Hover presents Song Exploder Live Podcast: Will Butler
Join us for a live recording of Song Exploder, where musicians take apart a song, and piece by piece, tell the story of how it was made. The show is produced and edited by Hrishikesh Hirway. His own background as a songwriter, producer, and arranger (with his project The One AM Radio) led him to doing remixes for other artists, and every time he would hear the isolated tracks for their songs, he found it fascinating. Inspired by that, along with a love of editing, and stories about problem-solving and creativity, he created the popular podcast.
Joining Hrishi is Will Butler of Arcade Fire, who's releasing his first solo record, Policy, on March 10th.
This session presented by Hover.
