 A chat with Jesse Kinch - US Singer Songwriter and Winner of ABC's Rising Star | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4625

In Episode 14, we chat with Jesse Kinch. Jesse is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Long Island, New York, United States. He was the winner of the American Series of Rising Star which was broadcast on ABC. The show was hosted by Josh Groban, and the panel of judges was Brad Paisley, Kesha, and Ludacris. Jesse went on to sign with Capitol Records.  Jesse picked up a guitar when he was 6, after discovering an old, beat-up acoustic in his parent's basement. They began to notice a mature sense of rhythm and pitch, convincing them to buy Jesse his first electric and soon introduced him to the great rock 'n' roll bands of the 1960s, 70s, and the 90s grunge scene which he quickly embraced.  These influences became an essential part of his musical foundation and sound. At age 11, Jesse found his voice and began to sing. He soon started performing around New York City where people would take notice of his strength and conviction filled rock 'n' roll voice. Throughout the ages 12 and 13, he also became interested in writing his own songs which regularly became part of his set during shows.  Jesse was the opening act for the 80s rock band Living Colour and the headlining act at the "Rock For Haiti" benefit concert on Long Island. After winning Rising Star in 2014, Jesse began performing sold-out shows in New York and Nashville. In 2015, Jesse performed two songs on ABC's ''Dancing With The Stars''.  In early 2016, Jesse signed a record deal with Curb Records and quickly went into the studio that summer to record his long-awaited debut album. His album was recorded at Cove City Sound and Tiki Recording studios on Long Island. On March 16, 2018, Jesse announced the release of two music video releases of his original song "Preaching Like The Pope" and his cover of Michael Jacksons Billie Jean'. The songs continue to garner popularity and attention on Rock radio all around the country. In April, Jesse went on a short New York tour to promote the release of his debut album "I'm Not Like Everybody Else" on vinyl. The tour was followed by a number of performances in "Los Angeles", CA, and 'Nashville', Tennessee. In June, his album was officially released on all platforms. Throughout the year of 2019, Jesse and his band performed in many different states including 'North Carolina'' ''Colorado'', and ''Missouri'', and eventually made his debut overseas performance in England.  At the beginning of 2020, Jesse announced new tour dates in a number of different states and has also dropped hints about new music.  Links: www.jessekinch.com Follow The Entertainment Engine for weekly news & updates.

 The Pros and Cons of Independent labels vs Major record labels for artists and bands | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1057

In Episode 13 we look into the pros and cons of independent labels vs major labels for artists and bands, discussing everything from - What makes a record label 'indie'? to what are artist-friendly record label deals? When it comes to getting a record deal, finding the right fit and structure with a label is crucial — but is an indie or a major record company a better overall fit for you? Firstly, you will need to know the difference’s between a major and independent record label. The common perception of a “record label” is one of the major record labels, located in London, Los Angeles or New York, which signs all of the major artists and bands. These major record labels, including Sony, Warner, EMI, Capitol, and Universal Records, are major corporations with hundreds of millions of dollars behind them to support projects they choose too. This allows them to fully fund the biggest artists out there. In the eyes of emerging artists, a record deal with a major label was always the big prize to go after. However, the major music industry is on life-support with the introduction of online social networks (Facebook, Twitter) and digital music retail stores such as iTunes & Amazon. The fact that major releases are often leaked to the internet weeks before their release day. Enter the Indie (short for Independent) record label.
