IE034 - Steven Kemner of Hotel Neon // The Sound of Rescue

Steven is a musician living in Ohio and 1/3rd of Hotel Neon (remember Andrew Tasselmyer from episode 009?), the band that toured with Andy in 2016 on the Slow Spaces Tour. He joins the Goodboys for the whole episode to discuss his process of writing music both individually and for the groups he is in, the way in which he views music in general and the profound meaning it holds for him in life, his struggles with sleep and learning to take better care of himself physically, his affinity for high ABV beers and a few stories from the road. OG Maco's ineffable gem "U Guessed It" may or may not be highlighted once again on this episode.
