    2019 kind of sucked...

    2019 kind of sucked...

    2019 was a rough year for me (Andrew). Professionally and personally.
    In this solo episode, I get more vulnerable than I have before and explain what went wrong this year and how I'm working to make sure 2020 looks different. 
    P.S. If you're worried because of the title that this will just be 54 minutes of me complaining - don't worry. If you also had a tough year or the best of your life, my hope is that this episode helps you go into 2020 the right way.

    How to Create a Culture Around Your Music | with SAWYER

    How to Create a Culture Around Your Music | with SAWYER

    This is a fun one. I got to sit down with the Nashville-based duo SAWYER (Emma Harvey and Kel Taylor) and chat about things like: 
    - how they infuse hooks into every part of their songs (aka the "hookie monster")
    - staying healthy on the road 
    - how they create culture around their music 
    - the benefits of being blunt in co-writing 
    - how a $20 bill helped them to start being a duo 
    - why they decided to start co-writing with people outside the duo
    - the release strategy for their next EP 
    - the vulnerability of being joyful as a performer 
    - why they are sticking in Nashville even thought they are going "pop" 
    - who drives slower 
    and MUCH more.

    Here is Part 2 of my conversation with Seth Alley. If you haven't already, be sure to go back and listen to Part 1 first.
    When we left off, Seth had just left his record deal.
    So he did the obvious next thing... changed his name and became a rapper.

It’s ok

This show has a lot of religious themes to it and seems to spend as much time talking about “god” as it does music
