The music industry is confusing. How do you begin? Where do you go from there? What’s it like to spend your life writing, touring, performing, recording, streaming and what’s the best way to navigate this maze? Or, if you’re not a musician and just love to hear fascinating stories from people who have definitely been there and who saw everything, enter the podcast aptly titled The Musicians Guide To Everything.
Join an Americana veteran of countless tours (Neko Case) and sessions as a powerhouse sideman, songwriter, and recording artist Jon Rauhouse, relentlessly productive and constantly writing and performing singer-songwriter Blaine Long and Sonic Piranha owner and producer Darren Baum in this podcast recorded in Phoenix’s most musician-friendly Coronado neighborhood at Sonic Piranha Studio.
The goal is to informingly entertain by drawing from the experiences of a wide range of passionate creators from a guitar maker to Fenway Park’s organist to an iconic musical game show winner and to various history makers. And who knows what will be next as The Musicians Guide To Everything continues to mine the depths of human experience and share the knowledge and truth of the most fascinating people.
