SAICOLOGY – by SaiDON

Hey guys, it’s been some months, but I’m back on track! This past August, I came out with my new Album “Saicology”. This album is an album that mainly focuses on production, but also features a lot of talented artists on it as well. This project includes artists like Mikey More (Floda), Kxmikaze, Glokknine, Lemuel and many more. The purpose of the Saicology tape was to give people an outlook on how I perceive music,  especially when I’m making it. The name came from a friend of mine, so after a lot of thinking, I began to run with it. The tape has had some success since its release, and has only had good reviews from different people around the country. The Album is also available on ALL PLATFORMS, so you can stream anywhere! I’ve done an interview with the Soiree Szn Podcast on the whole process for the tape, so I will put the link below. Thanks for reading! More posts soon.

The interview starts at the 1:11:00 mark!

 

 

 

Producers, did you go to College? Poll

Most young producers are worried about how to become successful in the music business and industry. Do you need to go to college? Can I just work and make music on the side? Do I have to go to a music school only for music? These are very important questions that need to be answered. Fortunately, I did a poll on Twitter about this same topic, and here are what the twenty-seven people voted:

 

As you can see from the poll, most people say they are just working at the moment. Take what you guys need from this poll, and try to base your opinion on this. Whatever your decision is, make sure it is best for you!

How Do New Music Producers Earn Money To Support Themselves?

How do you sustain yourself financially when you are a new music producer?

It’s a tough world for budding music producers who are trying to make it in the music industry and support themselves financially. That’s why I have gathered the best advice for new music producers from those who have tried and failed at making music production their full-time career.

How do you sustain yourself financially when you are a new music producer?

Advice from Leflur

At 17, I played in a rock band in high school, which saw moderate success locally. I tried college for a semester, but couldn’t get the burning desire to see where music could take me off of my mind. I started writing music again for a new project. Fast forward a few months, the project comes together, and we see a lot more success than the previous effort. We start to get offers to go on tour. My parent’s quickly started to lecture me about how it wasn’t something I should pursue, for the same reasons you’ve described here. To make a long story short….

I ended up playing in the band for 8 years. We toured the country several times over playing small gigs for usually 200-300 people. I didn’t make any money doing it, just enough to feed myself on the road, keep a roof over my head at home with the guys in the band, and pay for band expenses. We slept in our 15 passenger van, or on some kind person’s floor most nights we were out on the road. I did however, have the best time of my life.

It was a fabulous life experience that taught me more about being an adult than anything college was going to teach me at that age. I made friendships that will last a lifetime. Half the guys stood up in my wedding this past October. This path is not for everyone, but for me, I wasn’t ready to do the college / get a “real” job thing just yet. I wasn’t emotionally mature enough, and it would’ve been a waste of my parents money, because I wouldn’t have taken it seriously. All I wanted to do was take my talent of music, and try to make something of it. After I decided it was time to move on from the band, I went back to school. I now have a good job working as a purchasing manager for a Pro Audio company, I’m married, and far along into college. Everything my parents had hoped for me has come to pass, just a decade later. The reason I’m sharing this story is to encourage you. My parents are the first ones to say that although they didn’t understand then, they understand now.

Advice from ThePhallusofGod

So many jobs that nobody thinks of…

Production music (stock music for radio, tv, games – can be more lucrative than being an artist), live sound mixing at all kinds of venues (sporting, corporate, schools), audio assistant/audio director for outside broadcast/streaming.

Advice from Leiwaan

There are plenty of audio related jobs other than music producer that you will be unknowingly training yourself for.

Look into more audio related jobs as well as music production, such as game audio, Foley artist, acoustic engineer, audio programmers, just to name a few.  Collaborate with others on projects. I got my first audio job by working on the sounds for a small game.

There’s loads more great opportunities in audio other than music, so be aware of them!

Advice from 555×555

it isn’t going to happen because you want it to, and it isn’t even going to happen because you’re good at it. It’s going to happen because you go through the necessary steps, you enter into the communities where people actually make it—this might involve moving to New York or Los Angeles or Berlin, also maybe not. It’s going to happen if you can realistically see your abilities, shortcomings and disadvantages, and how to make up for those. It’s going to happen because you’re recognized for who you are on a one-on-one basis. It’s honestly not that different from any other corporate job.

Advice from nova_newchorus

Here are three hard truths about the music industry:

1) The business structure is highly biased against the artist. He should absolutely read How Music Works by David Byrne to understand this on a deeper level.

2) You have to be really really good. I did a super rough calculation once and realized that if you take your salary as a musician and multiply it by 5-100x, that’s how much you could make if you worked in a different industry. Top ten richest musicians? Probably under a billion net worth. Top ten richest people? Tens of billions. I guarantee you they all work equally as hard. Money is also like the NFL. If you make it big, it’s hard to make it consistently. Ironically, being a producer is much more stable than being an artist in this respect. In order to make even a living, you have to be really good.

3) Luck. Yes all of that work and business acumen still do not guarantee success. Not much more to say about that.

SaiDON Presents The Corner Store- Free EPs For New Artists

When SaiDON began his career as a music producer he connected with new artists who needed free tracks to help them in their careers. He happily provided these tracks as a partnership because every music producer wants the music he creates to be heard.

After gaining experience as a music producer his skills became notable, he gained an audience and SaiDON moved on to producing custom tracks for artists who were more established.

These days SaiDON hasn’t forgotten about his humble beginnings when he was a hungry and driven young music producer who connected with hungry young artists. The Corner Store is his most recent offering to the music industry, a collection of FREE EPs made available through his Soundcloud page for any artist who is still trying to push forward in the industry.

SaiDON named this project The Corner Store because, “Every corner store always has just what you need,” he joked. “It’s a place you go to for quick satisfaction and that’s what my music guarantees.”

The Corner Store currently has 4 music tracks produced by SaiDON that are available for FREE. SaiDON plans to offer other music producers the opportunity to share FREE tracks in any genre in The Corner Store as a global collective of support for up and coming artists who want a shot at having their voices heard.

“Now that we have The Corner Store all artists can have a place to come to when they want to grab some fire tracks,” SaiDON said. “I only require that I receive producer credit for every song created and all artists who use the tracks let me know about it so that I can shout them out on Twitter.”

Check out the FREE EPs currently in The Corner Store Volume I.
