Wayne G Miller: Clarity in Choice, Scarcity Mindset, and Why the Song Always Wins

This week's guest is producer, bassist, musical director and songwriter Wayne G Miller. Wayne has performed with or acted as musical director for a range of artists including Mike Posner, Christina Perri, AlunaGeorge, and Snakehips. He now produces and writes for various artists, both major label and independent, and mentors up and coming artists. We had a great conversation about touring, transitioning from the road to producing in the studio, battling the scarcity mindset, the importance of working on music you love, and having clarity on why you take a gig.

In this episode, we'll dig in on...

  • A great song supersedes everything
  • Underestimating the relational factor of getting a gig
  • Quoting jobs
  • Battling the scarcity mindset
  • Transitioning from MD to producer
  • Playing late night shows as rite of passage
  • Starting out in Portland and moving to LA

About the Podcast

Progressions: Success in the Music Industry
Interviews highlighting successful careers in music and breaking down the steps it took to achieve their goals.
I do not believe the people who have thriving careers and fulfilling lives in music can look back and attribute it all to “luck”. At some point in their career they committed themselves to a goal and took steps to achieve that goal. That's what Progressions is here to highlight. We will set you up for success by bringing you an array of interviews with guests from all parts of the industry. By focusing on identifying significant steps and turning points in their careers we hope to inspire you to set big goals for yourself and by doing so design the music career that you've always dreamed of.
