We start this episode with a few words about the East TN Film Gala event with Knoxville Filmmaker, Gabriel Crutchfield. Then around 7:00 minutes in to the show, I speak with Danny Rendo, Singer/songwriter of the Knoxville based electronic/industrial rockband, Deconbrio. He educates my brain on the value and responsibility of live performance while taking me on a journey into the world of a DIY musician.
