Behind The Scene Episode 48 - Joel Van Horne (Covenhoven)

All I can say is that when I started to think about this I got really excited and I also got like this feeling...this feeling of like ‘this is just so right’. It felt great that I was paying tribute to my grandfather and that place, and sort of carrying on the story of Covenhoven in this other way, and you know, maybe one day my grandkids or my great grandkids are gonna know this story and be able to like add to it or something.

Behind The Scene Episode 47 - Rob Drabkin (Singer-Songwriter)

I think it is just a inherent joy in music. I think that’s it. It’s not easy to find a really just truly dark, depressing song with no hope laid in there whatsoever. There is just some inherent hope and joy in music. I feel like the majority of songs have a hopeful message somewhere…

Behind The Scene Episode 46 - Stefon Alexander (P.O.S, Doomtree, Marijuana Deathsquads, Gayngs)

But then at that point I basically just, stopped. I just stopped. I lost touch with all my friends, lost touch with everybody. I just kind of sat and did dialysis. … I went on that first tour when I was 14 and I didn’t stop playing several shows a month all the way to several shows a week to making what I thought was, you know, the best album that I had made at the time, and then just like stopping. And not doing anything for like 3 years.

Behind The Scene Episode 45 - Tom Hagerman (DeVotchKa)

Young, unsuccessful bands are funny because I feel like they are like a time-lapsed photography of like a flower that sort of blossoms and dies really quickly. Everything that happens in a real band happens in those bands in like 3 months.

Behind The Scene Episode 44 - Wes Watkins (Other Black)

not 6 months after I got those gold records I lost everything and found myself busking on the streets of Denver Colorado again. You want perspective? You want fame not to change you? Make sure you stay attached to what made you.
That’s it. That’s all it takes.

Behind The Scene Episode 43 - Ian Cooke (Singer-Songwriter)

I got to a really dark place, and I, you know, wasn’t happy. And I kinda figured out slowly that I made a mistake breaking up with my boyfriend and nine months later asked him if he would get back together with me and that is kind of what this album turned into....these are love songs for this person
