WATCH THE CONVERSATION WITH MATT SCANNELL
How many times has a song come to you in a dream and you were sure you'd remember it, so you rolled over and went back to sleep--only to wake to find it gone with the morning light?
When that happened to my friend Matt Scannell of Vertical Horizon, he got up. He got the song down. That song, "Everything You Want," became the #1 song on the Billboard charts the following Summer. It was the most played song on all radio formats that year. And Billboard named it one of the Top 50 Adult Radio Hits of All-Time.
The multi-platinum artist joined me for an open Zoom conversation on Wednesday 6/10/20 to talk about songs, guitar, being an artist, and so much more. He even played some of his songs.
This is not a conversation about the historic moment we are in. But I hope it will be one that reminds us all to keep working at how we attend to the important ideas that keep us up at night.
Here's wishing you all strength and safety where you are.
