Musician Horror Stories

Imagine you wake in a strange dimension and realize you’ve been transformed into…

… an independent musician!!! 🙀🙀🙀

Scary, right?

In this Halloween-themed episode of the DIY Musician Podcast, we tell musician horror stories. The kinds that are common amongst indie artists, plus a few uncommonly strange and disastrous stories submitted by listeners.

You’ll hear cautionary tales about:

  • Signing bad contracts
  • Producers claiming to own your music
  • Misalignment with your manager or agent
  • Spending too much and hating the results
  • Hard drive crashes!
  • Stolen trailers, stolen gear
  • Conflict with collaborators and bandmates
  • Bad press meltdowns
  • Live concert mishaps
  • Becoming a Frankenstein of ego and insecurity
  • The most embarrassing soundcheck ever
  • Holding bandmates hostage… literally
  • Awkward interviews
  • Drunken accidents, head injuries, and more
  • Getting lost (on stage!)
  • A burning bus
