"When Guitar Center asked me to be a part of this new podcast, I was excited at the opportunity to engage artists in conversations they're most passionate about: music," said Harcourt. "No noise, no advertisers. Just the stories behind the great artists of our time, told from their perspective. I'm excited that Guitar Center recognizes the potential in a program like this."
At: Guitar Center with Nic Harcourt is free to stream or download, and is readily available for subscription via iTunes, Zune and Blackberry Podcasts. The current podcast includes an in-depth live studio interview with innovative artist and producer Quincy Jones, featuring the legend's take on art, production and an uncertain future of the music industry. "I think the consumer wants to be closer to the creator," said Jones. "We are all trying to figure it out. We've never faced it before, but it's here."
