Such a wonderful interview with a great talent. So much insight into his inspirations, creative process, & the value of relationships. This is a great peek into what the journey really looks like for a successful music producer in today’s music world. Thank you!
Another great episode.
I have been an average fan of David Mead until episode 6 of Songwriter Stories, and now I want to spend days and days listining to his music. Caruso gets to the core of his style, his approach and every nuance from The Luxury of Time to Cobra Pumps. I now find myself racing to fill the holes in my Mead collection. Another great episode Mr. Caruso!
Great songwriter interviews
This is an excellent songrwiting podcast. Dave really does his homework on each of his guests and knows just what to ask to get the most out of each interview. He has had some really great guests and I'm looking forward to the next episode of Songwriter Stories!
