On this episode of the Tip Jar Podcast I get to sit across the table from my good friend, drummer, and graphic designer, Charles Dew!  Charles is an incredible creative soul w/ an incredible work ethic.  If I had to describe Charles in one word it would be “kind”.  This guy loves people well.  He is also a Killer drummer!  We talk about drums, worship philosophy, and a little Star Wars.  Give it a listen!

Episode 8 – Kyle Lent (Austin Stone Worship)

Let me start off by saying that I am a HUGE Austin Stone Worship fan.  I love the creativity that oozes out of that place.  I also love the heart behind the leadership there.  My guest today is a large piece of the puzzle behind what they do.  He is not only the creative genius that comes up with stellar guitar hooks, but he is the audio engineer behind the records that come out of Austin Stone.  Kyle Lent is a Husband, father, and humble Beast at what he does!  This is a killer 30 min that you won’t wanna miss.

Episode 7 – Clay Caissie (Guitar tech for Chris Tomlin, Ringo Starr, Bruce Springsteen, and more)

Do you have those people in your life that are just good for the soul?  On Episode 7,  I get to hang out with my long time friend Clay Caissie.  Clay grew up in the Monroe/West Monroe area.  His life could be a New York Times best seller if he would write a book.  He has Tech’d for Michael W Smith, David Crowder, Chris Tomlin, Ringo Starr (and the All Star Band), and is currently working for “The Boss” Bruce Springsteen!  We talk about the road, gear, and Clay tells some funny stories about times spent w/ Crowder and others.  This is a Fun Conversation!

Episode 6 – Matt Podesla

I am so thankful that I continuously get opportunities to talk with and glean wisdom from guys that have been in the worship world for a long time!  Sometimes we can tend to put these people on pedestals, but I’ve come to find that they are just normal people just like you and me.

In Episode 6, I have a phone conversation with Matt Podesla!  Matt has played guitar with artist like John Mark McMillan, Matt Redman, Passion, and Matt Maher.  He loves what he does!  We talk about Bands we like, gear, and wisdom that he has collected over his tenure in the worship world.
