The Secrets Of Truly Successful Networking & Planning with Keith Profeta

For July’s episode of the podcast I was super excited to chat with Keith Profeta. Forever a music lover, Keith has held many positions throughout the music industry. The music business is as much a passion as the music itself. Jumping in and out of bands starting at age 16, Keith never really found his true calling in front of the microphone. At that point he started managing a friend’s band, handling all the behind the scenes work in making the band a success. Never being satisfied, Keith started a fanzine to find more great music and reviewed 100’s of band’s demos, offering them straightforward tips on how to get to the next level in their careers. A few bands really struck and he was signed on to be a promoter for them eventually turning it into a full-time booking agency in New York City. To expand his knowledge Keith then attended the Berklee College of Music and earned a degree in Music Business. This led to a position at a music marketing firm in Manhattan to continue learning about the business side of music. Today the dream continues at Indie Band Guru, staying busy in music and helping guide musicians to the promised land of a successful career in music. Keith has found that the part that has most dreamers stuck is having an actual plan. We all try to do a million things at once and in the end do not do any one of them well. Taking the time to develop a plan and an order of work will produce much greater results in a much quicker time frame. We focussed on discussing how to really build those all-important, door-opening relationships – and how to create a solid plan to keep motivated and focussed. Keith is totally open to chatting with you further if you have any questions. Reach out to him at indiebandguru@gmail.com, putting Daydream Believers in the subject line Here are the questions we addressed: Ron: I always find it difficult to build a relationship with people like Keith. What can I do to keep in contact with, and learn to be useful to him? Patrick: I tried hard at networking in IT but fail to make long term networking relationship. Any tips on harvesting meaningful networking relationships? Matthew: What is Keith’s approach to planning for a goal? We have focussed on the 12 Week Year approach quite a bit in the group providing small milestones to keep motivated for larger goals. How would he keep his eyes on the prize to guarantee success? If funds are low for employing a PR firm what steps can we take to help engage with new fans? Are we limiting our success with the go it alone approach? And when is the right time to engage with a professional PR Team? Do you need an audience (other than licensing firms and music supervisors) if you are writing for sync? Xabiso: I have just started promoting my own night club event. I would like to know if you have any advice when it comes to the business side of things. Simply put: how would I run it like a business? I know this could be very broad – a few pointers would be really helpful. This will actually be the last episode of the Daydream Believers podcast. Moving forward, I’ll be teaming up with Xabiso and Matthew to create a brand new music podcast called Music Of The Spheres. We’ll be showcasing electronic music artists and labels: interviewing guests, featuring guest mixes and also presenting you with our own tune selections from the artists and labels that are making our ears tingle. We’re aiming to launch later this year – updates will be coming soon so stay tuned! Thanks so much for listening!

Inside The Mind Of A Musician with James Willis

For June’s episode of the podcast, I was excited to welcome as our guest, another Dreamer: James Willis. He was so nervous, bless him! This was his first ever interview. James has always had a passion for music and first started recording over 20 years ago. He grew up in the East Midlands, in the UK, then moved to Cornwall in his early 20s. He took a bit of a hiatus from music between 2005-2012 to take on a job on the railways travelling the UK – and during this time, his son was born. He may not have been making music over this period, but he listened to music religiously whilst driving up and down the country from job to job. Around 2012, his relationship started breaking down and as a result, he threw himself into music production again. In 2017 he released his first album through the distribution company, Amuse. He has now released…wait for it…no less than six albums and two singles – and he has no intention on stopping anytime soon! Here are some of the questions we covere...

How to be unstoppable with Ryan Smith

For May’s episode of the Daydream Believers podcast, Liz was super excited to welcome as one of our guests a Dreamer himself – Ryan Smith. Ryan is a prolific creative. He is also autistic and that makes a lot of things hard or impractical for him. But he hasn’t let that stop him. One thing he’s learned in life is that some people were dealt good cards…others were given more challenging ones. That said, he believes everyone has one mighty trump card that only they have or can play. The cards Ryan was dealt are not easy to play – but he’s come to realise that his power card is his imagination – his creativity – and he has learned to harness that. During this episode, our aim was to encourage people who have a big idea or a dream, and who know they’re on a very different path, especially if the dream is difficult to do. People who come from very difficult backgrounds or have handicaps, like Ryan. We discussed how we can play to our strengths and use them to outplay our shortc...

Emotional Empowerment, Self-healing and Self-Connection with Veronica Amarelle

For this month’s episode of the Daydream Believers podcast, I was super excited to explore emotional empowerment, self-healing and self-connection with life coach and wellbeing specialist, Veronica Amarelle from Healed Soles. Veronica focuses on helping people deeply connect to their own inner wisdom and ability to self-heal. It is through nurturing this deep connection to the self that we can feel a deep sense of emotional stability and empowerment in our day to day lives. This then increases our ability to design and live life in a way that’s inspiring, uplifting and in alignment with our best possible realities. She has spent 12 years studying energy healing, life coaching and numerous different healing modalities and has created an incredible course tying together some of the best techniques to teach people how to master their own emotions and how to feel more stable and deeply connected to life. During this episode, we spoke at length about how you can tap into your own inner...

Yoda Speaks with Gary Gray – Part 2

This is the second half of the two-part podcast episode, during which I chatted with The Master himself: my dear friend and mentor,Gary Gray. Gary is an award-winning composer/songwriter/producer/engineer and author of the “The Home Studio Bible.” He is considered one of the top mentors in the entertainment industry and his list of clients include 20th Century Fox, The Disney Music Group, Hollywood Records, and of course yours truly! He was extremely fortunate to acquire mentors such as Phil Collins, Phil Ramone, Quincy Jones, Chick Corea and other legendary greats and takes great joy in passing the knowledge and wisdom he learned from these greats to those ready to listen. One of the reasons Gary is regarded so highly in the industry is that he approaches each person as a whole, and does not just “teach.” In fact, as you’ll discover during this episode, Gary will reveal why he considers it extremely damaging to “teach” an artist how to do their art. Whether you’re in the mu...

Which Wolf Are You Feeding? with D Grant Smith

I’m so excited to be welcoming back the awesome D Grant Smith to the podcast. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this extraordinary human being, D is a growth farmer (aka a coach who empowers people to be their best, love who they are and create strong connections). The core principle he operates his life around is this: “Your heart and your mind is a garden. What you plant inside yourself with your thoughts, beliefs and patterns produce fruit in your actions, attitudes, and behaviours.” Relationship building is a huge part of our success journey as creatives. You’ve probably heard D Grant talk about how to effectively build relationships with industry professionals, other musicians, and influencers to grow your career and create new pathways for success. But what about the interpersonal relationships we have? What happens when the relationship with your someone special, partner or spouse goes in the wrong direction? Or what happens if it comes to an end? What do you do?...

The Power Of True Connection with Daniel Levin

For December’s episode of the Daydream Believers Podcast, I interviewed Daniel Levin, author of the insightful, wise and deeply beautiful book, The Mosaic. We chatted about the four practices of connection, how we as creatives can connect to the work we are doing – and how the archetypes of The Mosaic can help one in the creative process. We also discussed what the silos of thought are that trap the creative mind flow, what the destination practice is and how it applies to the creative process – and who is creating who… It was a deep, thoughtful and extremely insightful episode – it’ll provide you with some beautiful new ways of thinking to approach your new year – and will most definitely enrich your life! Questions submitted by my coaching community that we addressed: * I would like to know more about how to connect with myself a bit more. Not in a narcissistic way, but how to be more in sync with my subconscious mind and my soul. * How do the archetypes of The Mosaic help ...

Get Inspired & Strategic with Bree Noble

For this month’s episode, I sat down with the awesome and inspirational Bree Noble. As well as being a music marketing and business coach extraordinaire, Bree is also a music artist and host of the award-winning podcast, Women Of Substance Radio. Bree and I covered the juicy topics of mindset and how to smash through overwhelm, fear and limiting beliefs. We also touched on her 5 stages of music career growth, relating the marketing element of these stages to a career in any creative field, not just music. We chatted through her inspirational life-story and some enormous leaps of faith that she took in order to transform her life. She is living proof that anything is possible when we are truly committed. We also touched on how vulnerability connects people and how, by far, the best way to sell your music, is to share your story with your audience.

Awakening – The Album Showcase

My darlings! I almost can’t believe it…the album…it’s ready! To celebrate, I made this month’s episode of the podcast a music edition – and created an album showcase. During this hour-long episode, I play you some of the tracks from the album and talk you through them, going into a bit of detail about the meaning of each song and how they were made. I named this album Awakening because the journey of its creation has been one of tremendous growth and realisation for me. Throughout the process of its creation, I have learned to let go and push past a lot of fear. I’ve had to overcome a lot of obstacles – and I’ve had to find the faith to be able to let go and surrender to the journey. I want this album to be an example to everyone of what is possible when you’re truly committed to something. When you awaken and answer the call of your soul. When you put the fear and excuses to one side and put everything you have into achieving your purpose. Because what we’re capable of i...
