Absolute honour chatting to Jason Lytle; singer and songwriter for the band Grandaddy, as well as solo musician and absolute legend, on this episode of the podcast. It's hard to describe how much it meant to me to chat with Jason, I'm incredibly thankful. 'Sophtware Slump' is an album that really affected me and my music taste in a major way, hearing it recently reworked and stripped back on the wooden piano was absolutely wonderful too. It's not just that album though, Jason's work just hits me where it hurts (in the best way possible) and; in particular, his solo release 'Yours Truly, The Commuter' gained new meaning when I had to go back to London and commute daily a while back. I don't think I ever quite cried at 8am on a packed Central Line tube, but I've sure come close (that's a lie, I've cried on the tube plenty of times).

We cover a lot on the episode. I was looking forward to chatting about Jason's relationship with skateboarding and how that affected his trajectory, I obviously wanted to talk about music, but we also touch on mental health, marketing, our relationship with social media, finding balance and everything in between. I really hope you enjoy this one. Thanks Jason.
