The Dwelling Light ,

Honest and informative

There is a lot of music industry advice available to independent musicians these days. Rick not only has his finger on the pulse for the knowledge he teaches (by staying up to date with trends and the latest strategies), he has a no BS, "trim the fat" approach to teaching, which I greatly appreciate. This approach takes out the overwhelm, confusion and ineffectiveness that can come with trying to be an independent artist.

What I particularly love about this podcast and Rick's approach to teaching, is his honesty in admitting his strengths and weaknesses. When he does not know something, he finds and interviews other experts that compliment his knowledge and skills, to find the answer. It takes a person who is committed to serving others to do something like this. It is selfless, egoless and inspiring.

Thank you so much for all you give Rick.
