New music video: https://youtu.be/VrtY3S4fgEw Rich's most successful song to date, has been his cover of "Snow Miser vs. Heat Miser" from his first album, ‘Santa’s Rockin’ Band,’ which was released soon after his first university graduation in the days before Spotify and online music sales and streaming. Once iTunes hit, and later Spotify, “Snow Miser vs. Heat Miser” began to really resonate with people and rise in popularity. It has since been downloaded over 18,000 times in the last ten years and streamed approximately 900,000 times in the past three. The song became the cornerstone of his 2020 ‘Santa’s Rockin’ Band’ album reboot, which also included a newly penned original, “It’s Christmas Time (All Over the World),” which went on to attain over 250,000 streams on Spotify alone in the last two months of 2020. Fall of 2021 will see the release of “High School Can’t Last Forever,” a rocker that merges the sounds of Buddy Holly and Green Day to explore the notion of what really constitutes youth and innocence. ... and this is merely the beginning! Chambers has countless single and album releases planned for well into 2022! #RichChambers #SnowMiservsHeatMiser #punk 0:00 Intro 3:10 Rich's background 18:30 Defining success 26:19 Release cadence 36:00 Simple is better 38:00 Lifestyle: Sleep 41:24 Lifestyle: Mindfulness & meditation 42:00 Lifestyle: How do you define yourself? 44:00 Practice: Time of day 48:00 Implications of tech in music 57:43 Practice: Maximum effective duration 1:04:00 Practice: Injury 1:11:45 Creativity: Steps to stay creative 1:13:11 Creativity: Time of day 1:13:50 Songwriting: Inspiration 1:14:30 Performance anxiety #musicians #songwriter #songwriters #composers #musicmajor #musicmajors #musiceducator #musiceducators #musiceducation #podcast #thebestmusicpodcast #clips #musicpodcast #singer #guitarist #guitarplayer #trombonist #trumpet #violin #viola #cello #bass #brass #trombone #mandolin #banjo #drums #percussion #timpani #marimba #oboe #sax #saxophone #clarinet #basoon #alto #soprano #tenor #piano #keyboard #musicians #songwriter #songwriters #composers #musicmajor #musiceducator #musicpodcast #singersongwriter #musiceducation #singer #trumpet #violin #viola #cello #bass #trombone #musiclife #musicmaker #musicteacher #drums #percussion #saxophone #clarinet #guitar #piano #podcast #thebestmusicpodcast #musicislife #musicindustry #PandoraPodcasts Logo, Intro Video, and Branding: Arron Leishman Audio and Video: Zach Ramey zacherylramey@gmail.com Dan's Thumbnail Photo: John Mollura Photography
