Jayme Stone is a musician, singer, songwriter, composer, and producer based in Colorado. He talks to Matt about the genesis of his albums Africa to Appalachia (2008) and Jayme Stone's Lomax Project (2015). Writing his latest album, aWake (2020), allowed Jayme to process some of the grief he felt upon losing his brother Michael in 2017. During the Covid-19 quarantine, Jayme engineered & produced the forthcoming debut album from Max Allard, who will be a guest on this show this fall. In addition to all the music Jayme makes, he is about to launch in August 2021 an online music business course called Compose Your Career.
