A few years ago, I had the idea that it would be great to listen to honest and reflective interviews with my all-time favourite artists and songwriters. In my case this is a very long list that would include Suzanne Vega, Tears For Fears, James, Feeder and Spoon amongst many others. I didn’t just want to hear about their latest records or their heyday, but all the times in-between — the good times and the bad. I wanted to hear about the records they would want to change, or when they lost a key band member, or were dropped from their record label, or the time they felt they had simply lost their way. Mostly I wanted to know how they are still here and in many cases, making some of the best music of their careers. I could not find a radio show or podcast that did that, and if you want to see an idea come to fruition, one way is to do it yourself.
So I created The Art of Longevity!
