Ladies and gentlemen, I feel very privileged to have been able to speak with Mr. Jaddan Comerford who is the founder and CEO of Unified- a music company that provides a range of services including management, label, publishing, touring, festivals and merchandise to a diverse roster of internationally recognised and awarded artists.

I really do hold Jaddan in high regard. As I mention in the interview I get to meet so many aspiring music business wanna-be’s, particularly in the Australian heavy music scene, and very few are able to go on with a career, let alone start up an enormously successful company that services most facets of the music business.

As always I love hearing from you people so if you’d like to ever reach out you can email me at Rodney@musicbusinessfacts.com or or you get in contact via social media:

Today the wonderful person that I’ve connected with is Music Publicist and PR Strategist Angela Mastrogiacomo from Muddy Paw PR- Check her services out at MuddyPawPR.com

Now Angela is an absolutely wonderful person and I really enjoyed speaking with her. And we had a really awesome chat about the incredibly important topic of music publicity (surprise surprise). And as I often do- I threw in a few tricky and personal questions, and in this interview Angela gave me some awesome and really honest answers. She also provides a fantastic look into the world of what it’s like to be a music publicist, and gives some great advice for any of you people when it comes to using a publicist’s services.

Today I have a great treat for you. My guest today is Chris Gero. Not only is Chris a great and very humble bloke, but he’s also the Vice President of Yamaha Corporation USA. So I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to speak with this guy and be able to share that conversation with you.

Among other things Chris is also the Yamaha Artist Relations Executive and the founder of the Yamaha Entertainment Group. He is a Record Label Executive, Concert Producer, Film Director and Record Producer.

He's a really smart guy, and as I mentioned- very humble! During this interview, Chris gives me some really great insights and tips on how to approach potential sponsors- what to do and more importantly what not to do. We speak about a lot of other really cool stuff too but I really think that the gold in this conversation is Chris’ advice and take-aways about how to play it when you’re looking to get a sponsorship or endorsement.

If you’re listening to this and you’ve got the thought that you might like to become a publicist- there’s a ton of great information. In fact just the other day I was speaking with one of my music business diploma students who was considering publicity as a career after study, and after I played him this exact interview his mind was made up!

Chuck Billy is the lead vocalist for the American pioneering thrash metal band Testament. Although Testament's line up has changed over the years, Chuck has remained one of the constant members of the band that formed way back in 1986. That’s 30 years in the music business people- A very impressive feat to still be going and to still remain relevant in the often superficial world that is the music industry.

As you’ll hear in my interview, one of the super important reasons that Chuck, along with his long standing band mate Eric Peterson have been able to continue with Testament, and continue making money, is because they learned about the music business.

My guest today Steve Palfreyman is an artist, business coach, and entrepreneur who specialises in helping people succeed in business and music. He is the owner of MusicLaunchHub.com and recently conducted “The Music Launch Summit”, a huge and highly successful free online music business conference where he interrogated over 51 music business professionals on success strategies for the music industry. This included managers, agents, publicists, promoters, marketers, industry specialists and entrepreneurs- it really was incredible and highly educational!

I thought I’d get Steve on the show to introduce him to you, find out a little bit about him and see if I could get some of the takeaways he learned from speaking with so many high level music industry pro’s, and Steve was very happy to oblige.
