In this episode I chat with Rheanna Downey and Molly Jenson of the band, Shhhhh. Don't worry they're not trying to shush you, that's just their name. We cover a lot of ground in our conversation but central to it all is the idea of trusting yourself and the creative process. Whether that be, believing you are never too old to pursue what you love or just trusting that the next song, book, painting, or inspiration in general will  come to you. Molly and Rheanna share all about how they met, what it is like writing and playing together, and about all the things that are lighting them up these days. Also, stick around to the end to hear them play one of their new songs! Follow Shhhhh on Instagram: shhhhhthebandOr follow on Facebook: shhhhhthebandVisit their website:
