The Naked Vibes Show features conversations with musicians, artists & healers to ignite your creative genius & elevate you in your spiritual growth.
This episode features musician/songwriter, Reggie Rueffer of Spot (rock band formerly with Interscope Records) & touring violinist for Charlie Pride. His other bands/projects include The Hochimen & Mildred. In this radio archive, Reggie joined me in the studio to play live & to share his insights on the creative process. Some spicey conversation ensues.
2:34 - SONG: "Hymn" from the Heaven, the novel Soundtrack. Written & performed by Reggie Rueffer. This special version is only available on the complimentary CD that comes with the book.
7:57 - Story of how “Hymn” came to be. Reggie talks, with humor, about how easily he was able to write about religious issues mixed with sexual issues - & with the added challenge of writing from a woman’s perspective.
10:40 - Example of how creative ideas are not our own, but are shared universally.
11:03 - Sexual repression brought on by outside forces shapes our relationships & ability to express ourselves.
11:56 - Sexual energy can be channeled through artistry & music. Great examples - Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots) & Prince.
13:08 - SONG - LIVE PERFORMANCE: “Brush with Religion” - Tierra del Gato - Hochimen.
17:33 - Reggie & his brother, Chad, performed on the Local Honey Holiday Mix show with my sister, Kelly, & me. Reggie’s favorite part of the night was when we did “Noelle Nouvelet” as Brothers & Sisters.
18:34 - Broad range of musical influences & perspectives - classical training from SMU + rock star bands Mildred (XTC-inspired rock ’n roll) & Spot.
19:17 - Mildred lyrics were inspired by Reggie’s experience as a Christian.
19:54 - Perceptions of Frankly Scarlet, the band I shared with my sister, were often that it was a Christian band because we sang about Love & Consciousness. You can't remove who you are from your art.
20:38 - Expanding, through art, leads to places that are larger than religion. Music helps people connect on deeper levels.
20:56 - Great pop songs have always been written about “boy meets girl”. Reggie originally wrote more about the issues of the day.
21:36 - True that you’re perfectly who you are. Perfectly human. Mistakes & all
