EP. 151 - Sam McTrusty (Twin Atlantic)

Transparency. Scottish accent enthusiast, flamboyant dancer and humble rockstar, Sam McTrusty, is our guest on Episode 151 of Sappenin' Podcast! The Twin Atlantic songwriter opens up on a new era of his life, the band and never fitting in. In this conversation, we discuss his artistic nature to go against the grain, how he accidentally created a new album while writing for somebody else, heavy metal screams vs underground dance vibes, the ugly realities of music business, celebrating the tenth year anniversary of their breakthrough album Free, why cult fan classics like Crash Land were never singles, their bizarre Warped Tour experience, being one of the first bands back to play indoor venues, invading different scenes, people imitating that strong vocal twang, continuing as a two-piece with Ross, ridiculous situations, the future and more! This is way overdue, but worth the wait.
