Auxoro: The Voice Of Music (@auxoro) brings you face to face with rappers, rockers, singers, industry pros, and other human beings in a podcast that dives into the story behind the music. No superficial Q&A's. No surface level song reviews. No b******t answers you can find in a Wikipedia bio. Host Zach Grossfeld interviews artists, managers, producers, and others at all different levels of the game about the things you want to know most: touring, inspirations, record deals, drugs, anxieties, money, depression, self-doubt, sexuality - the stories that matter. Take the journey with us as we explore powerful stories rooted in the experience of music makers and the things that make us human. The stage has never been closer.
