Behind The Scene Episode 75 - Jerry Becker (Keyboardist, Guitarist - Train)

I love people who have so much self doubt, questioning everything...but they’re super successful...I mean, we’re playing arenas and I’m sittin’ here going ‘Man, what do we need to do to get to a stadium?’ Ya know, like that’s all that’s in my head and my singer’s head. I swear to God, Pat’s like ‘All right, next level. What do we do?’ Ya know, because if you don’t have that and you get complacent...you’ll probably just kinda fizz away.

I remember like it being my birthday and I’d blow out the birthday candles and I’d wish that I’d wake up a girl the next morning and like, ya know, it’d have to be a thing where...where everyone always knew that I was a girl not that like I instantly changed into being a girl.

Behind The Scene Episode 72 - Kaylie Foster (Indie Pop)

Almost all of the power is in our hands as artists whereas it use to be in the hands of the labels, right? But now it’s like it’s my job to be my manager, to be my marketer, to be my social media expert, to wear all these different hats in order to cut above that noise.

Behind The Scene Episode 70 - Dawn Fay (Producing Director, Wonderbound)

I think the big goal was to push the art forward, and that’s still ongoing. That’s never gonna stop. The complexity of it, of our shows, the fact that now we have bands like Chimney Choir or Ian Cooke or Jesse Manley and his band and even working with Tom Hagerman who wrote a new composition for the symphony. So that’s the big thing for us, is that constantly pushing that envelope of new and constantly pushing the artists that we work with to keep notching up as we keep notching up is beyond.

Behind The Scene Episode 69 - Neyla Pekarek (Singer Songerwiter, The Lumineers)

So it’s felt really just kind of refreshing in a way to start a new project that has nothing to do with it (The Lumineers). Again, I’m so lucky to be part of this monstrous thing that happened and I love performing and I love being on stage and that type of thing but I had to find an outlet too to be creative...I ended up writing pretty much a whole record in a few months.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
