Get in on the ground floor!
A fantastic music podcast, focusing on a different musician each week. Great conversations about making music, gigging, creative drives and philosophies. First two are up now, so it's a great time to get in on something new, fresh and fun.
Great Conversations with Musicians
A great series of snapshots of conversations with musicians of all types. Largely biographical or chronological, sometimes focusing on the things that drive the people to create the music they do. It's wonderful to see such great glimpses into these musicians lives. I wish it came out daily. Thanks, Mr. Cymerman!
Really enjoyed this
I came across this podcast because I am a fan of Mike Pride's. I really enjoyed the podcast format and the sound quality was better than I expected.
