A Conversation a Year in the Making, featuring Catalina!

We were supposed to have Catalina on The Quinn Spinn last April to chat about all things music and more, fresh off of her brilliant 2019 and the release of her record, Multifacética.

And then… COVID happened. Our guest schedule was upended. Great re-shuffling ensued.

So, we shuffled this episode to take place a year later, and it was certainly worth the wait! We welcome the Chilean-born performer to today’s show, where we catch up on a variety of topics — including her COVID adjustments, her new single, “Control,” and a brief look at what’s on the horizon.

Catching Up with Country Artist Patrick Carpenter

The world has changed drastically since we last had Patrick Carpenter on The Quinn Spinn. Our previous encounter premiered just weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the world — and with it, the music industry as we knew it.

Nonetheless, the Mississippi native has persisted, going inward and emerging from the pandemic with a new album’s worth of songs. Not to mention, he’s still part of the football program at Lipscomb Academy with Super Bowl-winning quarterback Trent Dilfer, where they took their team all the way to the state championship, and received an extra motivational boost from a certain seven-time Super Bowl champion.
