471 - Trey Xavier - Helping us all make music better!
Brian, Blake, and Richard are joined by the ultra talented YouTube sensation Trey Xavier for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!
The guys are delighted to be joined by the one and only Trey Xavier this week who's "Secret Price of the Creative Life" video almost caused Brian to reach his resonant frequency and spontaneously shatter. Trey is a super nice, ridiculously talented, and ultra experienced YouTube creator and he has got a hugely popular channel where amongst other things he breaks down music as submitted by his audience.
Trey tells us all about the trials and tribulations of creating content for YouTube and how to manage the expectations of an audience and candidly speaks on the topics that trouble him, the issues he faces, and how he overcomes them. Meanwhile, Richard uses language that confuses Brian. All of the guys chip in with the debate and amazingly stay on topic throughout as they also discuss some of the surprising things they have come across on the internet as content creators.
The debate turns to the direct model for artists creating, producing, and distributing their own content and how life for musicians has radically shifted as a result. This leads on to a detailed discussion about how to build income streams from creativity and how to find your niche in an increasingly crowded creative space. The guys look at song crafting, riff writing, and commercial implications, and there are confusing breakfast cereal moments.
Those are Brian's chickens, Wiggly tape recorder, More hats, Wangs, Loopy Tingles...it's all in this week's Chasing Tone!
