A Travelling Songwriters Round

Into The Weeds is a podcast of songwriters and musicians. It travels in search of great writers and artists, known and unknown. It is a quest to open up new avenues of thought and connection through music. People who have never met: we sing together, and play together, and use our talents to create fleeting moments of insight together. These moments are common in the life of music, but are so easy to overlook or to not anticipate. They are not a professional performance, yet when they occur, they create a deep sense of purpose. The experience of these moments defined my young life. Now I am making more of them, as many as I can.
