my guest for episode 28 is director/photographer, andrew shapter. i've known and known of, andrew for years and years but i've never gotten to sit down and talk to him at length. i am really glad i did. andrew made a beautiful movie called, "before the music dies"  a documentary inspired by a conversation about music with his musician brother just before his untimely passing. it's basically about the death of the "old" music business and what musicians are doing to adapt. it's narrated by forest whitaker and stars, erykah badu, doyle bramhall II, elvis costello, dave matthews, ?uestlove, steve poltz and my liars & saints bandmate, kacy crowley. it's an eye-opening and inspiring film. you should watch it. i hope you enjoy my conversation with andrew, i did. to find out more about andrew, go to http://www.andrewshapter.com/
