Above The Noise Music Industry Podcast with Music Marketer & Communications Specialist Wes Davenport
I have been following Wes for some time online and especially enjoyed an interview/case study with him in Hypebot. He shared some information on the marketing success he had with Nashville band "Vinyl Thief," how they had used the different tools available to them and what worked best.Wes is fairly new to the industry. I thought it would be interesting to interview somebody who is starting out on the premises of what the new music industry offers and how they are making it work for them.
I have known Devon since 2007. He is a soulful singer and passionate guitar player. He also happens to be the son of Greg Allman of the legendary Allman Brothers Band. This being said he has made his own path and found his own place in music.I have found it interesting to see the evolution of Devon's career over the last few years. This interview was from a while back and I thought it was an interesting point to listen to him talk about his expectations for 2012 and to now realize that they have already come to fruition.

This interview in particular is from a while back and was originally intended to be released as a written interview. However, after listening to it I realized that it should be available as a podcast. Chris is an engaging person to listen to and does a great job at conveying his answers. I really enjoyed interviewing Chris as he is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the world of songplugging and how to work a catalog of songs. Many people wonder what it takes to get your song performed by a top selling, top charting artist. This interview discusses just how that is done!
