Behind The Scene Episode 66 - Michelle, Harmony, Blair - The Milk Blossoms (Indie Folk Trip-Hop)

I’m incredibly grateful for this relationship that we have with the three of us. I think I’ve sorta of dipped into bands that function purely on like a leadership level, you know, on one person is the center and that person can make decisions, as they should, can make decisions and get subs and you know not every person is essential. The part is essential but the person is not and so I think being able to have something like this where we can never really, we can never not have one person in this band to be able to perform, you know, we can’t sub anybody, you know, and that’s a gift. A gift that we’ve had to work for and work at.
— Michelle R.

Behind The Scene Episode 64 - Kurt Ottaway and Todd Spriggs (Emerald Siam)

It’s like I’ve had a band every decade of my life, pretty much. I’m going to run out of time. Sometimes I think it’s the greatest thing in the world, you know. Other times I think ‘What am I doing to myself?’
— Kurt Ottaway
You’ve put all this time and energy, your life working on this thing and...then down the road the stuff you get back can be pretty amazing. You get that call and they’re like “Hey, do you want to come play Red Rocks?” and you’re like that’s why, that’s why you do it, you know...You just played with these amazing bands you love, that’s why you do it.

Behind The Scene Episode 63 - Christie Buchele (Comedian)

I do have a disability so a lot of people might assume that I was maybe picked on and needed humor to like combat the bullies but I wasn’t really made fun of too much...I do think that people kind of just avoid you though so humor was more of a way of like them not being afraid to talk to me or be around me.

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’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.

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.

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.

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…
