On this episode we interview our first non-KC based guest: Chris Staples, a musician, singer, songwriter, and recording artist from Seattle, WA. Chris has been making music for over 20 years, first in the bands Twothirtyeight (Tooth & Nail Records) and Discover America, and more recently as a solo artist. He's been featured on NPR's All Songs Considered and was recently signed to Barsuk Records. We talk with Chris about his new record, creating & releasing his own music, the impact of Spotify on his music, and the common history that he and Ryan share. Thanks for listening!
