also has her...

A computer engineer by day, Bug Hunter gained his confidence to perform music by playing Taylor Swift songs for drunk people in an alleyway outside of a bar at 11 pm; a place where he could suck and no one would notice. Through open mics, he quickly fell in love with the Seattle music scene community and now that his music is available online, his honest songs are connecting with people worldwide.

ZKRY takes me straight to his piano when I walk into his apartment and he’s excited to show me the new music he’s been working on this morning. His place is full of his instruments and paintings. He’s the first electronic artist I’m interviewing for this podcast. We sit on his couch and dive straight into a nerdy conversation about his passion for music that started as a kid when he would go to music shops, hotels and bars just to get his hands on a piano. He went on to study business and...

7: I Realized There’s a “Fuck It” Adjustment That Comes with Being a Musician with Katie Kuffel

2/27/2019
More
When Katie Kuffel sings, my jaw drops…every time. She started writing songs in high school to release angst and since 2013 or so she’s been mastering the hustle, running her fully-time music business and juggling illustration and bartending on the side. Katie sings about mental health, sexual identity, assault, general well-being, and recovery and most of her followers are young women, non-binary individuals, LGBTQ, very liberal minded humans. She currently leads a trio band and like I said,...

In this episode, on a dark rainy winter night, Heather and I drink tea on the sidewalk outside Chocolati Cafe in Wallingford, Seattle and talk about how scary it is to share your music and start performing, how writing sad songs is...

4: People Just Want to See You Have Fun on Stage with Tyler Hamilton

2/4/2019
More
Let’s step inside Tyler Hamilton’s funky artist loft in Ballard, Seattle; it’s full of handmade musical equipment — he never wants any of his musical equipment to have a logo other than “Hamilton” on it. Coffee is brewing, his girlfriend is running out the door and we sit down to talk about the nerves he feels before he walks on stage, how he plays with people’s emotions, why it’s a good idea to record albums at the end of tours, and why rule-free house shows are the best gigs. → BLOG POST...

1: Why do we feel this urge to create songs? with Nick Drummond

2/4/2019
More
“Why do we feel this urge to create songs? Why does that light a fire under our ass? What is it about the medium, the combination of melody and rhythm, what makes that so powerful, so spiritual, so at times actually divine? What makes you want to do that?” This elusive topic sparks a conversation with Nick Drummond whilst sitting beneath a tree somewhere in Seattle. → Watch on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gfkdu-vsIWA&t=1457s → BLOG POST (Video, Quotes, & Photos)...
