Travis Ference: Live Six Month Anniversary AMA Episode

This week's guest is our very own host Travis Ference. To celebrate six months of Progressions: Success in the Music Industry we invited our prior interviewee, Damian Taylor, to guest host a live Ask Me Anything episode. Damian asks listener submitted questions (as well as some of his own) to Travis in this reverse interview. The interview originally aired live on Damian's Twitch channel. We had a great time and covered everything from our host's backstory and career path to how the podcast came about and the mindset and habits he uses to help balance his time.

In this episode, we'll dig in on...

  • Traditional studio path vs DIY studio path
  • Getting better everyday
  • Learning from your setbacks
  • Working at Capitol Studios
  • Starting a podcast
  • Quitting salaried engineering jobs
  • Clearing your mind through exercise
  • Getting over putting yourself out there
  • Not fearing "No"
  • Engineering pop vocal sessions

About the Podcast

Progressions: Success in the Music Industry
Interviews highlighting successful careers in music and breaking down the steps it took to achieve their goals.
I do not believe the people who have thriving careers and fulfilling lives in music can look back and attribute it all to “luck”. At some point in their career they committed themselves to a goal and took steps to achieve that goal. That's what Progressions is here to highlight. We will set you up for success by bringing you an array of interviews with guests from all parts of the industry. By focusing on identifying significant steps and turning points in their careers we hope to inspire you to set big goals for yourself and by doing so design the music career that you've always dreamed of.
