Hello everybody, and welcome to a very special post! This particular topic will cover one of my favorite Podcasts. I’ve been listening to podcasts for as long as I can remember, and always love the diverse subject that they go into. You can imagine my delight when I found out about this one! I discovered this gem when researching information about Kevin MacLeod’s music. He did a very in depth interview on how Kevin produces his Royalty-Free Music. The Podcast is simply titled Composer Quest: A Songwriting and Music Composition Podcast. This podcast covers a variety of musical topics from Royalty Free Music, to Slot Machine Music. The host of this podcast is Charlie McCarron, an incredibly talented Composer and Producer that lives in Minneapolis. From He has a very quirky personality, and vast knowledge of everything music. Every week, for four years (1/2/13-1/24/17, he interviewed a different composer about a different genre of music. He would give various composing tips, and explain the inner workings in a way that was easy to understand. There’s 177 episodes to choose from, so the possibilities are nearly endless. The best part is that all of the Podcasts are completely free, and easily accessible on his website, charliemccarron.com, and on iTunes. I highly recommend this Podcast, and will share my favorite episodes below. Final Rating: 10/10 (CHECK THIS OUT IMMEDIATELY!)

Only Love by The Nth Power from the album “Abundance”: Are you guys ready for an incredibly awesome piece of music? I sure hope so! This is a very unique and wonderful example of Soul music. The lead singer’s vocals are filled with passion, and will make your head bob to the awesome beat. The funky guitar drums, and backup vocals are also amazing, and it’s a true treat to the ears. It’s a truly fantastic song that I hope you all will enjoy.
