Today’s guest, Toronto musician Carmen has been performing and recording for the past 11 years. It hasn’t been easy. Since childhood, Carmen has had to deal with crippling anxiety and phobias. Included among them: Frequent panic attacks that can strike at any time and a terrible fear of travelling.

Episode 8: "Mix Tape Pen Pals", Neil McDonald, Music Producer/Engineer
Neil is a Toronto-based music producer, engineer, and soundtrack composer. Above all, Neil is a class-A music obsessive. If we somehow lost all records of music history, he would be an ideal man to hire to help us patch together what happened and how. I caught up with Neil at an interesting time. He had just been laid off from his job at a studio he worked at which helped financed his other projects. He called it a “ jolt to the system” but that was a good thing he said. It was forcing him to open up and look around for what else the world had to offer. He's been willing and wanting to discover what else was out there since he began listening and deconstructing to his brother's 70s hard rock record collection at the age of 5. At the age of 11 he embarked on a lifelong pursuit of new music through the the help of a very unique pen pal relationship. We cover that and more on this episode of Alice: The Creativity Podcast.

Episode 7: "Ice Cream & A Couple of Chords" Laura and Greg, Musicians
One of my favourite indie pop duos in NY, Laura and Greg. I caught up with them on the eve of their new album release “Grey Shark Canyon” and their trip down to SXSW. Laura is also one of the co-owners of the amazing Van Leeuwen ice cream trucks and shops in NY and L.A. Greg also works as a visual artist so we chat about his newest project, how working in other arts and business ventures help both of them in supporting creativity, the importance of saying yes to things when you’re in a band, and navigating gratitude and frustration when you’re pursuing a career in the arts.
