Stephen Kirkwood — Approaching Education Holistically

Have you ever felt as if you could be doing more with your music, or life in general? One look at Stephen Kirkwood’s accomplishments across different ventures may send you running, or, inspire you to be as productive as him.

There’s much to be said about a person who is a successful entrepreneur while actively releasing his own music, engineering tracks for others, and doing A&R for record labels – and much of it is covered in this insightful interview.

To seal the deal in this episode you get two for the price of one, as Stephen is joined by his partner at SKapade Studios, Steven Galloni. This one is well worth the listen!
