The Struggling Artist Podcast

Trev Allen, the Struggling Artist, talks with guests about being Creatives, mental health, life struggles, and anything else that pops up. The Struggling Artist Podcast is not an interview podcast, it's a Conversational one that flows organically in hopes to provide Creatives a familiar and relaxed experience. The ultimate goal of the podcast is to show listeners that we are all human and have struggles. Also, it's never too late to start creating. This podcast, much like the conversations on it, have organically grown to become more music focused, in that our guests are in one way or the other tied to the music industry. However, sometimes friends of the show and other creatives will hop in to chop it up with Trev. Episodes drop Tuesday mornings.
