Daniel Stidham of Raid The Quarry, headshotWelcome to another rewind episode of the Unstarving Musician. What is a rewind episode? It is an abridged version of a prior episode, intended to hone in on something I found particularly interesting and worthy of repackaging. This rewind features Daniel Stidham of Raid The Quarry, a modern rock band out of Raleigh, NC. 

Daniel Stidham first appeared on the Unstarving Musician in May of 2019. As a side note, while reviewing our first conversation, I noticed it was in need of additional editing. I actually laughed out loud at one part, which I saved as an Easter egg ending for this episode. So I've re-edited our conversation from 2019. If you like this rewind version, press pause and find our first conversation in episode 132. But you'll have to hear the end of this episode for the mentioned Easter egg.

Back to this version of my talk with Daniel Stidham of Raid The Quarry. Here are the topics I pulled from our 2019 conversation. Daniel and I talk about his band's then record label, the marketing minds in Raid The Quarry, their release strategy, co-writing, the music business of hard rock, audience development, making videos, and the release supporting activity Daniel and his bandmates did for their 2019 release.

It looks like Daniel and Raid The Quarry released another album in 2022, which sounds quite good. Find all the places to listen at

Please enjoy this rewind edition of my 2019 conversation with Daniel Stidham of Raid The Quarry.
