Real Talk: Life Doesn’t Have a Single Blueprint

We’ve all heard about the blueprint we’re “supposed to” follow in life: go to school, get a good job, get married, have children, and live “happily ever after.”

Well… not only is “happily ever after” a gigantic myth sold to us in greeting cards and animated movies, but happiness and fulfillment themselves have varying definitions.

The only blueprint you need to follow is the one that you create.

The Quinn Spinn: Keeping Rock Alive and Thriving in 2021 with VOLK

VOLK closed 2020 by releasing their new single and video for Welcome to Cashville,” a high-powered rocker that stares down the music industry and shoots from the hip. It’s the first taste of their forthcoming album, Cashville, and it’s reason to be excited about what’s to come, to say the least!

Even more reason for excitement? Today, you get to hear the story of Chris Lowe and Eleot Reich, who formed VOLK after meeting by chance in Berlin, Germany. Together, they’ve traveled a winding musical road that led them all the way to Nashville, where they’ve remained focused on releasing music that is raw, honest, and unforgettable.

Riding the Waves to 2021 with Timothy Myles

For as long as we’ve been in Nashville, our path has intertwined with Timothy Myles on several occasions. The Chicago native came into our sights when we entered and won the first-ever Top Writer Series at Nashville’s True Music Room in 2019. Since then, we’ve followed his journey, and have always found his wisdom and perspective to be perspective.

You’ll see that shine through here, as we discuss the ways Timothy has maneuvered through the COVID-19 pandemic to continue growing, all while keeping his sights set on brighter days in 2021 and beyond. This is the perfect episode to end the year… and it even has some surprise closing theme music, to boot!

Hard Work and Worldly Perspective: The Southern Gothic’s Connor Christian

The Southern Gothic released their six-song EP, Burnin’ Moonlight, this past Friday, December 4. Before the release, we sat down with frontman Connor Christian to learn about the record, his favorite moments, and the difference between crafting a release in the studio, as opposed to on the road.

We go much deeper than that. We discuss Connor’s well-traveled youth, which he spent in locations all over the world. In addition, we hear the band’s story of consistent hard work that took The Southern Gothic from an Atlanta-area cover band, to a versatile juggernaut that has opened for the likes of Willie Nelson, ZZ Top, and many more!

On this edition of The Quinn Spinn, the band joins us to discuss the creative process behind the album, and the melting pot of influences that led to its creation. Plus, we get a glimpse into the future, and discuss the distinct difference between the “two Nashvilles” we’ve all experienced.

The Quinn Spinn: A Discussion About Life, Relationships, and Podcasting with Kaelyn Warne

Kaelyn Warne is a Ph.D student and the host of Seasoned & STEAMed, a research-based podcast about art, science, history, and wellness, delivered in a fun, quirky, and educational way. We connected with Kaelyn as an ambitious fellow podcaster at Helping Our Music Evolve (H.O.M.E.), and have had the opportunity to watch, as she has launched her new podcast from scratch.

One day, we were in the studio, taking her through the setup process as she prepared to record her first episodes. We sat down to test out the microphones and, before we knew it, we had an unexpected episode of The Quinn Spinn on our hands!

During this episode, we discuss what it’s like to build a platform like ours from scratch, and the ways in which our passions dictate our free time and impact our relationships — familial, romantic, and otherwise. This is a can’t-miss conversation for anybody with a creative pursuit!
