021 - Lee Newell - Viva Brother
Discovery, identity and the music press. Me and Lee talk about becoming the character that's presented to you, how that can be destructive both personally and professionally and why a change in motivation has led Viva Brother to release their second album now, six years after it was recorded.
This conversation means a lot to me. I've known about Lee since I started out in music and when Brother came about, I felt like something was off. They were a great band but I felt like what I was seeing, wasn't the Lee I'd bumped into in the past. We talk it out and in the process learn how difficult finding your identity can be when there are so many external pressures. We also talk about how much fun being in a band is and the opportunities Viva Brother were given.
A truly inspiring talk and I hope you enjoy it!
