The first four episodes are out today, featuring:
1) Jeff, Spencer and Sammy Tweedy
2) Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee
3) Mdou Moctar
4) Neko Case
Each of them will discuss and debut their exclusive piece of music, in addition to talking about the ways in which deeper listening informs their process, and how that practice can enrich all of our lives.
“I think this very well might be the most ambitious music podcast series ever made,” says Ian Wheeler, Founder of Talkhouse Creative Studio and Executive Producer of Listening. “We’re so incredibly grateful to the artists and our partners at Mailchimp for working with us to create something so wonderful and meaningful.”
“The last couple of years have blurred the lines of how we live, what’s important and how we express ourselves,” adds Julie Douglas, Senior Podcast Manager and Executive Producer of Mailchimp Studios. “And this podcast is a reflection of that, with amazing artists-musicians creating a kind of call and response to the world in the form of original compositions with companion commentary, and our friends and collaborators at Talkhouse acting as thoughtful translators and bringing these stories to life.”
