Identity Crisis and The End of AfroDJMac: Music Production Podcast #114
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;" -Shakespeare
I've decided to drop the name AfroDJMac and move forward using my actual name, Brian Funk. I've wrestled with artist names for a while and decided to just drop it. The result has been surprisingly liberating.
In this episode, we talk about artist names, why we have, and if we even need them. I'll go over why I adopted one in the first place and why I've now let it go. I have some ideas about what makes a good artist name (none of which I have actually followed myself) and question the whole concept of even having artist names.
