Introducing Make It Loud : A New Music Business Live Panel Discussion Series

Introducing MAKE IT LOUD, a new live panel discussion series on how to make it as a new artist in today’s music industry. Hosted by Stephen Chilton and Jeff Taylor of Psyko Steve Presents, MAKE IT LOUD will be a monthly series of talks with a curated lineup of special guests. The guests will include industry figures in Arizona’s music business, as well as established musicians on a wide range of topics aimed at helping new artists learn how to navigate an ever changing music industry.

The first talk in the MAKE IT LOUD series, titled “Getting Started,” will be a conversation about the first steps a band or artist should take, and what decisions to avoid – on any issue ranging from marketing to booking, building a band to recording, and more. Chilton and Taylor will be joined by guests Nicole Laurenne, Chelsey Louise, and Kyle Dehn.

PSP 2019 New Years Resolutions

At Psyko Steve Presents, we have fairly modest resolutions for this new year. The purpose of our resolutions is simple – we want to do more to help support and promote local artists and musicians than we ever have before.

This endeavor started with Steve in high school helping friends put on shows Downtown Phoenix at Modified Arts. At the time, the goal was just to throw a few shows with friends, for friends. Over time that idea grew, and the shows became more frequent. Gradually those local shows helped turn “Psyko Steve Presents” into real company. 

Last year our team presented nearly 600 shows with over 1200 artists, a large number of those being local. This month we are presenting the largest event we have ever produced – the second 8123 Fest – an event headlined and curated by local group The Maine. It is not lost on us that some of the largest events we have produced have been based around home grown talent.

Here are a few resolutions we are working on, the details of which we plan to announce in the coming weeks:  Read More
