This week sees the first in a series of Podcasts relating to all things uniquely creative and musical. It’s an absolute privilege to introduce as our first guest, the founder of the worldwide collaboration project 4bar Collective – Dan Blackwell.

Throughout the session we talk about how 4bar Collective began, how the Sister project came to be, what the plans are for the upcoming trip to Afghanistan, Dan’s hopes for the project, potential concerns and difficulties, and how he manages to stay motivated and work hard at what he believes in – even in the face of difficulty. He offers some pretty inspiring words of advice for any musicians or creatives who are just starting out or who are struggling with which direction they should head in. Well worth a listen. A huge thank you to Dan for taking part in such an open and in depth discussion.

The Podcast is free to download, please like and share if you enjoy the content, and please feel free to get in touch if you think your project or story would work well on the show.
