Martin Potts (UK Artist Relations - Paiste, Vic Firth & Mapex) #44

Ep. 44
Thanks for checking out episode 44 with Martin Potts who works for the distributor KORG UK in a role as UK Artist Relations for Paiste, Vic Firth & Mapex drums but also has control of the marketing for Mapex in the UK.In this episode, Martin and I chat about his history of playing drums which included him reaching grade 8 at a young age, but sadly due to problems with arthritis couldn't persue much in his playing career. So we naturally discussed his journey of working within the musical instruments industry and how he started working in a drum shop and has worked his way up in the world of musical instrument distribution within multiple companies to where he is today and how the industry has changed over the years.We also discussed some interesting topics such as artist endorsements and what Artist Relations at drum companies look for in new artists and how artists should initially approach them with regards to applications etc. Martin also talked about how he organises the marketing side of things for Mapex including social media content and how difficult it can be to get it right. Overall, a really interesting conversation from another side of the drum world that doesn't often get covered on this show.I hope you enjoy this free episode, please subscribe to the podcast via your podcast provider & YouTube, like and review where you can and share with anyone else who might be interested.If you've enjoyed any of my episodes, please consider joining my Patreon community via Patreon at http://www.patreon.com/drumforthesong/ for access to exclusive content, group video calls, competitions, giveaways plus 20% discount at http://www.motorhead-beer.comI'd like to give a special thanks to my top-tier 'Groove Master' Patrons for their extended support.

Ep. 42
Thanks for checking out episode 42 of Drum For The Song podcast featuring the insanely talented Anika Nilles who has taken the drum community by storm over the past decade after being 'discovered' on YouTube, within a few years being the cover artist for Modern Drummer Magazine and most recently touring as the drummer for none other than the guitar legend himself, Jeff Beck!In this episode, Anika and I have a great chat about her history with the drums and how she was encouraged to play by her parents at 6 years old and how she got the recent gig with Jeff Beck and what it was like touring with him and Johnny Depp across the UK and Europe and how she had to play most of the tour with an injured right foot which led to her having to learn the set by using just her left foot for the bass drum. She also has some great advice for drummers who would like to get more comfortable with odd time signatures and reveals some of her favourite musicians and inspirations.Visit https://www.anikanilles.com/ for more information about Anika.https://www.facebook.com/AnikaNilles/http://www.instagram.com/anika.nillesPlease subscribe to the podcast via your podcast provider & YouTube.If you've enjoyed any of my episodes, please consider joining my Patreon community via Patreon at http://www.patreon.com/drumforthesong/ for access to exclusive content, giveaways plus 20% discount at http://www.motorhead-beer.comI'd like to give a special thanks to my top-tier 'Groove Master' Patrons for their extended support.
