Connor Seidel (Songwriter/Producer)

Connor Seidel is a Montreal based songwriter & producer who has dedicated the last 10 years to developing new acts in the Quebec music scene. After 3 years of creative direction for Outro Music (a music technology company), he now holds residency at Cult Nation where he’s producing & writing with Charlotte Cardin, Matt Holubowski, Soran and a number of other emerging artists. After a gold record for Holubowski’s “Solitudes” he’s now building strong ties with the London & Berlin music scene, connecting Quebec artists with talent in Europe and bringing European acts back to Canada. Connor and Paul discuss Budgets, Production philosophies, Songwriting, Publishing, Licensing, Why you should never work for Free, Strategies on Splitting up Royalties, Grants and Finding a Grant Writer, and ways for artists and producers to make money these days. Perhaps the main take away from Connor's interview is his approach to songwriting, collaboration and the power of storytelling.

You'll also be hearing some new Charlotte Cardin Music throughout the show. If you haven't heard of her, you definitely need to. She's an artist with Cult Nation and Atlantic Records and the music is courtesy of them.  

Connor and I have known each other for a few years. He popped up on my radar a while before we actually met because we had worked with a few of the same artists. Fun Trivia Fact: We also both have produced and recorded a few artists who appeared on and were finalists on the hit TV show "La Voix" which is Canada's version of The VoiceConnor also had a string of #1 hits on Quebec Radio in 2018 and shows no signs of slowing down.

I had a great chat with Connor and I have to warn you it's even longer than the last one, but I promise it's chock full of music business goodness. And don't forget to stick around until the end for the outtakes.

Without further ado, here's my chat with the up in coming Producer/Songwriter Connor Seidel.
