As I mentioned in the notes for part one of this interview, I am not keeping things in the same order as we did them live on the stream. In this segment you will get to hear something we kept going back too, how the Internet community, mainly Google Plus, impacted these to artist in a positive way. One of the things that I am sure every listener will notice is that Daria Musk and RAM really appreciate their fans and the Google Plus community.
I have often mentioned that what I enjoy the most about being a podcaster is being the middle man between the artists and the listeners. However, with today’s recent tech advances, that particular role may well be on it’s way to obsolescence. Musicians can now simply interact directly with listeners… even perform hangout concerts on the Internet… I so love the new media order.
One of my favorite bloggers, Amy Gahran, once wrote an nice post about the fact that we do not actually live in an “information age”. She, very correctly in my opinion, noted that a better term would be that we are in a “connection age“… think about that as you listen to this podcast.
In this segment, you will hear:
- Jeff ask Daria and RAM about how being “tech savy” helped with their current notoriety, the answer was not what he expected
- How music of the world impacted their music and, how the world now made their music known
- Two songs from Daria “”Ghost” and “Plus 1 Me”
- What is Google Plus
Be sure and check out her website her Google Plus profile for more information about her next hangout concert which shall be 20 August,2011 at 6 PM EST. The music is great and the fan-artist interaction is even better. You can check out RAM’s profile as well for he is just as talented and kewl. You can hear Daria’s music and RAM’s music on their respective SoundCloud Pages. You can catch some videos of Daria and RAM performing on their previous hangout concert at Daria’s YouTube Page.
