Sometimes the creative process can't be explained or understood but it should always be appreciated. So what happens to a culture when art isn't appreciated anymore? And what is the impact of Spotify and streaming services on the creative landscape? Today on the Spiritual Spiral, I am thrilled to welcome Seattle-based producer, film composer and multi-instrumentalist, Phillip Peterson to the show. I have been blessed to know Phil for over 15 years and he has played the strings on my last three records including my latest single, Animals. Phil and I have a wonderful conversation about the impact of Spotify and Phil explains why he prefers Youtube over other streaming sites. We talk about the creative process, the Seattle music scene and how social media is impacting artists everywhere. He also offers fantastic advice on ways that artists can bring new streams of revenue to their business. Phil is one of the most talented musicians and producers in the music business today and be sure to find Phil on Instagram @houseofbreakingglass.
