The Best of 2016 Let The Music Play Podcast

Dearest music maker,

I am so grateful for you joining me on the journey of making music with our lives. 2016 was a wonderful and beautiful year for Let The Music Play Podcast.

I remember the first time I ever interviewed someone twelve months ago. I didn’t know how to work the recording device and had no idea how much of an art form interviewing someone is. Nevertheless, I kept hitting record and asking my heroes, mystics, authors, artists, sages, and philosophers about the music they make with their life, relationships, and careers.

In this episode you will find a few of the highlights from the past year’s interviews. Enjoy!

And a BIG thank you goes out to Ryan O’Neal of Sleeping At Last for providing the music playing behind all of this wisdom shared!

Throwing a changeup here…periodically I will start to share some of the interesting people, places, sights, sounds, and ideas that I’ve crossed paths with.

The Kent’s from Philadelphia have inspired me from afar with their work, craft, and art they’re putting into the world. If you’re looking for handmade leather goods, this is the place.

“Saturn” music video by Sleeping at Last.

What happens when Ryan O’neal of Sleeping at Last collaborates with Michael Means and Tom Shea? I don’t have language for that answer. Enjoy and job well done gentlemen.
