During his conversation with Jack River on this week’s episode of To Rebel In The Times, we learn how Briggs has brought about change within his community and industry by starting small and staying determined. It’s a discussion filled with inspiration from a man that never gives up! Listen here now.
Last week on Episode 3, the wonderful Kita Alexander took to the the mic for a beautifully honest conversation about motherhood in the music industry. Listen to Episode 3 here where Jack River and Kita Alexander discuss a call for more mothers and females in executive positions within the industry to allow for a broader perspective.
Episode 3 has so far also piqued the interest of Turia Pitt and Bridget Hustwaite who both shared their admiration and support for the discussion on their respective Instagram accounts with Bridget stating, “Definitely the conversation I hope will spark industry people to reach out to their artists and ask how they can better fit their life into their music,” and Turia expressing that she genuinely loved the intimate conversation.
