Getting Prolific with Recording Artist, Jerome Arab-Ep.23

Jason and Chris catch up before Chris puts Jason through the paces with a quiz on the most prolific artists. Then the two talk with Zimbabwean-born UK recording artist Jerome Arab. His music has produced half a million streams, and he has set the ambitious goal to produce a track a week in 2021. However, Jason immediately takes the conversation off to Rugby and makes strong attempts at linking his comments to the topic. Jerome talks about how he moved from Zimbabwe and Zambia at a young age to Manchester, how he realized the arts and music specifically spoke to him at a young age, and shares the construct he uses to find creativity and flow in anything. Jason inquires how Jerome’s perspective can help his golf game, and Jerome has an answer! Chris inquires about Jerome's pressure on himself and how he manages the pressure to create in volume. Jerome explains his mindset and motivation that helps him through writer’s block. Jason applies Jerome’s method to the business world, which transitions the group to talk about the business of music and the importance of considering the pros and cons of working with labels. Then, in a natural turn in the conversation, Jason debunks an important myth about certain business entities. Jerome then provides an unexpected take about the modern music business, being entrepreneurial, and the importance of marketing skills. Jerome Arab’s music is available on many platforms such as Spotify, Amazon Music, and Apple Music. Quiz soundtrack, Giulia's Chase, © 2020 by Casting Nail. ...
