Welcome to another exciting - and indeed very special Episode - of "The Good Listening To" Podcast with me Chris Grimes!

Please welcome to the "GLT Clearing" today:  Deanna Bogart - the multi instrumentalist & multi-talented American Road Musician extraordinaire! 

The "Queen of Options!" 

A road musician - currently - without a road.  But as she explains: "There's always options!"

"Welcome to Deanna Land!" as she says on her website at www.deannabogart.com 

"When it comes to Deanna Bogart, everyone wants to claim her as their own - her hometown, her fans, her fellow musicians and even her instruments.  She's that good – and that good-natured.

With 40 years as a road musician, award-winning bandleader multi instrumentalist Deanna Bogart is adored by her fans for her adventurous, original and diverse music career. She is recognized for her dazzling keyboards, soulful saxophone, smoky vocals and cut-above songwriting. Expanding now to include producing festivals, artists, as an arranger and as a sought after educator/mentor/master classes/creative coach while nonstop gigging around the globe and playing with stellar musicians everywhere. 
(well, till now anyway) a new release in the making..."

Hurrah!

So - thanks for listening to another episode of a "GLT with me CG!"

The Podcast series that features "The Clearing":  Where all good questions come to be asked and all good stories come to be told!

With some lovely juicy storytelling metaphors to also enjoy along the way:

The Clearing itself - A Tree (where we get to "shake your tree to see which storytelling apples fall out, in the form of a lovely storytelling exercise called "5-4-3-2-1") - some Alchemy - some Gold - and finally a Cake with a Cherry on Top!

Think "Desert Island Discs" but in a Clearing! 

Also think about William Shakespeare - and about Jaques in "As You Like It" in particular:

"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages..."

Jaques: Act II Scene VII

And as my Guest in the Podcast:  Now is your 'moment in the sunshine' to share your story!

Who are you? What's your story? And what 'life-lessons-learned-along-the-way' would you like to share with us? And just to get bit "existential on yo ass" too (!) what would you like your legacy to be?  How would you most like to be remembered?

And all my guests have at least 2 things in common: They are all Creative individuals  - and all with an interesting story to be told!

If you'd like to find out more, then please do check out my websites www.secondcurve.uk + www.instantwit.co.uk - and there's also a dedicated "Good Listening To" Facebook Group c/o the link above.

Plus if you'd be interested in the experience of being given "a damn good listening to" yourself, or you'd like to explore the idea of some Personal Impact Coaching from me CG - to help level-up your confidence, communication, and personal impact c/o my online Coaching proposition: The Second Curve "Zoom Room" - then, by all means, do get in touch via any of the usual social media channels (see above) or you can email me at [email protected]
