Ken Andrews: absolute legend. You might know him from the incredible band Failure, or his band Year of the Rabbit, or his incredibly extensive resume as an engineer, or maybe you subscribe to his incredible YouTube channel or Patreon Page... If you shook your head through all of that, it's not too late. Dive into this chat and change you life now!
Ken has been sharing a ton of secrets from behind the board on his YouTube channel, but I got him to open up a bit more on this episode where we take a dive into the songwriting process of Failure, his relationship with the term "Space Rock", the magic of Keanu Reeves, how he's evolved as a musician and a producer since "Fantastic Planet", the magic of Fractal Audio, some of the most unique collaborations in the studio for his solo work, and much much more.
