When Niverville singer-songwriter Ian Krochak was last on the podcast, he was just in the process of re-launching himself as an artist after a number of years out of the game.
We caught up and talked about the development of his country/roots-rock sound, tapping into creativity through the pandemic, a podcast project he’ll be launching soon, and much more.
Note: This interview was a little longer than it appears here, but we had a bad connection for part of the interview (Ian was on a cell phone and there was a storm), so some of it was unusable, unfortunately.
