The Beatles assigned their publishing rights to Northern Songs, a company created by Beatles manager Brian Epstein and music publisher Dick James in 1963. The Beatles (particularly John Lennon and Paul McCartney) were soon earning so much money from songwriting royalties, record sales, concert performances, and merchandise licensing that they were losing over 90% of their income in taxes, and they were advised to find a way of receiving their revenue in the form of capital gains rather… Continue

Okay, I’m cheating a little bit this week with my blog and my tips. I’m actually borrowing my material from someone else, not because I couldn’t think of anything to write, but because I found something that I thought everyone (especially the “tweeters”) should read. I saw this article earlier this week by Dan Miller (www.48days.com) and really thought it was worth sharing. While I am on Twitter, you can tell from my posts that I'm not a Twitter junkie. I am already doing some the things…Continue

With fathers day being yesterday, I wanted to talk a little about my best friend and partner, my dad. For the past 9 years I have been attempting some kind of career in the music business. It all started when my younger brother Josh, the youngest of six children was killed in a tragic accident at age 17 at our family business in Utah. Being from such a close family, the devastation was unbearable. Watching my mom and dad loose there baby, and me loose… Continue
Hi!! I just recently joined this group. I am a member of the AES NY Section. I had spoken w/ Tom Edwards from the Nashville Section about my interest in re-locating to Nashville. He had suggested that I join this group b/c it would be a good networking opportunity for me to connect w/ Engineers, Song Writers, Musicians, etc. like me.
I had just completed an Audio-Recording Program in one of the Technical Schools here in NYC & now I want to be involved in a wider Music Community… Continue
I can't even begin to tell you how many times iv'e been told "Welcome to the music business." It's usually while I am curled up in the fetal position crying my eyes out. I found it so interesting when I first started coming to Nashville with my big eyes on being a big star, how often I'd hear this. I was young, I had a great investor, I had talent, I had paid some major dues, I had opened for huge acts like Terri Clark and Keith Urban, and I had a support group to die for. How could I go wrong?… Continue
Since my wife gave me satellite radio for my car two Christmases ago, I haven’t felt compelled to listen to much country radio. There is a wonderland of new alternative and roots music to discover, as well as comedians to amuse me and informative political talk to get my dander up. However, after dropping my daughter off at work, driving her car (sadly deprived of XM/Sirius), I decided to check in on what’s happening on the country airwaves.
I received info today, that The Library of Congress signed for receiving my Songbook (collection of lyrics). It could take up to 6 mo, or so I'm told, to receive confirmation on my copyrights. I have a copy of the postmark date, so from what I've been told, I'm legally covered.
Oh, I sent a couple more songs to another radio station today. Sooner or later, in one way or another, I'm gonna hear one of my songs on the radio. If I'd started doing this twenty years ago, when I first got here,… Continue
I thought I'd take a few minutes to go over the process of how a song I wrote just two weeks ago is already pro-demoed and being pitched by my songplugger here in Nashville.
16 days ago, I was experimenting on my iMac in Garageband with different loops and tracks. It seemed evrything i tried complimented the other tracks and before i knew it I had an intro, verse and chorus. The wonderful thing about computer composing is you can then copy/paste and suddenly you have 3 verses and… Continue

The following article is part 1 of a two part 'roundtable' interview on Nashville touring/session drummers. It appears in a popular online drum 'zine' called 'The Black Page'. It was a thrill to be featured in this magazine with my fellow Nashville drum pals. If you would like to see the full length document with pictures, please go to www.theblackpage.net/download. Also take the time to subscribe to The Black Page. You'll be glad you did! Here's the article:
When you are in the vocal booth in the process of recording, there is a part of you that you must keep out: Your inner critique.
This is the part of you that says things like:
* I'm flat on that note... no, I'm sharp...
* I'm not feeling it right now
* I got this track in the wrong key
* I can't hit that (high) (low) (long) (soft) note coming up
* I should know better than to think I could do this
* I am not getting this fast enough
* I… Continue
