    E5: Ardenite │ Cyber Pop Rock Duo

    On this episode I'm joined by Wana White, lead singer of the Cyber Pop Rock duo 'Ardenite'. The Austrian band from Vienna have been making strides recently, releasing regular singles & music videos whilst building a tight knit community on social media. It was there, on Instagram, that Wana and I got talking - it was clear we had a lot in common and I became very curious about the band's story and all that they have going on. Naturally, I had to get Wana on the podcast to talk about it - and I'm so glad that I did! We chatted about lots of things and there are certainly some important lessons and takeaways here for anyone looking to follow a similar path. I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation and hope that you enjoy listening to it!

    E4: Arron Sans │ Electro Pop Rock Singer Songwriter

    E4: Arron Sans │ Electro Pop Rock Singer Songwriter

    On this episode I'm joined by my good friend, Electro Pop Rock Singer Songwriter Arron Sans. Arron and I go way back, as we used to gig together with our bands back in the day - but Arron's story goes far beyond the times we shared together. Making a name for himself as a rock frontman throughout his youth, Arron already had a wealth of experience by the time we had met. Since then he's stripped things back and taken a more DIY approach as a singer songwriter, creating introspective songs as rich in depth as they are upbeat, catchy & accessible. We find Arron at a very exciting point in his trajectory, as he's just about to release his debut solo album 'Print On Demand' via Love Anarchy Records. We talk about the album, as well as all of Arron's story up until this point so far. It's a great adventure and I hope you enjoy listening to it!
