How to Collaborate As A Band with Couch
Episode Summary –
Working as a band is an incredibly fulfilling experience for musicians. It gives them the chance to combine their talents and create something unique, which can't be achieved by going solo. By joining forces, bands can maximize each other's strengths and specific skills to form something truly special and effective. Not only does it make creating music more enjoyable, but it also offers the opportunity to expand their fan base and get more recognition than ever before.
“Groups have the power to make great things happen! Pooling your talents and expertise allows you to be more productive and work towards common goals.”
The power of numbers and diversified specializations gives a group or band an edge. With a wide range of skills within the collective, tasks can be done in-house that typically require outsourcing and cost money. Being successful as an artist requires not only hard work and talent, but also being great to work with and finding sustainable solutions for yourself and those around you.
In this episode, we follow the story of the band “Couch”. We learn about their journey to success, from meeting each other in college to transitioning after graduation. We also get a glimpse into their growth as a long-distance band. Tune in to find out what it takes to create something amazing – respect for one another, curiosity, and patience! Learn how they were able to dream big and shoot for the stars in order to go from good to great.

About Couch –
Couch is a Boston-based band.
Couch infuses pop with funk, rock, and R&B/soul. Their vibrant sound is further defined by the members’ backgrounds in jazz, a cappella, and musical theatre.
Until Spring 2021, Couch members were scattered across the country at various universities; they tackled the challenges of being a “long-distance” band, writing and even recording virtually for three years.
The band injects each track with their signature flavor: expressive horns, warm vocals, and bubbling synths—crafting an oasis of joy for musicians and non-musicians alike.
