Suave’s New Music Biz Podcast “Musician Middle Class” Episode 1

10320609_1377914962533956_88451929907765650_n

The new podcast Musician Middle Class, created and hosted by veteran professional musicians Nate “Suave” Cameron and Kevin Seal, is focused on supporting working class musicians who are opposed to the outdated “feast-or-famine” model of the music business. This monthly show caters to artists who are looking for ways to network with other like-minded musicians, support themselves financially, and feed their families rather than pining for some elusive pie-in-the-sky major label advance. The podcast also features newly-discovered music from working-class artists all over the world.

The first episode, titled “Who, What, When, Why”, introduces listeners to the show’s concept by delving deeper into the purpose behind it. By hearing some of the hosts’ original musical creations, listeners will learn more about the show’s creators, and why creative independence is imperative to them. Suave and Seal will also share their perspectives on the independent rock music scene of the show’s home base, Berkeley, CA.

This episode features the first of a segment called, “N.A.N” (or “New And Nice”) that showcases a 30-second snippet of three to five songs on a newly released album from any genre…

Tunes from this episode:

N.A.N. Album of The Month:

Independence, interdependence, solidarity, building communities, building a sustainable economy for working musicians.

(New Single!) Suave x Prospek – “For My People”

forMyPeopleArtHip Hop Soul and Funk duo, Suave x Prospek  are back with the leading single for their upcoming album, Politics of Love and Life. These New Orleans natives, recent Cincinnati transplants, and Guerilla Publishing Company (GPC) co-founders bring their award-winning blend of live, funky drum breaks, soulful melodies, and social awareness to the topic of unity among the masses. “For My People” serves to empower the independent artist community and those impoverished (especially in the the state of Louisiana) to mobilize against generational political corruption. It serves as a call to action and solidarity for those seeking equality and freedom in and out of the music industry, as well as a cease and desist letter to opportunistic music executives. And, most poignantly, it’s a notice to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and his statewide political machine of corruption that their divisive tactics won’t work against a growing population of conscious young artists and their contemporaries. The song is combined with a short excerpt from a speech given by Angela Davis in 1975 on the empowerment and fair treatment of oppressed people of the Unites States.

“November 1971, a month that included a shootout with the police on Piety Street, the creation of survival programs, and the daylong standoff between the Panthers and 250 police equipped with a tank in the Desire housing development. It perfectly captures the songs spirit of Rebellion, Resistance, and Revolution.” – N. Cameron
