Start The Beat 026: JOSH ELSASS

For the 26th episode of #startthebeat I sat down with my friend Josh and talk about escaping the prison of suburban life to pursue his passions and the crazy journey he has been on ever since. Josh is the type of person that doesn't really seem to take anything in life for granted and it was really awesome to talk to someone with so much focus and positive energy. Don't know about you but I sure could use more of that in my life. This conversation was really inspiring and I'm happy to share it all with you. Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!

Start The Beat 025: DAVE WATT

For the 25th episode of #startthebeat I sat down with my homie Dave Watt and picked his brain for an hour about beer, art, music, his creative process surrounding both of those things and his love for anything with chicken in it. I am rather fond of this guy and all of the awesome things he has contributed to the world and you should be too. Check out his art here: davewatt.tumblr.com Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!

Start The Beat 024: MOEMAW NAEDON

For the 24th episode of #startthebeat I sat down with Moemaw Naedon for a laid back conversation about the music we grew up on and how it inspired us to make the music we make today. We also discuss the early days of using limited resources in creative ways to bring our ideas to life and how we have evolved as artists over the years. This is a a solid talk and I think everyone is going to take something with them from this. Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!

For the 23rd episode of #startthebeat I sat down with my homies Nelson & AJ from the band Save Us From The Archon (saveusfromthearchon.bandcamp.com) for some conversation about everything they have been up to lately with writing, recording and touring the country.

Start The Beat 022: MEGAN FAIR

For the 22nd episode of #startthebeat I sat down with my friend Megan for a really rad conversation about a bunch of rad stuff. It's always awesome to find other people in the world who don't know how to stop being busy because it makes me feel less crazy and Megan has A LOT going on at the moment. Like what you ask? Only one way to find out... Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!
