Trevor Larkin Pt. 1
Hey Hey! Got another two-parter here for ya featuring my buddy Trevor Larkin. I was so happy to have Trevor on the show because he's got his feet firmly planted in two camps right now: one, as the guitar player for the Allen Stone band, a well-established project enjoying a level of success that many dream of achieving, and the other in Climb The Sky, a brand new musical project which is Trevor's brainchild. It's wildly interesting to hear someone talk about new hopes and aspirations when they could very well be resting on their laurels and enjoying the status quo. Learn how to keep making things and keep growing on this special pair of episodes.  Connect with Trevor: www.trevorlarkin.com Connect with The Slow Drag: www.theslowdrag.com
