Moving with Intention, Dancing with Fear (ft. Adam Lawrence of The Mad Sugars)

A calling card of The Mad Sugars‘ chief songsmith Adam Lawrence is intention. His diligence and attention to detail comes through in every facet of the band’s platform — including the concepts behind their infectious garage rock dance pop hits.

Today, we welcome Adam back to the show for the first time since early in our OG run in 2013. We discuss the band’s evolution, and the personal and professional growth comes with it.

This episode of The Quinn Spinn was recorded and produced at Helping Our Music Evolve, Nashville, TN.

Embracing our ‘Alter Ego’ with Shawney Rainne

Shawney Rainne is a bona fide artist-preneur! The singer, performer, and clothing designer is known for her relentless creative spirit, and her ability to embrace all sides of herself as she continues to develop her artistry.

Shawney’s EP, ‘Alter Ego,’ reflects that embrace, and the choice each of us has to create harmony between our different personas. We discuss this, artistry as a business, and much more!

Nashville Meets Bethlehem with Brontë Fall

The last time we checked in with Teri Bracken of Brontë Fall was 2020. Touring had come to a halt, and Teri had begun working on the songs that would become her latest EP, Winter, informed by life in transition during the pandemic.

We’ve come full circle, and Teri is hitting the road to join us in Bethlehem, PA at our Nashville Meets Bethlehem songwriter night at SteelStacks. For Teri, this full circle moment brings her back to her college town as an alumna of Lehigh University, whose musical beginnings took place just a few blocks up the street. Check in to learn about the journey that has led here!
