So many topics covered in this interview including
- The different pathways available for creatives
- The power of dreaming
- Saying YES to things that are super challenging
- Seriously too many topics to list you just have to listen to the podcast
I just loved this interview Adam has so much positive energy and passion for all things creative as a musician he is also interested in other creative spaces as well including the Art Gallery and being inspired by all forms of Art.
Adam has an incredible gig really creative and something not seen before here in Adelaide as far I know. Its coming up soon which I can’t wait to share a mini podcast all about this gig and I will be posting this podcast in the next couple of weeks once dates and tickets have been confirmed.
Sundays you can see Adam play in The Ben Todd Band at the Gov see link for details.
I think every time I feel like I am unsure of what I am doing as a creative person I am going to listen to Adam’s interview and be reenergised.
I would like to acknowledge that music played on my Podcast is an original tune by David Innocente, Jazz Musician/Artist
