Touring, Persistance, and Self-Awareness with Travis Terrell

“Niche down until it hurts.” — Travis Terrell

In this episode, I sit down with Travis Terrell. He’s a musician and one of the CEO’s of Soundstripe, which is an online platform for filmmakers to access royalty free music. We chat about how he got his start in music, how he deals with fear, his best advice for new artists, and much more. He’s got a wealth of experience in the industry, so you surely don’t want to miss out on his advice.

This episode is brought to you by EDM Foundations.

EDM Foundations is my course for new producers, those who’ve been producing for under 12 months, or even those who’ve just started. You can learn more about it here.

The whole idea of the EDM Foundations course is that you learn the fundamentals of music production by actually doing and not just learning concepts. The course consists of 12+ hours worth of streamable video where I walk you through the creation of 3 songs, and give you advice for creating your own original.

We’ve had over 1000 people sign up for the course, many of them have had great results. Hope to see you in there.
