I am a two-time Emmy Award-winning composer, and Juno Award-winning jazz pianist and educator. As a composer, I specialize in writing, arranging, and producing memorable, custom-made music for t.v., film & other media. I consider myself an "artistic problem solver": I strive to get to the essential conceptual truth of what the client is looking for - and to express it in a creative and supportive way.

A chat with Andrew Dubber of New Music Strategies

I was delighted to have had a chance recently to sit down and finally chat in person with New Music Strategies guru Andrew Dubber when he was in town attending the CMJ Music Marathon Conference. For those unaware, Andrew is arguably one of the foremost thinkers on what we all need to be doing to operate as musicians in this Web 2.0 age (you can download his free e-book on the subject here). Our conversation covered such wide-ranging subject matter as Creative Commons and music copyright, the meaning of the seemingly new business models introduced by such artists as Radiohead and Prince, the controversy over Gerd Leonard's "Music Like Water" idea, my own Artistshare website and strategies for selling digital vs. physical content, plus building fan relationships and more.
