Make Dope Shit S1 Ep5 Scarlet Street

“It’s so much better than just sitting there, looking at your virtual rulebook like, what could I possibly do? You just need to make a decision. It’s the difference of perspectives. And it’s the difference of ‘I’ve been listening to this particular part so many times that almost I can’t hear it a different way.’ And then you bring it to somebody who has not heard your two hours of practicing and struggling and you can get hit with that sudden nugget of knowledge…”

In this episode, I sit down with my friends at Scarlet Street, for the first 2.0 guest episode on the podcast. They’re currently in the process of writing their second album, and we spend time discussing their creative process, collaborative efforts, and the evolution of their music going into this second album. We also get into how they’re using discord of all things to collaborate on this album. It was great to sit back down with the band to catch up, and we covered plenty of interesting ground.
