Love this podcast
I love the insight from musicians! Their stories from the road!
Insightful interviews with Americana artists
Zach has settled into a nice groove with his interviews of Americana artists as he crosses paths with them at festivals and on the road with his band Dustbowl Revival. He has the ability to engage other musicians through his experiences and allows the artists to provide insights into their creative processes, influences, and a look into their life on the road.
I’ve enjoyed his interviews and the song at the end of the interview is like tasty frosting on a piece of cake (chocolate of course).
Love this podcast, wonderful host.
