On this episode of INSIDE MUSIC, host James Shotwell connects with Cody DeLong, founder and CEO of Sound Rink. What Cody and his team aim to do every day is create unique VIP experiences to help artists better connect with their fans without dealing with all the red tape and extra work that comes with trying to setup something special for those hoping to meet their favorite artists. It’s a very cool idea, and it’s one that is starting to catch on at an alarming rate. Cody tells us all about his company’s origin, as well as where they hope to go in the future, and somewhere in the middle both he and James confess their undying love for The Spill Canvas. It’s a little different than some of our recent episodes, but we believe you’ll enjoy it all the same.

The music you hear in the intro to ‘Inside Music’ this week is “All Over You” from The Spill Canvas. You can learn more about that song, as well as the album it hails from, on Leon’s official website.
