Best slice of performers/ musician / artist life.
Best slice of performers/ musician / artist life. Slightly an abridged version of Song Exploder, but rather than exploring one song, On The Margin takes in the artists life, process, and linking of music to the realities that all creatives live. At first I wanted more, not only a 5 minute taste of the artists work and process, but now I feel like it is the perfect amount of time. It also makes me excited and confident about talking more with fellow artists and musicians / performers about their work, and the decisions they make along the way to get where they end up.
****I did binge listen to all the episodes in two days, and I am in desperate need of more.
