The series goes beyond a typical session performance and delves into the mind of the artist, inviting them to discuss their inspirations, teach the viewer a few of their favorite riffs, and detail the technique they use to craft their art. Delivering a new episode every month, each clip incorporates both in-depth conversations and stripped down performances, providing the viewer with an intimate, behind-the-scenes experience.
