Season 6 Ep. 1 - Jess Williamson (Season Premier)
Growing up outside of Dallas, TX, Williamson was heavily influenced by her late grandmother. Someone Williamson says has not only inspired her music, but has acted as a muse to help express herself throughtout her carreer. Having a deep love and admiration for the late Jimmy Buffett at an early age, Williamson knew she wanted to be involved in music somehow. She began writting reviews and interviewing bands before she herself would soon be interviewed and written about in later years. Having moved to New York in her early 20s for a brief stint, it was there she felt something was changing within her. She later self-released her first two albums, "Native State" and "Heart Song", on her very own label before meeting back up in New York a few years later with the Mexican Summer folks and starting what would eventually become the journey of her life. Her new album "Time Ain't Accidental" is nominated for a grammy and Williamson couldn't be more excited and blessed for all the hard work shes put in over the years and how its finally paying off. Enjoy!

Born and raised in Smyrna, TN, the states largest town as of 2020's census, Spencer grew up with a younger brother and two very supportive parents. A teen in mid 2000's Nashville, Spencer was influenced by the explosive hardcore scene that was sweeping across America at the time. With bands that occupied the local community and headlining festivals such as Van's Warped Tour, it was here that he realized something special was happening all around him. His influences stretched across an ever-changing horizon that consisted of punk, folk, rock n' roll, hip-hop and many others. I first met Dan around 2014, immediatlely hitting it off, he would soon meet all the locals in our area shortly after forming the great Pumpkinseed, an incredible collective consisting of Nashville/Cookeville based muscians/artists. With alot of changes in life and tides beginto change, Spencer has once again found himself in a very unique place as he's recently joined the Post Malone camp. Something he's still trying to fathom, but feeling blessed and thankful for. WIth this being our very first "in person" podcast episode, we couldn't have picked a more special guest to be on the show as well as close out Seaon 5 this month. Dan is true blue, a dear friend, an increasingly creative giant and we're very excited for you to hear this one. Enjoy!
