On this episode, Jon hangs out with another artist, songwriter, and musician that he’s worked with a few times over recent years – Sean Sunderland.

Sean plays drums in the band Zasz, writes music under his own name (Sean Sunderland), and even has a more experimental project called Chatter that serves as yet another creative outlet for him.

On this episode, Jon and Sean discuss many facets of life as a music-maker such as, the recording studio as a catalyst for learning, the importance of having alone time and slowing things down to achieve honesty in your music, the un-obvious challenges that can come up when working at a “big” studio, breaking through creative blocks, and tactics for getting into a creative flow, among TONS of other things.

This is a bit of a longer episode, as it’s packed DENSE with a lot of thought-provoking insights.
