Tired of that amateur "room sound" voice in your podcast show?

Here's a video I did about an awesome inexpensive little product that will instantly up your podcasting game and put the emphasis where it belongs: your message. The video is geared toward DIY music production but totally applies to some of the DIY challenges facing podcasters.

Agreed... I think it looks great. I could see an application for a digital recorder as well (the DIY thing I'm working on is aimed in that direction)

If you want to up your production game and learn the secrets of how the pros capture great vocal recordings while working in a home studio environment, whether making music or podcasting, here's an awesome little secret weapon. It's called the Kaotica Eyeball.

Great little tool you should know about.

We lost a true rock and roll soul with a heart of gold this past weekend, Harvey Luckman. He was a good friend and a true New York character to the core. This is my tribute to him.

Happy 71st Birthday Jimi!

Hope you're rocking out to some classic Jimi today.

Me, I wanted to give something to the world for all the inspiration I've received over the years from Jimi's music, his spirit and his mind bending guitar playing.

So today on his birthday, I want to give away this free eBook to all creators out there, musical and otherwise. It's called The Jimi Hendrix Guide to Immortality: 20 Essential Secrets to Creating Unforgettable Art.

It's a fantastically fictional interview with the Voodoo Child himself where Jimi tells you "in his own words" how to create your own legend. I hope it inspires you to dig a little deeper and find your greatest self so you can share that awesomeness with the world and become a beacon of inspiration for others to follow.

Sing on brother (and sister). Play on drummer!

If you're someone like Benny Goodman, or Ella Fitzgerald in their time, the nexus of art and branding equals high art that's available to lift technical musical standards and educate as well as entertain the public. The Goodman of 1938 was not the Goodman of 1940. He had progressed into Eddie Sauter territory, which was very progressive. Likewise, Fitzgerald's early recordings with the Webb band are not at all like her 1950's-60's solo Verve records. This is true of many bands from all periods and all types of music- I'm just using these two as sterling examples of moving on in a big way, with their music and branding intact over decades...Time is a good test.
