The Creative Path Podcast with Matt Olson
Candid one on one conversations about the ins and outs of trying to live a creative life
Episode 48 is a great conversation with the talented Jesse Wolf. Jesse is a songwriter & musician who is also the owner, operator, and founder of the La Crosse, WI based GroundBreaking Studios where he has recorded his own musical projects as well as a whole pile of local and regional bands. Having only met Jesse briefly before this conversation I really enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about his musical history and dive into the joy’s and difficulties of running a small recording studio.
A great conversation with the wonderful Adam Wiltgen. Having now known Adam for more than 15 years I have seen him grow from a lover of music, to a musician, to a music promoter and now ultimately into a powerful and positive force in the greater arts community through his work with a variety of art and community focused non-profits, and most currently in his role as program director for Lanesboro arts, a multi-disciplinary arts organization based in Lanesboro,MN.
A great conversation with the amazing Joel Korte. Joel is the founder and owner of the Minnesota based Chase Bliss Audio where he designs some of the most innovative and highest quality audio effects available. In addition to being an audio effects guru and all around good guy, Joel is also a speech-pathologist who serves as co-leader of the Minneapolis chapter of the National Stuttering Association. If that wasn’t enough, he is also a musician who plays with the very cool Minneapolis based rock band, Ghost Towns of The West.

From the host –
“Over the past 18 years I have had success and failure as a musician. There have been periods where I sacrificed everything to remain on my creative path and other times where I tried desperately to escape it. My motivations and goals have changed drastically over the years, what I get out of it, or perceive to get out, each conclusion remains in question.
I started this podcast to have a reason to ask people about their creative path because by doing so I ultimately gain new insight into my own.” – Matt Olson
