Great motivation

- I’m a fiction and non-fiction author, but it is so great and helpful to hear how others are working with their art,which in this case is music. Good framework for all the important parts of the creative life! And the music is just fun to hear!

Inspiring!

As a singer-songwriter who has no clue what he's doing in any area besides songwriting, I need the wisdom of others, and that's what I found in the Hexagon Podcast. Besides just being fun to listen to, the Hexagon offers first-hand views from different singer-songwriters about specific methods they use to get ahead in business, performance, recording, and life in general. If you're one of those musicians who feels like everyone has it all together but you, you NEED to listen to this podcast! I don't have it together as much as the people being interviewed in each episode, but having listened to their stories, I now have a few tricks up my sleeve, and will undoubtedly benefit from the wisdom gleaned from the experience of others. This is inspiration at its finest.
