At the risk of sounding melodramatic, if you want to make it in the music industry and seeking the truth about what it takes, today’s episode could be a game changer for you.
First, if you haven’t heard of Peter Hollens, search his name on Google. He is today’s guest. You need to understand just how popular he is before you listen to his interview.
Peter was introduced to me by the guest of our previous episode—Graham Cochrane from The Recording Revolution. What I love about Peter (and Graham), is how confident they are in the belief that anyone can make it in the music industry today—because they’ve lived it.
That’s why Peter is so unapologetic with his brutal, honest critique of musicians during the interview. His success in the music industry is the result of his work, skill, and knowledge. He’s right, and he knows it.
That’s why the interviews featured on Musician Monster are important. You’re basically rewiring your brain with the knowledge and mindset you need get the results you want. To do what you love full–time on your terms, learning to think like the successful independent artists who have gone before you, is a prerequisite.
If you’re needing motivation and inspiration, suit up. You’re going to love today’s episode.
