Arts & Culture Podcasts >

For some musicians, making music is a way of life... yet for others, it’s just a hobby. Sound for Thought is an interview style podcast that uncovers the motivations behind these mentalities and everything in between. We reveal why musically creative people do what they do. Our goal is to help our listeners gain a deeper understanding of why a piece of music was created, so they can gain a greater appreciation for the music itself. Hosted by Andrew Shults and produced by Redefining Records.
