Susan Cattaneo

Americana Singer-Songwriter

Today’s episode is a little different. In Episode 36 singer-songwriter Susan Cattaneo and I discussed the lessons that leaders can learn from those who lead and teach in creative environments. Since she is my wife, we also discussed the pros and cons of working with your spouse. In this episode, Susan comes back and we talk about the process of writing, recording and producing her album All Is Quiet.
