The Musicians Guild welcomes Amber Carew (Saddle Creek Records)
Play • 2 hr 20 min

This week we welcome Amber Carew to The Musicians Guild. Amber is A&R for Saddle Creek and if you don't know what that is we discuss the former and current meaning of that title somewhere in the conversation. I really appreciate the existence of people like Amber in the music industry as her ethos is informed by her coming from one of the most amazing places on earth; New Orleans. The sincerity and honesty with which she approaches her role in signing new artists as well as how she exists within this reality we all share is truly great. Also in this conversation we get into discussing the kind record deals to NOT sign, manic home cleaning, my industry person radar, how sobriety inevitably disappoints certain people, Amber growing up in New Orleans and coming up in the New Orleans music scene, how things get harder after you sign a record deal and much much more.

You, yes you. You are a great person, and I really appreciate you listening to my pod and taking interest in anything I make. I would be nothing without it, so thank you thank you thank you. I'll never stop being so grateful for it. I'll never stop saying it. Get over it.
