Maison Guidry (Jonathan Scales Fourchestra) - The Real You

"Creativity stems from the mind.  Feeling stems from the heart.  When you combine the two together you get character."

Maison Guidry is a multi-instrumentalist who may not be known to many people. He is an extremely advanced drummer who pushes the boundaries of what is possible. He commits himself to thirteen hours of practice per day, however, due to a recent injury to his shoulder he has had to take some time off. 

To find a conversation in a podcast with Maison is rare and therefore it is a great honour to feature him here because he has some incredibly compelling thoughts regarding how people may want to pursue their life in order to gain a fuller experience day to day. He is uncompromising with his art. I hope that in the future his name becomes more widely recognized because there is no one else like him.

Why Should You Listen?

I get a lot of emails and messages from listeners who are a bit uncertain about what they want. Sometimes they realize that they love drumming but they aren’t sure it is meant for them as a professional career. What are the influences that bring people to this state of mind? This is one of the biggest takeaways from this episode. It allows you, the listener, to reflect on your own choices and thoughts about what your life could become. This is a common dilemma with some of the drummers I have spoken with who listen to this podcast.

Besides that, this is just an incredibly interesting conversation about life and choices in life. There is also some Star Wars stuff in here too because Maison loves Star Wars.
