Behind The Scene Episode 62 - Megan Fong (Florea, Bonnie and the Beard)

But I think for me, not really knowing who I was anymore, being able to play music and create like that, that was really, really important. So I would take that. I would be like ya know, I know I’m going to be sick after doing this but I need to because it’s the only thing that feels normal...It’s gonna make me feel horrible but I want to do it.

I think it’s two different approaches to kind of achieve the same effect. It’s just for me I like to kinda be in a blissful state of mind when I’m performing, ya know.

I’d just watch my Mom kind’ve turn her heartache and her pain into song and after she’d put us to bed I’d just hear her play piano and hear her cry and play piano, I mean it was transformative for her and I think was like deeply impactful for me.

Behind The Scene Episode 57 - Anthony Ruptak (Singer-Songwriter)

So, I’m very grateful to have this outlet as well because it is a true sense of like I’m doing something important. Music is still selfish, it’s a selfish endeavor at the end of the day. I do it for my mental health and because I love performing and I love writing. It feels great to have something to actually tangibly help people with as well.

Behind The Scene Episode 55 - Kramies Windt (Singer-Songwriter)

My whole goal with my music is to make something that allows other people to connect with their personal emotions. That’s it. That’s the whole goal. That doesn’t lead to fame. That leads to creating more and constantly trying and constantly putting yourself out there and constantly expanding and growing and creating. It’s a never ending cycle.

Behind The Scene Episode 54 - Slim Cessna (Slim Cessna's Auto Club, DBUK)

One of the things we do with our shows is we, the band literally loses, we lose ourselves and we get lost, at least I do, I get lost in this show like where I’m not thinking about anything, like there’s no worries, there’s no inhibition, there’s no wall, everything disappears, and so the best audiences are when that also happens with the audience.

Behind The Scene Episode 49 - Chella Negro (Chella and the Charm)

It was like the first time I could say what I wanted to say. It was really terrifying at first, and sometimes it still is where you just have that ultimate freedom. How are you gonna use that? Are you going to say something really profound, or are you gonna talk about inner tubes and Budweiser? You can do anything you want. It’s daunting but freeing at the same time.

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…

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.

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.

I got to a really dark place, and I, you know, wasn’t happy.
