Who Were You Before the Stories? (Solo Mission #10)

This past Friday, I had a chance to reconnect with the root of my passion for music and live performance by attending The Mixtape Tour with New Kids on the Block, Salt N Pepa, En Vogue, and Rick Astley.

The experience brought to mind a broader question: who were we, and what were our passions, before the world got in?

UMC20: Packed with International Flavors and More (May 17, 2022)

We’ve got a lot of rock tunes from across the pond in the UK. In fact, this week’s UMC20 is frontloaded with ’em!

There’s more to the story, though — there are plenty of jams from right here at home, whether that means Nashville or somewhere else in the mainland U.S. We move beyond rock, as well, to give you some Americana, soul, pop, hip hop, and even some electronica!

UMC20: Bringing the Heat (May 10, 2022)

You had to know there’d be a weather pun, with summer making its first appearance of 2022 in Tennessee this week.

It’s also accurate, because (as always), we have your flavor of total fire on this week’s UMC20. Things get off to a hot start and keep burning — from hip hop, to metal, to folk, and all stops in between.

You know what time it is. Let’s go!

Unscripted and From the Heart: Thoughts on the Healing Journey, Relationships, and Family (ft. Foundation Mecca and Lord Goldie)

A few weeks ago, we celebrated Sunday Funday with Lord Goldie, Foundation Mecca, and Chaun Davis of ViB. However, after the episode was when things got even more real.

Foundation and Goldie stuck around after the show, and we went extra deep on life, our relationships, and our own healing journeys — while the Zoom meeting was still recording the whole thing! The raw honesty and vulnerability is quite unlike anything we’ve ever presented here at The Quinn Spinn, and we wanted to make our truth available to you as a bonus episode!

UMC20: Guess What? It’s Already May (May 3, 2022)

We’re late to the party on our annual J-Timbs meme share. Sorry — it’s just been busy.

However, one thing that isn’t late is this week’s UMC20 playlist — and we’ve got ourselves some bangers. We also have some more tender moments. We run the genre gauntlet, and we even have a Mother’s Day tune from a “Swanky Ma.”

Make sure you call Mom this weekend — after you check out what we’ve got for you below!

Scotty Rock Bares All? Cashing in on that Beanie Baby Collection, and Spelunking in the Outhouse (ft. The OG Quinn Spinn Family)

Does Scotty really bare all on this episode? Only one way to find out, and that is to listen! And, even if he doesn’t, perhaps there are clues about what you need to do to make it happen. đŸ˜‰

Truthfully, the episode title is long enough as it is, but that doesn’t even begin to cover how many topics we covered in an hour, and how off-the-rails this conversation went. When the OG crew gets together, you should expect nothing less.

Attachment Styles, Family Dynamics, and Healing the Inner Child with Lauren Gomance of SoulFit Counseling

Lauren Gomance is a licensed therapist, wellness advocate, and the founder of SoulFit Counseling, which serves to help clients connect with their true, best selves. We got in touch through a mutual friend — specifically, Taylor Berryman of The Poptimist — and the result is this open and insightful conversation about relationship dynamics, healing our trauma, and how our wiring causes us to show up in the world.

It’s time to take a deep dive! Won’t you join us?

UMC20: New Music in Bloom (April 19, 2022)

Spring is a time for renewal, and we’ve refreshed our UMC20 playlist with 20 more vibrant tracks of all shapes and sizes.

It feels cliche, at this point. We always try to bring you variety here, and this week is certainly one of the stronger examples of that in 3 1/2 years of weekly UMC20 playlists. It’s also hard to believe we’ve almost been in Nashville for 3 1/2 years, but that’s a story for another day.

The story today? The sonic magnificence that awaits you below!

Coming Back from the Pandemic and ‘Charis Song’: A Conversation with Leah Jean

Ohio-born, Chicago-forged, and Nashville-based, Leah Jean’s immense musical talents shine through on everything she does. She also has a compelling story, as a musician who relocated to Nashville at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. We explore those turbulent times, and how they’ve led us to the present day, which includes the release of her new single, “Charis Song,” on April 15.

UMC20: Upcoming Performances, International Jams (April 12, 2022)

It’s a busy week around these parts. NashLive! has a couple shows — both in-person and virtual — and that’s always exciting. It also gives us plenty of tunes for UMC20.

That’s just part of the story, of course. We have artists spanning the globe featured this week, from as far away as New Zealand, as well as plenty right here at home. The genre spectrum is pretty well covered. All in all, this volume of UMC20 is surely memorable, and bound to have something you’ll want to replay over and over again.

Let’s get to it, then? Cool!
