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
