"Find yourself musically. Do what you do. Develop your own thing - your own sound & style. It’s ok to learn from other players, songwriters, singers. But, learn how they do things. Learn how they sing that way, where they get their tone, place the note in their body to get the power or sound, learn how others have learned and then move on. Bring all that to how you feel it. Learn all of that and get to understand how to play around and support the…

Q&A with California multi-instrumentalist and composer Rachel Flowers - her music spans multiple genres

Posted on October 13, 2021 at 9:00am 0 Comments

Sometimes art impacts our world at large indirectly through cultural influences, be it fashion, language, recreation, etc. Sometimes it's a more direct approach through protest songs, or songs that simply call attention to issues that affect specific communities."

Q&A with Canadian roots musician and storyteller Matt Patershuk - he loves words as much as he does music

Matt Patershuk: An Honest Effort

Matt’s Grandad used to say: “God loves a trier”. He didn’t mean it in the way…
