Jimmy Eat World's Jim Adkins has announced 'Pass-Through Frequencies', a new podcast series, via Fender Guitars, focusing on the art of songwriting and the creative process that comes with it.
The first episode is set to be released on August 06 and will feature blink-182's Mark Hoppus!
Though the list of future guests includes the likes of Steve Aoki, Fun.'s Nate Reuss, Dashboard Confessional's Chris Carrabba, Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard, Tegan and Sara's Tegan Quinn and Pedro The Lion's David Bazan.
Jim had this to say about putting the podcast together:
“When I’m working on a song, it almost feels like I am channeling something. It’s like I am holding the rudder with only a vague clue who might be paddling. I have to find a balanced mindset of being wholly present...and not “there” at all.
The creative process has as much reward and mystery as it did 26 years ago when I started writing songs with Jimmy Eat World. I am still totally fascinated. In this series I chat with music people about their process, preparation and execution. As well as whatever may get thrown in on the side.”
Sounds great doesn't it?
