Creating a whole artist

This podcast is witty and unique in its approach to musicianship in a way that seems necessary in the world right now. Humanising and casual... with a backbone.

A fantastic podcast with musicians talking about their passions

Peering behind the curtain of celebrated - and often mysterious - musicians, you get to eavesdrop on engaging conversations about their personal interests that you'd never normally be able to hear. Top work, Best Fit guys.
