About This Show
As both a performer and listener of music, I am always dying to know more about the people behind the music itself. Mainly how did they get to where they are today, OR what are the ideas and concepts that are constantly driving their work I feel that there is something missing in most interviews with musicians today They always end up being too scripted, too stunted and unnatural, and what I want to do here is engage them in a much deeper way. What I have found so far, is that if we listen to musicians speak about their work, we can begin to understand more clearly what music is all about. Join me in my endless curiosity and listen to what these musicians have to say.
