Episode 32: "I'll do my best to free them, but first I want to see them," with guest Kate McGarry
IN THIS EPISODE:
We are joined by Grammy-nominated songwriter, singer, and educator Kate McGarry for a far-reaching conversation about carrying the weight of our ancestors, being present and generous onstage, creating community, and much more (including sitting in the Kennedy family pew at church during her Massachusetts childhood). Kate is a true singers' singer and a beautiful spirit; her definition of harmony as "energetic alignment" is as elegant as it is concise.
THE HERO'S JOURNEY
Kate mentioned going through a "hero's journey" when making a recording (Hilary identifies more with "stomach-churning neurosis," but "hero's journey" has a much better ring to it). Kate's analogy is perfect: the creative process is a journey, and we hope this graphic is helpful to you the next time you're about to start something new!
