Cory Wong is a guitarist who has played with artists such as Vulfpeck, Ben Rector, Brandon Heath, and Gene Simmons (just wait!)

I know I say that every episode, but seriously, you're in for a treat. In this episode, Cory and I talk about How he made money recording acoustic guitar tribute albums How he came to own the massive library of tribute albums that he recorded Developing your own sound that makes you more valuable The most insanely hilarious gig story I've ever heard. The importance of being artistically satisfied and not just making money How he splits his time between Minneapolis and Nashville Balancing career and family and utilizing the support system of musicians around you going through similar things.

SMP 023: John Whitt Jr: Keyboardist, Kendrick Lamar, Miguel

We've talked before about the importance of really killing it when you sub for someone else, but John Whitt Jr. takes that to a whole new level. In this podcast interview with John Whitt Jr, you'll hear how he managed to sub into the Kendrick Lamar band, on a rig that wasn't his, with no rehearsal or even soundcheck, and nail it enough to land the fulltime gig a few months later. Whaaaa? Yes. John Whitt Jr. has worked with many artists such as Kendrick, Miguel, Tinashe, Alicia Keys, and Common. It was a pleasure talking to him and picking his brain, and you'll get a lot of valuable info out of this episode.

SMP 020: How To Talk About What You Do

This week I sat down with my friends Mario Montes and Gabi Ramirez for a conversation. The main topic for the day was this: how do you answer the question, "What do you do for a living?" This can be a hard question to know how to answer, especially depending on who you're talking to. In this episode we discuss what to think about and how to craft the perfect elevator pitch.
