‘be noble’ Founder Brittni Noble on songwriting, music publishing & sync licensing. Plus, a lively chat with Kelly V & Anvil’s Steve “Lips” Kudlow about their personal stories & friendship
First up this week, Mike chats with Brittni Noble, a professional songwriter and the founder of Canada’s newest boutique music publisher and sync licensing company, Be Noble. Brittni recounts her own experiences as a young songwriter working in the industry, what a good publisher should do for its artists, the pros and cons of major vs. boutique publishers, the licensing process for music in TV, and a bunch more.
Then Mike shares a unique and quite varied chat he had with Kelly V and Anvil’s Steve “Lips” Kudlow, who together host the “Rockn Token Talkn” show. Kelly shares her harrowing personal health story, which has made her a passionate advocate for others suffering from rare illnesses, and also how it led her to a friendship with Lips and life in Canada’s heavy metal music industry. Lips, a truly wonderful character as you’ll hear, also has some great stories about the cult classic documentary ‘Anvil! The Story of Anvil’ and his life in the music business.
