Episode 2: Chris Carlson

Currently one of the busiest drummers in the Seattle music scene,  Chris Carlson has quite the resume. Currently in five bands, he plays with Seattle-local favorites Rafael Tranquilino, James Redfern, and Chance McKinney.

Prior to moving back to the Northwest in 2012, this Berklee School of Music graduate lived was in Nashville performing with budding country acts Claire Dunn, Josh Wilson, and Austin Janckes (from The Voice).

This episode explores how Chris got started on the drums, his post-grad journey (Boston to Seattle, to Nashville, and back to Seattle.), how he balances playing with so many different acts, approaches to recording, and how he networks in the music business.

Made for Music: The podcast set to explore the Northwest Music Scene

It’s been a long time coming, but I am thrilled to announce the launch of Made for Music.

I grew up in the Greater Seattle area and have lived in the Pacific Northwest my whole life. There’s a wonderful, vibrant music scene up here, with an incredibly welcoming community. Growing up, music was my ultimate passion, but I didn’t know how to get started.

So, this podcast will explore the Northwest music scene, how to navigate it, the resources available to you, and most importantly, the stories behind the people making things happen.

Episodes will be released every two weeks, highlighting different artists, producers, and business people who have established (or are establishing) themselves in the music scene.

The first episode is set for release Tuesday, January 9, 2018  (TODAY) featuring Sarah St. Albin. Check out our Spotify playlist to listen to the different artists we chat about, including Tobias the Owl, J GRGRY, and Sarah McLauchlan.
