Conquered 4 Life - Episode 11 - My Name Is Matt! feat. Peter Michael Miller of We Are The Willows

Episode 11 features Peter Michael Miller of We Are The Willows and the debut of another track from my forthcoming studio album I'm Giving Up On Rock & Roll! Conquered 4 Life is an every-other-week or so "podcast" from me, Christopher Ford (Christopher the Conquered, Gloom Balloon, Maximum Ames Records) in which I discuss recent happenings in my little world of music with my friend and bad music lover Chris Biagini aka "The Genie".

In Episode 11, we discuss:

  • Difference between when the song is art and when it becomes a product
  • What is indie music?
  • What will make you starting thinking about the money?
  • Wait a sec: Is your art a cheeseburger that fell on the ground? Why is Wilco worth more than Christopher the Conquered?
  • How much are you worth?
  • I explain exactly how I pay my band.
  • The power of positivity: how many bands do I really actually like?
  • Why don’t musicians trust people who say they want to help them?
  • Making people open their doors before you knock
  • How to get musicians to do what you want them to do
  • Genie tries to figure out how to book an out of town show and we sit him down!
  • We tell you everything you need to know about how to book yourself. BOOM. Keys to the kingdom, baby.
  • Debut of the song "Mystery" from my new album! You have to listen to the very end.
