Episode 99: So, No One Came to Your Performance Huh?

Sometimes you have to look at where you have been in order to appreciate where you are.

It is so easy to get wrapped up in the drama of the business. More people, More viewers, more followers, more ticket sales, more, more, more. That’s the nature of any type of show business. The interesting piece of this is we often put this pressure on ourselves. We have such a desire for more that when we don’t get more we are disappointed, sometimes to the point of giving up. Stop ignoring your previous success. So what you only got 1 extra follower, so what you didn’t sell out a show. Think back to when you had to beg people to come see a free show. Seriously take a hard look at your journey. Don’t you have so much to be grateful for? The pressure and expectations we place on ourselves can be detrimental to our career and our passion. Stay the course, keep going. Treasure EVERY audience member, every follower, every subscriber, every moment that you get to be on that stage.

Episode 98: How to Capture your Audience from Stage

Sometimes performers ask themselves why an audience was rude or inattentive or did not cheer for them.

The truth is, most times the performer should look at the actions on stage and how they were executed in order to answer these questions. Whenever I see someone perform, I can’t help it, the observationalist in me comes out. I watch the performers movements, timing, and audience interaction. I also watch the audience. I watch how they react to what the performer does. When the performer approaches, how they approach, what the audience feels in the moment. There are certain behaviors that get the Audience’s attention while performing on stage. When you are on stage you can use rhythm, movement, and facial expression to interact with your audience. That’s what captures them and brings them into your show, aka Stage Presence. In this episode I break down a method to engage your audience and keep their attention throughout the show. When done properly you will be able to approach, interact, and capture your audience for the duration of the show.

Episode 97: Let it Be – My Week with The Beatles

There is a powerful message for performers in this Beatles hit song. Sometimes you truly must Let it Be.

Last week I immersed myself in The Beatles. I only listened to their music and I read up on the history and some stories about them. They were, and still remain, one of the greatest performance groups of all time. But like most wonderful and incredible experiences, they had to come to an end. There was a lot of tension and Paul could tell the Band was struggling. One night he had a dream of his mother comforting him with the words Let it Be. The next morning he wrote the hit. After the album was complete, the Band did in fact break up. But the legacy they left lives on over 50 years later. Why? I truly believe it was this song. As performers, we create amazing things to share with our audience. There will come a time when it is time to move on. Whether it be to something new, taking a break, or even walking away, you must always be proud of what you have created. When you know in your heart it is time to move on, Let it Be.
