Phoenix, Arizona based Singer/Songwriter Brian Chartrand sits down with friends and fellow artists to discuss music, songwriting, art, life, and whatever else comes up. The inspiration for this podcast came from the countless, often intense, sometimes zany, discussions over the years with friends and artists that I wish I had recorded. Another goal of So The Story Goes is to introduce the world to some very talented friends of mine. I hope you enjoy it.
