    PROs (ASCAP, BMI) need not be a mystery any more! Colson Gower works as an Artist Services Publishing Supervisor at CD Baby and leads us through the process of picking a PRO, registering your music, and the submitting set lists so that you can get your due from live performances. Also a deep chat about SoundExchange who pays for those internet streams! Hang out until the end to hear a fiddle solo!

    Barn Banter - Ep 14 - Booking Agents with Sarah MacCarthy

    Psst... hey you wanna get some gigs? Heh... heh.. heh... no seriously, you want more gigs? Well one path you might take is to secure a booking agent! This time we chat with Sarah MacCarthy who heads up Dandelion Artists, a booking agency that specializes in nailing high profile venues for children's musicians like Jazzy Ash and The Okee Dokee Brothers! Is a booking agent in your future? Will it help? Are you ready? Do you really really need them? What does it cost? How does it work? Are you allowed to say "Book 'em Sarah!"? (Spoiler alert, you are not).

    Barn Banter - Ep 13 - Jazz with Lucy Kalantari

    Barn Banter - Ep 13 - Jazz with Lucy Kalantari

    Lucy Kalantari and The Jazz Cats have cut a wide swath in children's music with a Grammy win and frequent plays on KPL! It got me thinking, does an artist who digs deep into a specific music style have an advantage or disadvantage when it comes to gaining traction in the overall genre? Lucy joins me this time to talk about what it is like to focus on one specific style of music, how they got there, and how they works to expand musical options for kids and families. Also a cool track, a chat about call and response, and a continuing dialogue about how I am totally not stalking Lucy despite the creepy language I seem to use that would make it seem otherwise. (I AM NOT STALKING LUCY I JUST LISTEN TO HER MUSIC!)

    Barn Banter - Ep 12 - KindieComm with Robert Drake

    Barn Banter - Ep 12 - KindieComm with Robert Drake

    KindieComm time! Listen to a convo with Robert Drake, producer of Kid’s Corner since 1988 with Kathy O’Connell. Everything you need to know if you plan on attending a conference specifically for kid’s music performers. We also have a really enlightening discussion on the difference between “children’s” music and “music for kids”, I get Robert to pin down who coined the term “Kindie” (spoiler, her initials are SM and she has a consulting agency), we grapple with the word “interesting” and go deep into the evolution of the kid’s music genre and where it might be headed.

    Barn Banter - Ep 11 - Covers and Parodies with Randy Kaplan

    (To the tune of Mr. Bassman) Hey Randy Kaplan, you sure do sing some songs... When is comes to mechanical licenses, you do not steer us wrong... Oh Mr. Kaplan, your distinct voice is perfect to explain, (spoken) things like derivative lyrics,  Nirvana covers and public domain! (end song). That's right my lovelies, this episode the award winning songster Randy Kaplan gives a funtasic overview of what to do should you want to record a cover song. Also a brief chat about dirty rats who steal your tunes, fishing with Bob Dylan, and why to never cover a Prince song. Lots of trippin' round the virtual mitten on this one!

    Barn Banter - Ep 10 - Radio DJ Sagan Thacker

    Radio waves! Oh the days of Wolfman Jack may be behind us but there are still class acts spinnin' stacks of wax from the back of the racks to fast track attack the... the... um... ok can't think of another one. But still! There are a few really nifty radio shows that can get your music to a whole new flock of listeners! This time we talk to the most excellent DJ from Ashville who lays out a weekly 2-hour show called Radio Active Kids. Sagan Thacker and I talk about what they like to see from artists as far as press kits, how they select music for the show, and a few choice dos and please do not do that we recording artists should heed! Stick around until the end to hear how and where you can see if anyone played your tune on the radio and also get a not so veiled threat of fiddle if you don’t like and share the podcast!
