Shawn Milke’s band Alesana had been touring almost non-stop since 2004 when he decided to tap the brakes and get off the road for a bit. This resulted in the creation of Revival Recordings, which lives by the inspirational mantra “Good Music By Good People.” Now with distribution through Artery/Sony Red, the label continues to grow and prosper despite the indie business climate.
Shawn also published his first novel Annabel last year, and hopes to launch the Revival Rock School later this year. He’s an interesting guy and we had a great talk on the latest episode #155.
On the intro I take a look at the great revenue numbers of the U.S. music business last year (there’s a lot of people jumping for joy), and at the 10 most important criteria for an assistant engineer (or studio owner).
