Customer Reviews

Into the mind of the artist

It's great to hear about the artistic process behind the music. Most interesting for me: some of the artists & songs that I like had less interesting interviews, while some artists that I don't initially love have had ear-opening discussions about the process, which made me respect their songs more.

Always learning

This is a great podcast for those who need to stretch outside their usual musical comfort zone. I can’t believe the depth of talent out there from all over the world. Thanks for bringing new music my way!

Insightful podcast into the creative process

I’m obsessed. I heard about this podcast when Hrishi was a guest on Getting Curious, and I’m so happy I found it. It’s great if you are interested in hearing artists talk about the creative and technical process behind songs. It’s also really well edited so it never feels like anyone is rambling about one specific element.
