    Electric Blue Dreams

    It never occurred to Dave Barnes to not write songs when he picked up a guitar. But he didn’t think of himself as a songwriter; he was just having fun. And two decades later, with many hit songs and a Grammy nomination under his belt, he still struggles with the same self-doubt that all creators experience. But what makes a creator is the willingness to live in that space.

Great Storytelling Style with a warm beautiful voice

I love this style of storytelling!

I am loving this podcast. It is so easy to listen to, the episodes are so consume-able and not a huge time commitment. And I always leave feeling inspired. Each story feels like a personal introduction to a creator and I love feeling like I got to know them and their story. I love the diversity in the creators themselves as well as in the type of content they are creating. As a writer I feel like I’ve learned valuable lessons about perseverance and risk from other creators (painters, educators, designers!) that I would not normally have turned to for inspiration.
