What is a “song diver” and are you one? Brent and Johnny discuss what it means to “dive deep” into song ideas. Tune into this week’s episode as Brent gives valuable advice that he has received from top music industry professionals.
It’s not enough to just throw lyrics at an idea. If we want cuts, we need to dive deep into our songs.
This is a show dedicated to helping singers, songwriters and indie artists gain leverage in the music business. Leverage is what they’re going to need to succeed in today’s music industry. The days of big labels or big publishing companies developing the diamond in the rough into a household brand name are over. You’re going to have to have proof that your art has value in the marketplace to get a seat at the table with the pros. That’s why we called it the C.L.I.M.B. (Creating Leverage In the Music Business).
Host Brent Baxter is a hit songwriter who helps other songwriters turn pro by teaching them how to write like a pro, do business like a pro and by connecting them to the pros. His co-host, Johnny Dwinell, co-founded Daredevil Productions in 2012 with a focus on breaking artists in the digital world. Over the years, Dwinell has headed up digital marketing for cruises featuring popular artists like Tracy Lawrence, Ty Herndon, Jamie O’Neal and Andy Griggs.
