WOTS Version 152 with Wonder #2

Today Wonder came over to Studio Twelve Hundred to record for the second time on the podcast. We talked extensively about touring.  That was the bulk of the conversation, Wonder brought us up to date on her current tour, why to do it, philosophies around it, and what it's like showing up at a venue for the first time.  We also talked about what kind of shows Wonder likes best, how she creates her arrangements for covers, and so much more!!!! I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

WOTS Version 151 with Actionesse

Today in my intro I pour you into my mind.  I am making some changes to the podcast at least on outlook.  Tune in find out what's up!

We had the mighty Actionesse on the podcast.  Joel Kenworthy, Paddy Moran, and Ian Reed of the band visited Studio Twelve Hundred while they were on tour. We talked all about the tour, why they are on it what expectations they had going into what has changes since being on it. We talked about the importance of networking with bands in other cities and how to do it.  We also got into their recordings and got some backstory on the process of recording the band.  I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
