Crash and Ride

Apr 12, 2020

Maurice Rickard is one of the most prolific musicians and composers I have ever met. He is constantly creating.

We talked about how drone music and staying constantly creatively engaged has helped him to focus his mind and stay on top of his periodic bouts of anxiety.
