[RECAP] Peter Cincotti. Steven, Alan, and Melissa are back in the San Diego studio recapping Peter Cincotti’s interview from this past Tuesday.

Peter was the youngest jazz musician to reach #1 on the Billboard Jazz Charts and collaborations with Phil Ramone, Harry Connick Jr., and David Foster, Peter is now a free agent looking to get his Creative Hustle back out there to the masses. He’s been working on his latest album “Long Way From Home” for 3 years. He built a studio and moved all his pianos to the Jersey Shore… where he spent the summer’s growing up as a kid. He took the time to learn the tech side of the business and produced this whole album, and we are stoked to be supporting him along his journey.

00:40 Recap of the interview and how working with music giants and reaching #1 on the Billboard Jazz paved the way to success. 

5:04 Why learning the tech part the business is important for creative independence.

9:07 2 tips for Creative Hustler’s to take to the bank. 1. Having “Faith.” What does that mean? And 2. Persistence – which is the sustained effort necessary to induce faith.

Resource mentioned: Think and Grow Rich. Guys, this book is under $9. It will change you, and the way you think about life, money, success, failures, faith, etc, etc, etc. I highly recommend not only reading it, but keeping as a resource on your bedside table.

16:09 The music industry has changed in the past 30 years. Does anyone remember MTV when it was really MTV?

19:36 Why having a tribe is important when building a brand.

20:00 Check out Peter’s wacky Goodnight videos on Instagram. Sorry for putting you on blast, man, but you crack us up! Plus, you have some pretty sexy videos too. 😉

20:46 Peter’s Pledge – Help a brother out! This is an awesome example of how musicians are connecting and communicating with their audiences on a personal level.

21:18 Although, we still don’t know what tomatoes Peter uses in your sauce. We’re so freaking curious about this.

28:57 Peter is selling his Sauce on his Pledge Music site. Alan challenges a sauce off between Steven and Peter. Who wants to see this shit?
