YOUR HOST IS ROD O’RILEY OF SONGSALIVE!
Rod O'Riley is the writing and performing name of Rodney Dean Stansfield. RDS is a guitar salesperson by day, songwriter by night, and many other things in the hours in between. A native of Los Angeles, raised in his parents' native Vancouver, BC, and schooled all over the West Coast. Currently learning the fine art of bass playing, producing, and letting the computer take care of the hard parts. Active as an organizer in science fiction fandom, he also keeps himself busy as an activist for animal rights, gay/lesbian/bi rights, and anarchism. And, of course, for the continued viability of live music and the venues that support it. Rodney has been involved with Songsalive! since 2002. In 2007, he was honored to assist with the creation of the new Songsalive! chapter in Orange County, California
Alethia Austin started her journey in music by writing about and reviewing unknown indie bands that played tiny venues all over Los Angeles. Hundreds of shows and many, many late nights later she joined the crew of A&R Select as an intern when the company was merely one month old. Hard work, long hours and a roaring passion for discovering bands and working with creatives helped her to become a lead player at A&R Select. After two years as VP of Operations, she decided to follow her attraction of music and film and left A&R Select to become a music supervisor. 10 films later, she am working independently on movies and tv shows, as well as consulting for 35Sound (www.35sound.com)
The Breakdown of Music Placement in Film /TV for the artist
Alethia is currently seeking songs for placement in television and film projects. Bring your best!
ABOUT CONTACTING OUR GUEST SPEAKERS IN ADVANCE OR AFTER THE WORKSHOP
Our guest speakers give their time for free to come speak to you. They all lead busy lives and are not all available to receive unsolicited correspondence or communication. It is recommended to NOT contact the speaker in advance, nor after the workshop, unless they personally want you to. That is, come to our workshop, and if during the workshop they take an interest in creating a relationship with you, then, and only then, should you further communicate. It is bad practice to assume that since a speaker has been our guest, and that you met them through Songsalive!, that they are an open door for you to contact. Please use your best and courteous judgement in making contact. Thank so much for your understanding.
