Studio: CD Baby
What It Is
Folks in the industry talk about how to succeed as an indie musician.
Episodes run forty-five minutes to an hour typically. Wacky release schedule. This year, they released three episodes in June, one in July, none in August, two in September, one in October, etc. Entire archive of more than 150 episodes is available on iTunes.
What About It
I feel like this isn’t a bad podcast. It’s just about the least interesting parts of being a musician, as far as I’m concerned. It’s about the booking and the tuning and the best way to use studio time and all that stuff, which just isn’t stuff I’ve ever had to deal with myself. I’m a musician, but I’ve never attempted to be a working one. It is refreshing to hear a podcast so focused on the fringes; guests are selling CDs out of the trunk of their car or something like that sometimes. This is explicitly not a show about super professional successful musicians and I like that about it. But it’s mostly just uninteresting to me.
You are, in fact, right now, selling CDs out of the trunk of your car.
Avoid Like the Plague If
You have never in your life tuned a guitar and done stage banter at the same time.
