This episode of The Modern Recordist is another edition of The 15 Minute Mixdown, the shorter/alternate episodes to our longer format shows, with a live in-studio guest.

On this edition of The 15 Minute Mixdown, I spend a few minutes talking about life being a journey, not a destination. Listen now:

Life being a journey instead of a destination is certainly something we’ve all heard, but do we truly know this? Join me as I take 15 minutes to explore this, and urge you to meditate on the present moment of your journey. I truly believe actively becoming more present in the journey of your daily life will ultimately make you a better songwriter, recording artist, and artistic visionary.


The Modern Recordist is a podcast devoted to the exploration and continual discussion around designing and living your life as an artistic visionary. Each week Jon Stinson, JD Tiner, and Parrish will venture on this journey, either in a casual hang out with a guest, or by diving into a specific topic for a few minutes in more of a monologue-structured format, a segment called The 15 Minute Mixdown.

Hear stories and learn from the most innovative, inspired, and talented songwriters artists, and recordists in the music scene. Spark your genius with actionable advice and takeaways. Become inspired and move to action as you design and live your life of an artistic visionary.
