WOTS Version 144 with Ilen Halogram and Audrey Lane

I am changing up the podcast. I did a bit of a longer intro and caught you up on why I am doing this podcast.  I am also starting to give tips on what I believe are key aspects of progressing your music career.  Today I talk about the importance of having a great recording and why it's the most important part of being a musician. Do you agree or disagree? Post in the comments on this post in facebook. I look forward to having a conversation with you.

Today on the podcast I talk to Ilen Halogram and Audrey Lane.  I took a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island to meet up with Ilen and Audrey to talk about I Am Halo.  We talked about what it's like living on Bainbridge, where did I Am Halo come from, how to create a multi media experience including virtual reality with music.  We also talked about Ilen's head trauma and how it effected her music and what it's been like since. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
