Love This

Great Podcast. So many cool guests.

Must listen for any fans of local music

All About The Song is a great podcast that has introduced me to countless artists that I probably wouldn’t have otherwise found on my own. He’s got an amazing catalogue of podcasts with some influential artists. Aside from being about “the song” the podcast takes some deep dives into movers and shakers within the industry and professional musicians. I would suggest this to anyone who calls themselves a fan of music.
