WHY SHOULD WE HIRE YOU??
My experience in the music industry spans 25 years and two continents; I started writing songs when I was 15 & am now a staff songwriter (multi-genre) for the Country Music Hall of Fame. I have written, produced & released 14 original albums & toured the US and Europe, and have played over 2,000 shows. Most of that time, my band & I handled all of our booking, promotions, merch design, album production, web-stuff, tour management, fund-raising & accounting, and still somehow found time to write the songs & gig like crazy.
I was feeling my way around in the dark always wishing I could have someone to be what I will be to you, your family, and your band.
BUT ENOUGH ABOUT ME. Here are the success stories of my last 2 long-term clients.
A solo artist I developed from age 9 until age 12, went from never having performed live to gigging, writing tons of songs, & rockin' on guitar. Then at her parents request, I prepped and went with her to audition for America's Most Talented Kids. She ended up winning the entire season after 12 consecutive weeks on the nationally televised show-- receiving a $50,000 prize and starting a bidding war among the major record labels. After signing with Sony Worldwide, she released an album and toured nationally at public schools and special events... which included performing one of her original songs at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. She landed her own show on MTV, then started a band who ended up with two Grammy-nominated songs. Her band ultimately ended up opening a world tour for Taylor Swift.
One band that I coached were 3 sisters ages 10, 12, & 14. They went from playing birthday parties in a small town (without a drummer) to touring regionally with a full band. They have now gotten more press than I can keep up with-- newspapers, magazines, television interviews and performances, and in 2014- at ages 14, 16, & 18, were chosen to shoot a National Ford Commercial. Last year they also caught the attention of famous producer/engineer Ken Caillat, Colby's dad- who won the Grammy for producing Fleetwood Mac's legendary “Rumours” album, and additionally shot a pilot for their own reality show, in which I was a cast member.
I'm not making this stuff up. Let's get you ready to take over the world. We have a lot of work to do. Don't waste another hour rehearsing without a Coach!
YOU SOUND EXPENSIVE.
I have an hourly fee or a day-rate, but can also work with you on your budget as I was once a starving artist & still had some amazing teachers. In other words, if I see serious potential and like what I hear, you can apply for a scholarship & we will figure something out... K?
SUBMIT NOW. We will have a (free) 15 minute consultation where I'll listen to you play or sing a song or 2 (original or cover) and listen to you talk about your dreams and goals.
ALL AGES, STYLES & LEVELS ARE WELCOME. Can't WAIT to hear what you're working on!
