Had it not been for the introduction of podcasts into my life, my second album could well have been ready six months sooner. Who knows, maybe even seven. The world of podcasts has been an extremely welcome and comforting distraction from reality. Listening to interesting people talk to other interesting people about interesting things. New ideas, old ideas, thinkers and dreamers.
A lot of the shows I enjoy are comedians talking to other comedians, candid accounts of their experiences in the industry they work in. I find them inspiring and often relieving. To hear entertainers, talk so openly about the highs and the lows of performance feels like something that hasn’t really happened before and, personally, as a performer, it’s something that really helps me.
I began looking for musical equivalents: honest, long form conversations between two musicians, the unquestionable highs of creating and performing, alongside honesty regarding things they have struggled with along the way. At the time of digging, nothing jumped out at me. I sat on the idea for some time before finally plucking up the courage to try and do it myself and went out and purchased the gear necessary for me to travel and record at the drop of a hat.
So far it has been better than I could have ever imagined. I travel to my guests wherever they may be and it is just the two of us in the room. After the initial ten minutes of chat we both loosen up and start to share stories and experiences from our time on the road.
What started as a labour of love and somewhat of a passion project is shaping up to be one of the best and fulfilling projects I’ve ever been a part of. I hope you find it as interesting and fun to listen to, as it was to make.

Intelligent, funny, enlightening

My go-to podcast when I’m in traffic, milling about the house, going for a run - anything. Just a really wholesome and honest discussion between musicians, giving us an insight into their lives and the music industry. Geoff has such an open, friendly demeanour, I love hearing him interact with the guests and getting them to open up and share their experiences. I’ve found out things about my favourite artists I doubt I would have heard anywhere else and found some new favourite artists as a result of listening. It’s very engaging and at times I find myself laughing out loud. Just really lovely listening - couldn’t recommend it enough!

Amazing

The conversational style is just perfect the bit that makes your podcast different and exceptional is that you share your own experience when relevant. It's a double bonus that the guy that makes the music you love is also such a humble and likeable guy. George Ezra; so likeable no matter what he is doing. Thanks for the podcasts and music.

Absolutly incredible, and another way to learn more about the both of you!
George, I saw you in the pouring rain this summer at WOW in Gothenburg and you were just amazing!
