My guest on the show today is Sheryl Crow's Music Director & guitarist Peter Stroud. Peter Stroud gets around. It’s funny how often I am flipping around the channels late at night and see Peter on stage somewhere. He’s played with Pete Droge, Sarah McLachlan and Don Henley, recorded on albums with Stevie Nicks, The Dixie Chicks, Shawn Mullins and Michelle Malone. As a guitarist and Musical Director of Sheryl Crow’s band, Peter has been a recurring player in her creative legacy going all the way back to her smash album The Globe Sessions. Alongside Sheryl, he has shared the stage with Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Prince, Chrissie Hynde and countless other musical legends. That’s a full plate by anyone’s measure, but like I said, Peter gets around. He co-founded a hugely successful guitar amplifier company, 65 Amps, and is a partner in the recently launched the Emerging Artist Network, a company that connects developing artists with brand patronage. Peter also is part of a band called Big Hat with guitarist Audley Freed and a band of killer musicians. In 2012, Big Hat self released their debut EP, with no record company involvement, so all the promotion and marketing was up to the band. The track “Feather In The Breeze” was added by fans to a couple of popular playlists on Spotify and over time, got over a MILLION plays. Because there was no record company involved, the money went straight to the band. There’s a lot of debate and mystery about where the money goes in streaming, so when I invited Peter on the show, I asked him if he could share the real numbers of what the band got paid...he gracefully agreed. I think you’ll all find this very interesting, I know I did - its not often that artists share this kind of information. Of course we riff about a ton of other stuff too - this is a good one!
