This week’s show (January 9th) is all about the practical aspects of the music business and in particular, why it’s important to own your own future.
Our Guest, Reggie Stevens is a founding member of the music productions company Cruzmatic (www.Cruzmatic.com) who also goes by the name Famouz, or FMZ. Reggie is a former player for the New York Giants and the Arena Football League’s Nashville Kats. FMZ gained notoriety for being the first person to legally sample a Jon Bon Jovi song on a hip-hop track (“Bad Name,” from his debut album, Ghetto Passport). In addition to Bon Jovi, FMZ has worked with the likes of E-40, Bun B, DJ Unk, and Rankin Scroo.
Reggie has been in the music business for more than 15 years, has seen all the ups and downs of the business, and has some very useful advice for both experienced and new artists on how to get known, how to protect the rights to music and how to have a long-term career.
In addition to Reggie Stevens, Patricia and Rich will give us an update on recent progress with Patricia’s career and there will be other guests on the show as well.
