Releasing a Song Every Week: Todd Barriage of Theatria

Do you release a new song every month, all year long? Probably not.

We’ve all heard that’s what an artist has to do to become “successful” these days, but so few end up following through and actually releasing music that frequently.

But some artists take it to the next level – Todd Barriage of Theatria, who we spoke with on episode 81, has been releasing songs weekly for the past four months.

Listen now to learn how you can shift into the right mindset to forge ahead to release a new song at least once a month!

What you’ll learn:

  • How to give a concise and clear explanation of what you do
  • How you can record a great sounding track in two days
  • What to do when the universe sucker punches you in the face
  • When it’s ok to release “YouTube quality” music
  • Where you can find inspiration in non-traditional sources
  • Why it’s important to push forward quickly, before fear sets in
  • How to balance quality and quantity
  • How you can write a song in four hours
  • Why your “aesthetic” doesn’t always matter
