Home recording and independent music makers often struggle to achieve the sound and/or career goals that they are pursuing. It's challenging to achieve "success" without mentors or guidance. For show host/creator, Samori Coles, the initial years in the music industry were overwhelming and difficult. Nevertheless, he knew that his 9 to 5 job as a financial analyst, and graduation from business school, didn't ignite his passion like creating and recording new music. Over the past twenty years, the early frustrations and defeats transformed into a successful commercial recording studio, opening an audio engineering and music production school that has trained hundreds of Millenials, Gen Xers and Gen Zers, and the launch of HomeStudioTutor.com which offers free training, premium online courses, and one-on-one coaching/mentorship. This podcast follows the stories and journeys of those who had dreams of pursuing careers as independent music creators, and ultimately bet on themselves to realize full-time careers doing what they love.
