These ladies are on it! Very informative and fun. No boring bits and their guests are all very experienced in their respective fields.
Well done Jess & Bowie.
Must listen for any music fan or musician!
Interviews are fast-paced and interesting with a wide range of guests and the hosts are charming with great chemistry and energy. The insights into what it takes to be a working musician are fascinating and inspiring, the female perspective is there but not the exclusive focus. Relevant for any musician or music fan. I look forward to the next episode every week!
You gals are killing it!
