IT'S FINALLY HERE! This podcast has been an idea I've been sitting on for quite a while and finally it's time to get it off the ground! I am a singer songwriter when I'm not in the radio studio. I've spent most of my life around music in some capacity; playing in bands, playing acoustic, playing fests, bars, touring, etc. Music is something I'm extremely passionate about and all the guests you'll hear on this show match that level of love for writing songs. Throughout this podcast you're going to hear from both signed and unsigned artists, producers, and songwriters across all genres. The conversations will, hopefully, dive into their creative process, tips and tricks of the trade, the trials and tribulations of the industry and a tour story or two to cap it off. Good people, good conversation that hopefully allows you to learn something about songwriting or, at the very least, keeps you entertained. Episode one is here. Let's go.
John Gurney is my very first guest on the show. We've crossed paths quite a few times, especially in 2019 and he was gracious enough to swing by the podcast studio and open up about his time in Nashville, what it's like being an independent artist, his songwriting do's and don'ts, travel woes getting to and from shows, his new single "Drink I Think" and more. As another native of IL, I couldn't think of a better person to kick this whole podcast of with. Please enjoy the conversation and thank you for giving this thing a chance! - @Traceahamilton
