This episode is the second half of our conversation with Lil Aaron. I'll keep this intro short because if you felt like reading you wouldn't be about to listen to this podcast. We talk about Aaron's mini-mansion, pornstars, and the Catholic Church. Enjoy ;)
This week, we sat down with an artist who considers himself a non-conformist in the music industry, Lil Aaron. Most people know Lil Aaron as the party-hard, pop-punk, green-haired misfit, but that's only one side. Growing up in Goshen, Indiana, Lil Aaron lived the realities of moving broke out to LA. He pushed past the point where most give up and has spent thousands of hours honing his craft. Down to earth and devoid of genre constraints, Lil Aaron blends musical elements in a way we've never experienced before. I hope you enjoy part one of this conversation and gain new insight from Aaron's perspective.
We sat down with Wyclef Jean in the dressing room of the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ before the first show of the Carnival III tour. The room gave off a simple vibe with white walls, and we set up close around a small table. Wyclef spoke passionately about his background in battle rap, walking with legends like Biggie and Tupac, connecting to the younger generation, composing with the late Tim Berling (Avicii), and much more. Wyclef has adopted music as a way to survive and carries himself like it could be stripped away from him at any moment. This conversation left me with a deeper understanding of Wyclef's creative process and perspective. I hope you can also explore a different perspective within this episode.
We sat down with Mod Sun backstage at the Brooklyn Bazaar, who was on tour for his latest album 'BB.' In a cloudy room with graffiti-covered walls, Mod Sun spoke on his development as an artist, the power of saying "hello," crazy nights with Machine Gun Kelly, alternate realities, and much more. Mod believes being happy is a choice and chooses to see the happiness in every moment. I hope this conversation leaves you with a different perspective and a deeper look into the mind of Mod Sun.
