Seas. 3 - Ep. 10 - Getting a Record Deal, Sponsorships and Making Great Music as a Rising Band with Crossing I's Dotting T's
I am going to be speaking with Matt Mucerino from the Orange County alternative rock band Crossing I’s Dotting T’s today.
The band has been releasing singles this year in anticipation of putting out a full-length album out later this year. In fact, I haven’t told Matt this, as it may go right to his head, but their single “All Feelings Aside” is currently my favorite song of the year, and I have listened to thousands of songs and many of my favorite artists are getting topped by me saying that.
But it’s the damn truth.
So, to steal a line from that song and get out of this intro, I will just say, “I don’t wanna be here anymore,” and let’s start the show!
Intro Music: "Colorado" by Birds Love Filters
Outro Music: "Snail Mail" by Speedway Sleeper
