From a Wacky Doomsday Cult to Achieving Artistic Fulfillment: The Story of Wesley David (The Quinn Spinn)

Wesley David was raised in a religious cult, and found an escape through music. Since then, he built a career for himself on the piano bar circuit, and has traveled internationally while opening for a long list of widely recognizable acts.

Recently, Wesley released his album Never Late Than Better — an authentic and artistically fulfilling new release that puts Wesley’s sense of humor and raw honesty on display. We discuss the album, the road that led Wesley to this point, and the impacts of technology on art and society itself.

From Performing with the U.S. Army to Taking Creative Chances: Catching Up with Corrin Campbell (The Quinn Spinn)

The incredible story of Corrin Campbell begins in Duluth, Minnesota and takes her all over the world. Corrin enlisted in the U.S. Army at a young age, where she served and performed extensively on behalf of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Now back stateside and residing in the Nashville area, Corrin is preparing to release Greatest Hits Dual Disc, a two-part album featuring orchestral and remixed versions of songs from across her career.

On this edition of The Quinn Spinn, we look inside the exciting and challenging creative process that helped Corrin create Greatest Hits Dual Disc.

Kaelyn Warne is a Ph.D student and the host of Seasoned & STEAMed, a research-based podcast about art, science, history, and wellness, delivered in a fun, quirky, and educational way. We connected with Kaelyn as an ambitious fellow podcaster at Helping Our Music Evolve (H.O.M.E.), and have had the opportunity to watch, as she has launched her new podcast from scratch.

One day, we were in the studio, taking her through the setup process as she prepared to record her first episodes. We sat down to test out the microphones and, before we knew it, we had an unexpected episode of The Quinn Spinn on our hands!

During this episode, we discuss what it’s like to build a platform like ours from scratch, and the ways in which our passions dictate our free time and impact our relationships — familial, romantic, and otherwise. This is a can’t-miss conversation for anybody with a creative pursuit!
