After a majorly transformative summer in my personal and professional life, I felt compelled to use The Quinn Spinn’s 8th anniversary to share some revelations that have come to me as a byproduct of my own creative journey. That journey began with this podcast and the desire to have an impact — the desire to feel as though I am contributing something to the world, beyond checking society’s boxes.
This road-less-traveled has brought forth so many incredible moments. At the same time, it has brought about unique challenges that appear at the intersection of the hustle and my presence in other areas of life. As I’ve ridden those waves, I’ve come to a point where I understand what it truly means to create and spread abundance, and how that serves life’s bigger picture.
It’s been an amazing ride to this point, and there is still much more to come. Thank you for being along for the journey.
This Wednesday at 6 p.m. CT, Michelle and Jenna host a special edition of Drinking with Founders, featuring… our founder!
Gerard Longo talks Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT), learning to ride a bike at age 29 (and all over again at 34), and some UMC, Live from the 615, and The Quinn Spinn stuff, too.
Watch it Live! (6 p.m. CT)
The word “sugarcoat” is not in Taylor Berryman‘s vocabulary. As host of his own podcast, The Poptimist, Taylor leaves no stone unturned, and shows no fear as he goes deep on topics from the music industry, to the state of society, to his own life experience.
Taylor is also a musician with a number of projects in and around Nashville, as well as an avid Yankees fan. We touch all of that and a whole lot more on today’s Quinn Spinn!
To tell you that we discuss Fresh Lady‘s new single and music video, “Watermelon,” on this episode of The Quinn Spinn would only be scratching the surface of this one. Indeed, this might be the most real, true-to-life conversation we’ve ever had on the show.
We go in on topics like mental health, the judgments we cast on the internet, and so much more about 21st Century life. This one is an all-timer. Don’t miss it!
Ryan Kinder’s passions extend far beyond music. His foundation, Kinder’s Kids, provides toys to children dealing with the aftermath of natural disasters. He’s also currently training for the Iron Man world championships in Kona, HI to honor a friend who has passed away from cancer.
Through it all, Ryan finds time to dedicate to his art. His album, Room to Dream, will be released at the end of July, and it’s packed with stories from his time navigating the ups and downs of the music industry.
Put it all together, and we have plenty to discuss on today’s episode of The Quinn Spinn!
Erin McLendon is an Americana musician, vocal coach, entrepreneur, and the founder of Music on the Move Studios (formerly Women on Fire) in Nashville, TN. Erin’s dedication to advocating for independent musicians and female entrepreneurs is clear to all whom she encounters, and she joins us to discuss these endeavors, alongside her upcoming singles “Sunday Crowd” and “Millie.”
Frankly, this episode has been a long time coming. Erin has a lot to say, and she does it with style. Don’t miss this!
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!
This past winter — before the end of the ‘rona times was in our sights — we got together with Nashville-based musicians Allison Mahal and Van Isaacson, just for the sake of recording an episode of The Quinn Spinn. We had no plan for the episode, and had no idea when it would even release, but hung onto it for a time when we wanted to delight you with an entertaining conversation.
That time is now. Plus, you’ll get to hear about all of our 2021 aspirations — many of which are on their way to coming true!
