My guest this week is musician, rapper and entrepreneur Chris Greenwood, who goes by the stage name of Manafest.
Chris has released 8 critically acclaimed studio albums that have either won or been nominated for a host of GMA and Juno awards, and he’s self-financed his last 3 projects with crowdfunding campaigns.
Chris has also written a book and created a number of online music business courses designed to help up and coming musicians learn the ropes, based on his experiences.
One of the best parts of our conversation was about the limitations and advantages of performing to iPod backing tracks, and the transition to using a live band.
In the intro I’ll take a look at cover song recordings being removed from popular online sites like iTunes and Spotify, and a study that describes how your music matches your personality (or vice versa).
