I Want to Play Clubs that Pay Me. How Do I Do That?
I wish all musicians would just stop playing for free because it undermines the people willing to “say, yes I would love to play at your club, now let’s talk about the guarantee.”
But since that’s not going to happen, let me tell you personally how to get paid.
It’s a lot to juggle, but my advice for others who have many irons in the fire is this: take it one day at a time. There will be moments when things are pressing and demand your attention, and moments when you can breathe more easily. Take that laid-back time to imagine your next steps and plan carefully. There is a balance to everything, and balance is the key to my sanity, without a doubt.

“This record is my statement about living a life that is in line with my deepest passions. Life is short and I don’t want to waste a minute being a smaller version of myself. I’m just trying to hold true to my best self and serve the artist inside.”
An arresting confluence of soaring melodies, lush harmonies, and driving indie rock, the ep is the band’s most collaborative work yet, bearing the distinctive writing influence and unique sonic sensibilities of all four members (lead singer/guitarist Max Rainer, bassist/vocalist Colton Dearing, guitarist/vocalist Tyler Wimpee, and drummer Justin Kila). recorded with production mastermind Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes), ‘favors’ marks the dawn of a new era for Tulsa rockers Wilderado, as their already-epic sound pushes into more nuanced and mature territory than ever before.

We were previously writing specifically to briefs for TV and film pitches. The writing change allowed us to explore more ideas outside of our own personal boxes. It was something more than what came natural to us on our personal projects. Zach and I finished writing the record last July and realized we had something pretty cool on our hands.
