Existential Musings and Exploring ‘Honeysuckle Summer’ with Charles Ellsworth

Earlier this year, Brooklyn-based troubadour Charles Ellsworth swung through Nashville and joined us to record an episode of The Quinn Spinn… and, man, this one is an all-timer!

Of course, we talk about Charles’ new album, Honeysuckle Summer, which features outstanding prog-Americana tunes including “Miami, AZ,” “Max & Geraldine,” and “A White Cross on a Highway.” However, that’s just scratching the surface. What we have here is an insightful, undeniably honest conversation between two 30-something creators. We touch on everything, from life on the road, to the adjustments we make on the creative journey, and the importance of discovering who we are. We even show some love to our high school football coaches, who helped mold us into the men we are today!
