A Highly Seductive Quinn Spinn History Lesson (ft. The OG Quinn Spinn Family)

The OG family has been traveling a bit, but that doesn’t stop the crew from getting together and recording a highly seductive episode of The Quinn Spinn!

The Quinn visits Scotty and L at The New Doghouse in New York, while JD joins remotely from vacation in Ohio. We hear about Scotty’s latest encounter with Coach McQuakes, explore the fried wonders of the Minnesota State Fair, and share nine years (and maybe more) worth of Quinn Spinn memories.

Networking In The Ever-Evolving Music Industry

For the past 25 years, Jenna Rose has had an unparalleled passion for supporting musicians, and an unmatched penchant for building relationships.

What started as superfandom for Tulsa-based sibling trio (and “MMMBop” songsmiths) Hanson has turned into two-and-a-half decades of connecting with people through music. Upon moving to Nashville in 2020, Jenna quickly immersed herself in the music industry, co-founding her own female-owned community organization, Music City Movement; becoming a contributor for Underground Music Collective; and, most recently, joining Nashville-based artist development company AGD Entertainment as an artist coach and program manager.

How has Jenna done it? By mastering the art of networking. Today, we’re honored to have Jenna share her insights and expertise with us!

‘Thinking Pop’ is Here, and We Like It (A Lot): A Conversation with Peachkit

Peachkit is a modern pop/alternative artist who subscribes to the way creating music used to be — when the focus was not on making tabloid headlines, but on the music itself. The largely-anonymous artist, producer, and songwriter recently came to Nashville from the United Kingdom and is already making a splash: her single, “Like It (A Lot),” stood out among a strong field of 140 submissions to win the second edition of Songtank, a Songland-meets-Shark Tank broadcast competition from Helping Our Music Evolve (HOME).

Among her many accolades, Peachkit has multiple number one writing credits to her name. As an artist, she combines her knack for writing chart-topping hooks with raw honesty and social commentary to create her own brand of “Thinking Pop” — and she does it all while rarely, if ever, showing her face.

All told, Peachkit is a brilliant, world-aware creative soul who lets her music do the talking — and certainly, there is plenty of room for her voice! She’s truly in a league of her own, and we’re fortunate to have had the chance to chat in-depth. Check out the full convo below!
