  • Great episode (as always) 😁🙏 Always enjoy listening to your podcasts. I’ve been playing music and gigging professionaly for over 12 years now. I tour in the US and play several gigs a week. I’m not in my 20s or even 30s anymore… unfortunately 😋 believe me it’s impossible for me to now function on very little sleep. Your body will remind you about it and stop functioning.
    Keep up the good work. 💪

    • Haha, Eric I feel you! Thanks for leaving the kind words 😀 Someone with your experience certainly knows what it takes and I’m happy to hear you have embraced the sleep!! Be sure to let me know if there’s a topic you’d like to see covered, appreciate your loyal listening <3
