Welcome to the pre-episode of the UnFamous Podcast
. The teaser, the trailer the "what the heck is this show about?" Episode. I'm your host, the soothing voice in your earbuds, Paul Edwards
I'm an Audio Engineer & Music Technologist from Montreal. I've been making music and helping others make music for a while now and also spent four years as Lead Audio Engineer at LANDR, running the audio team and helping create an online Artificial Intelligent Mastering service. I'll be getting into all that in future episodes, but mainly I'll be interviewing Engineers, Producers, Artists, and Others in the pursuit of audio knowledge, and gettings advice on building a successful career in the music industry. We'll also no doubt dig up some good ol' fashioned in studio & tour shenanigan tales. One thing I hope for this show is to have a little fun and not take things too seriously. After all I basically got into music to have a good time and meet people who shared my passion for music and who spend their lives creating art by putting music into the world.
There are a lot of reasons why I wanted to start this Podcast; from an excuse to catch up with old friends and colleagues, a way to meet new people in the industry and also to cover some topics I haven't been hearing on other shows, or at least maybe to approach them in a different way.
I find a lot of Music shows often speak with the 1%, by which I mean, the superstars of audio who ultimately offer little to the rest of us in terms of relatability. Let's face it, most of us will never have access to huge budgets and the world's best studios. We also can't go back in time to when the tap was flowin'. Don't get me wrong I do enjoy listening to those guys talk about the golden days of record production, but it doesn't offer much in terms of strategies for today's realities. Does that mean I'll never interview a Grammy winner, heck no, that would be good times, but it's just not my main goal.
What UnFamous seeks is concrete advice and strategies from the rest of the 99%. The men & women making a life in music, and maybe giving the listener a leg up in his or her career along the way.
Thanks for lending me your ears and have a good one!
