I had the pleasure of speaking to the creator of The Unsigned Music Podcast - Chris Jackson. After talking details about getting on the show, we got a little bit into talking about his motivation behind starting his podcast and it was apparent he really loves music and wants to help spring-load fellow musicians into the lives of people around the world.
It was really encouraging to see the amount of time and effort he's put into getting the podcast up and finding some really amazing music to feature - starting right at episode one.
Chris really has an ear for music that doesn't sound the same as radio pop but has all the great hooks and professionalism you might find in a big label. He takes very little personal credit on the show itself, keeping it simply about the music with only a little bit of speech in and around playing the tracks. Each episode features 2-3 songs from an band or songwriter so that listeners can get a feel, but not feel locked into a full playlist of songs to discover new music.
Chris said some really enlightening things about the songs that we had sent him and it was really great that he added us to the show on Episode 7. Even though you may know us, check out the other songs he's curated from the other 6 acts and make sure to leave him a review if you're listening on iTunes! Or even a comment on his website. As creators, we love hearing back from the people who enjoy what we're doing. You never know, one day we could end up playing Minecraft online together.
Stay Creative my friends!
