Michael Gilbride, telco | please come homeMichael Gilbride of telco has translated perfectionism and passion into his latest release please come home. He joins me to talk about his musical perfectionism, getting a late start on his music endeavors, and how not to have fun while making an EP. These are all themes with which I can relate. This is our second conversation for the podcast.

Hear our first conversation in episode 198.

Most of our conversation for this episode felt like we were pissing and moaning about how hard it is to make, publish and promote music. We’re actually breaking down the range of emotions that independent musicians can experience while recording, publishing and releasing music.

Michael has relocated to New York City since we last spoke, where he now has a dedicated home studio. It’s here that he plans to continue translating his perfectionist and passion filled persona into music. He certainly channeled this and a lot of other emotions into his EP please come home.

Michael has a side hustle gig in recording and mastering and is now self producing with a newfound level of confidence. Yet he’s sure he’ll listen back to his new EP when he’s working on the next one, and decide that it this one’s crap. This is quite funny to me, but I totally get it. Michael recognizes the importance of having fun while making music and art. He and I are both optimistic that he’ll find have a little more fun with his next recording project.
