Tanya Winch playing acoustic guitar smilingIn this episode Tanya Winch and I meander through her journey in music, art and life. She and I are mutually acquainted with Brian Wolff. Brian is a musician and host of the Greetings From Wherever, a podcast about artistic inspiration and the creative process. Thanks to Brian for recommending I feature Tanya on this podcast.

My conversation with Tanya is extra casual. I had a very nice time getting to know her. We chat about her single Cupid, her vinyl collection, her day job, her beginnings in LA, the making of the video for Cupid and Tanya’s release strategy. We also talk about why I started the Unstarving Musician podcast. This leads us into conversation about The Unstarving Musician’s Guide to Getting Paid Gigs.

Tanya plays guitar and piano, she teaches music for guitar, piano and voice. I’m pretty sure she owns a pair of tap shoes. She’s high energy and yet she shares a moment of humility and vulnerability that I left in the episode for you to hear. This was so I could say, she’s totally worthy, and so are you. Whatever it is you’re feeling unworthy of, stop that. As a fan of the podcast once said to me, accept whatever good things life brings and embrace it.

Please enjoy my conversation with Tanya Winch.
