Donnie Biggins was one of the first musicians I met when I moved to Chicago. Since then he has become a venue owner, solo artist,  a home owner, and a father. We had a blast sitting down in front of a live audience to discuss the story behind his songs, Chicago Violence, Being a father, and more. 


Josh Moshier is a dear friend of mine and is extremely thoughtful. His opinions on music are pretty great and it's always a pleasure to sit down with him. We got a chance to talk a bit about LA, Filmscoring, a musicians mark, Jazz and producing records.

On losing privacy with super stardom....
"Tolliver: The fact that people would actually care what you do on a day to day basis, that would be hell for me
Briar Rabbit: Right.
Tolliver: ....Cause I do a lot of weird shit"

Tolliver is a great Soul/RnB singer I met in Chicago. He plays in a band called "Black Diet." One of my best friends, he and I spend an hour talking about all the things you're not supposed to talk about. Race? Yup. Politics? Yes. Money? Sure did. All that glitters ain't gold, kids! 



What a good way to catch up with close friends? Jonah and I discussed how he bridges being a jazz pianist and an electronic producer, social media, and growing as an independent artist. You can check Jonah out here:
