This week we kick back, relax and talk about life. At the top we discuss starting over and fresh starts. It's scary but with the right perspective it could be the blessing you've always been looking for. Then, Michael tells a story about getting frustrated and sometimes that's bad, but sometimes it's ok to tap into frustration as long as it's channeled in the right way. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad. Finally, we break down some current events.

On this episode of Creative Control, Jaye sits down with friend and all around good dude, Josh Glancy. Josh is a musician and multi instrumentalist who grew up in the central Kentucky music scene with Jaye. During this time, Josh played with many aspiring bands, eventually transitioning into a life of bartending and eventually making his way to today, living a 9 to 5 lifestyle while supporting a family. Josh and Jaye talk about the music scene that made them what and who they are today, as well as tackle issues that others have of getting back into creativity when life makes you busy.

On this episode of Soundoff, Jaye touches base on the last Soundoff and discusses some recent events reported by an article on Pitchfork (link below). The article points out that A-level musicians such as Taylor Swift, U2, Paul McCartney and more have signed a petition to the United States Congress to reform the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The petition also takes issue with tech companies and names YouTube. Jaye gives his thoughts on the issues with this, as well as the implications meeting these artists demands.

Back again with another Creative Control with Ryan Snelling form FIlmbeef and Schmoeville. Jaye and Ryan discuss taking a trip to see Mark Ellis do stand up comedy, creating content while there, and getting advice from a successful comedian and YouTuber. Ryan and Jaye work through being on top of a mountain and having to come back down, how do we get back to those places? Do we even have control over it?

Soundoff returns as Jaye tackles a common subject on this podcast, the music industry. This time however, the main topic is what's wrong with the music industry, how to fix it, and more importantly music streaming services and album exclusivity.

Creative Control are conversations with creative individuals about their struggles, successes, and failure. For those living a creative lifestyle and on a creative journey, you're not alone.

On this episode, Jaye talks with long time ITG family member, stand up comedian and host of the Predictably Drunk podcast, Sam Marcoux. Sam is based out of San Jose, California. Though not a traditional hot bed of comedy, Sam is constantly on the grind. He is one of the hardest working creative individuals I know. In addition to comedy, Sam is fluent in the business side of being creative, as well as a passionate podcaster.

On this episode we discuss balancing the business side of being creative and knowing when to have fun and when to work. Additionally, Sam talks in depth about not falling into the party mentality when there is work to be done, even when that lifestyle is part of the greater community you're in.

Lastly, we go deep on talking about podcast struggles. We discuss growth, change, planning as podcasters and ways to move forward in the future.

Saywordson77 himself, Mr. Aaron Ross joins us on a Soundoff episode to discuss one of our favorite bands of all time, Brand New. Brand New is one of America's greatest ever rock band. Don't believe me? Whatever... anyways, here us talk about these monster of rock and emo. Brand New is one of the most celebrated "underground" (sort of) bands of modern music in general, as well as one of the most frustrating according to me (Jaye). We discuss their impact on us personally, we walk through their catalog and talk about not only why we love the band so much, but what we think about upcoming projects.

If you enjoy Aaron's views, he will most definitely return to the show in the future but be sure to check out his social media networks on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook - @saywordson77
