Podcast 14: Streaming Music, New Apps, Taxes


Most podcast episodes, I sit down with a different professional musician. This episode however, I sit down with two of my good friends who are also professional musicians. We sat down to talk about the latest with Apple Music and Spotify as well as new apps that we’re loving, and tax things to think about as the year comes to a close.

This episode was a lot of fun, I hope you enjoy it!
