Today’s guest on the show is musician and content creator Willard Hill.
We met up at Ink48, a Kimpton hotel in the heart Hell's Kitchen and talked about growing up in New Orleans, how culture is a gumbo, his process of making music, the music industry, group think, corporate culture, overcoming creative roadblocks, art being a reflection of the times and much much more.
That’s enough intro for one show, please enjoy.
I’m going to close out today’s episode with Will performing his song Future Fresh at The Gumbo NYC.
And I’ll see ya’ll, next Tuesday… Lord Willing.
