Devin Shelton, vocalist and bassist of Emery and a solo artist in his own right, joined us for a conversation about leaving his job as a worship pastor within a church to pursue his music career and to manage several facets of the BadChristian clothing and merch line. He speaks openly about the discord of working for a church versus being a musician with full creative control, the (unpleasant) nature of formulaic worship music and Christianity as a money-making industry, his own journey of questioning and uncertainty while maintaining faith and shares a deeply personal story about the passing away of his mother last year. He closes on a lighter note with a hilarious story from the road involving the other members of Emery and fireworks.
