Between The Buried And Me's Paul Waggoner Shares Advice With Young Metal Musicians
In a free ranging discussion with Great New Metal founder and publisher Brian Shields, Between The Buried And Me's Paul Waggoner let's young musicians know that is takes more than just advanced software in a bedroom studio to earn the attention of metal fans.
"If you're going to commit yourself to being a musician, particularly in this genre, it's a blue-collar job," Waggoner tells Shields in a conversation recorded at San Francisco's Fillmore venue. "You have to get out there. You have to get on the road. You have to tour. You have to work hard. You have to hit the streets and play shows and people's basements and whatever you have to do to show people that you play your instruments and that you're not just a recording. You're a band."
Waggoner says that's one of the reasons he's joined other established metal musicians, such as Paul Masvidal (Cynic) and Brian Fair (Shadowsfall) in supporting Great New Metal, a music journalism project designed to create a buzz around up and coming metal bands, growing their audience, and helping them to monetize that new fan base.
