Episode 16: Sara Watkins


Today on Inside the Musician’s Brain, Chris begins the episode by sharing his thoughts about music genres, why we have them, and why they don’t really matter. The episode continues with Chris talking with successful singer-songwriter Sara Watkins (Nickel Creek, I’m With Her) about creating her first concept album and how it came to be. Sara also shares the moment she realized at a young age that being a full time musician was a feasible career. Stick around to hear about Sara’s time with The Decemberists and how it changed her perception of performing live.
