His easy banter with guests allows the artists to spin their origin tales and creative processes freely but with well-defined goals. Dreampath gives us front row seats as Bryan and the artist turn [page] after page of their evolution and progression. Thanks Bryan and thanks to the artists who flow through this podcast’s waters. Well done.”
– Gerald Johnson (bass guitarist on Steve Miller’s albums “The Joker” and “Abracadabra”).
“I find sharing my experiences with the world to be healing; while I have done this through painting, doing so in an interview heard by thousands was especially meaningful. Sharing ones pain and their reasons to do what they do can be inspiring and transformative to those who may have similar setbacks, worries, and dreams. The concept of Bryan’s podcast is incredible – it provides an important inspirational cornerstone for aspiring creatives because it shows how career dreams and goals come true.Bryan made the interview so easy and fluid. I was comfortable speaking to him about my life and past and he allowed me the space and time to work through some of these issues during the interview. I was grateful for this opportunity. Throughout the interview I found answers to questions that had lived in my subconscious and I never thought they would surface until he pointed them out.”
