Big thanks to Phillip St John for coming onto the show with absolutely no advance warning when our scheduled guest had car trouble. It was great to chat about and hear a few songs from his upcoming album Divine Wisdom coming out May 25.
We had an opportunity to talk to Phillip last summer when his EP Sun Indigo was released. The latest music maintains the positive outlook and ability to cheer although the story the album tells includes hard stuff – like a friend breakup and his stuff can get a little weird in a good way. But it’s a healing story and one from which listeners can learn. Also interesting to hear his process and his interesting approach to collaboration. He is very deliberate but gives himself space to play and grow.
Also a treat to have Phillip play live for us!
And we listened to songs about moms; you can listen to the playlist on Spotify and see what we played below…
