How Not To Suck At Livestreams, And Other Performance Matters – Interview With John M.

Musicians, let’s be honest with ourselves. Most of us suck at doing livestreams. It’s not entirely our fault. Technology isn’t our main medium, and we had no time to prepare for this before pandemic, nor was anyone one around to teach us. But in a good way, it’s forced us to look at what we’re doing well and not well as performers in general. For example, do you know how to read your audience? Do you know why some of your songs go over better with an audience than others? And now, do you play to the camera or ignore the camera? 

My guest in this episode, John Mollenhauer, is probably the first musician that I know of to start his own livestream show… and that was over four years ago. So not only is he an expert in this topic, he’s also a veteran live performer and author of his own book about liver performance called Performance Matters. If only we all had seen this pandemic coming, we could have gone to him for advice earlier. But nonetheless, he’s got some great lessons learned to share, and the second half of this interview will get into some of the technical aspects of doing a decent live-stream show, which I’m sure just about everyone listening will gain something from. So before you go blowing your next paycheck on new gear and wigs (if that’s your thing), spend this next half hour with John.
