MGT57: Why You Haven’t Produced Enough Music – Alex Cowles (Stillhead)

WWe begin each podcast’s introduction with listing the guest’s projects. Today will be an exception, as we wouldn’t have enough space to list everything our interviewee has been working on! We invite you to explore the world of Alex Cowles, also known as Stillhead, yourself.

The good place to start, besides the podcast itself, is the show notes – you will discover numerous gems there, including the collection of the best music descriptions you have read in your life.

In this WeSpin Recipes episode, Alex talks on what he had to go through changing his artist alias from DFRNT to Stillhead (with tips on how you can manage such a transition), the reason he created the now legendary guide on sending music to labels, his upcoming course called How To Self Release (and why it covers much more than self-releasing music), email marketing for IKEA, branding tips, and so much more.

Listen to the show to also learn why you have to be proactive when it comes down to protecting your brand, as well as the biggest regret Alex had after switching his artist names.
