MY FIRST TIME: Jeremy Weiss (Owner – CI Records, Founder – LAUNCH Music Conference)

In our latest edition of My First Time, Jeremy Weiss (Owner of CI Records and Founder of the LAUNCH Music Conference) was kind enough to talk to Infectious Mag all about how he first started LAUNCH seven years ago and built it into the smashing success that it is today. The first LAUNCH Music Conference & Festival was conceived of in 2008, while participating as a panelist at a conference in Delaware.  My good friend and colleague, Rick Gadd, and I were chatting about how great a similar event would…

WATCH: The Notionaries “Excited Eyes” Music Video

The Notionaries are a band straight out of the middle of the United States, not that you would know that from their sound. Where you would expect to find banjos and lilting vocals (that is probably the most stereotypical sentence I have ever typed) you will instead hear synthetic 80s pop instrumentals under an almost Young The Giant vocal. Though this is only their first single, having formed less than a year ago, they already know the lyrical path they want to follow. In another shocking turn of events, it…

It’s all well and good wanting to look like cool guys but when you land in Austin to 75° in a pair of doc martens and black jeans with three jackets to avoid more luggage charges, you will regret it! Coming from Scotland, where I’m almost certain it has never been that warm ever, I was caught out wearing too much and looking the opposite of cool. 2. Plan your itinerary meticulously. If there are bands you really want to see when you’re at SXSW – and…

PLAYLIST: “It’s All About Vibe”

Vibe, to me, is the most intimate element of a song and recording. It is that X factor that either exists and oozes through a track or is nowhere to be found. Vibe is the element that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand straight and gives chills down my spine. Vibe is effortless, magical and most often timeless. Vibe is energy. It is that element that makes you feel the breath of the singer in your ears and allows you to almost visualize the body language of…

GUEST BLOG: 13 Musical Lessons Learned The Hard Way

13. Good enough is for losers. This lesson was one of the hardest to swallow. We all work hard creating, refining and defining our music, but understanding that good enough is detrimental to you and your success is the key to furthering you and your band. 12. Being in a band is no different than investing in the stock market. Expect losses. Expect gains. Earn windfalls. Find sustainable growth and keep it as your bread and butter, but realize that without risk, there can be no reward. Please follow and like us:

GUEST BLOG: Our Most Influential Albums

Any group of people coming together to make music are going to find some level of diversity within their band – whether it be a simple matter of taste, background, or even writing style. In the best case scenario, these differences can be used as a tool to elevate songwriting and hopefully, show a variety of influence in the finished product. Northernmost is definitely an interesting collaboration of people and even though we’ve found a common musical direction, we’ve also got a wide assortment of tastes and backgrounds that exist…
