Today's topic is the importance of artist development, and contains my interview with an expert in the field: PCG Nashville’s Bernard Porter. Listen to this podcast episode for tips to greatly increase your chances of success in the music business, and become a well-rounded, happier human being in the process. Subjects covered in this episode include:

  • Areas typically missing in ‘artist development’ that can sabotage the successful breaking of new artists
  • Traits in a singer that turn Bernard off; signalling that singer may not ever succeed in the music industry.
  • Whether it is important for a singer to be a songwriter. 
  • The vital importance of an artist to be able to 'own' the stage with presence and performance skills.
  • The difference vocal training can make to a recording and performing artist.
  • The impact of persistence, dedication and even sacrifice required for the potential for the artist to succeed.
  • Ways even those without a lot of financial means can still find the money, heart, and effort to invest in training and preparing for a music career.
  • How PCG Artist Development works uniquely to grow artists in different dimensions, and what the byline of the company 'the science of artist development' means.
  • The brand new arm of the company that is offering training to everyone, even those who can't afford to enroll in the primary PCG program. (A little disclaimer… I am proud to be the author of PCG Online's vocal coaching courses, in the company of other instructors I highly respect authoring courses which include songwriting, auditioning, music theory, live performance. )

When it comes to singing on stage, the size of the venue matters tremendously. In this episode I will take you through the differences in physicality and psychology you need for singing or speaking on small and large stages. When you apply these techniques and do the right thing for the size stage you on, your stage presence will increase magnetically. Get it wrong or reversed, you'll seriously sabotage your connection to the audience.
