Coen passed away in two thousand sixteen and This was recorded at the royal dramatic theatre in stockholm and early twenty seventeen. This is this is a full stage. Setup with lots of guest vocalists guest musicians playing a part in this the actors from the royal dramatic theatre there. I almost feels like it's ambitious. But at the nervous energy of doing like a play or performance and knowing all of your lines and being ready to go out there and perform how. How much nervous energy was there a lot this. This was the first show that we did as well. So i don't know why we recorded the first but there aren't estates and like we we purposely did not remove the mistakes.

"Not only my mom's instruments, but her incredible record collection that from my memory for memory ranged from Judy Collins and Woody Guthrie. All the way to Rolling Stones. Led Zeppelin Otis Redding. Sam Cooke, Does that all sound right, Mom? Yes, absolutely. And this may be out of turn, But I don't think I've ever seen you as frustrated as we had to. We had to leave our our childhood home. For a while because things got bad we when we came back. The one thing that was missing from our house was my mom's record collection. Mom, I don't think I've seen you that upset. This day. Yes. And the only record that was left on the shelf was blood on the tracks. Bob Dylan. Yes. I think the title was supposed to mean something. It was it was. Yes. I think it was sending a message. Very a long winded way of saying her. I had access to that collection and finally again when I had put the final scratching her one of my mom's covered it albums she got she would she do? She went to Radio Shack and got me a small turntable small speakers and said here. You know, Here's some lunch money, Get yourself start your own collection kind of thing. And here's a few of mind that Since you've already kind of had your way with you can have those ones as well. So the music from my mom music I was hearing in the music store than my mom's personal collection and then my personal evolution. Towards music. The grew through my formative years into hip hop solely hip hop for a good decade. All of that. Ends up being Some part of the sound that I make. Ellen. How'd you feel about hip hop? When Ben started listening to it? Did you feel like you understood it? I don't. I don't know that I understood it. I think it took some time. But again, you know, taking a page from my mother's book that I would never censor what he what he read or what he listened to. The list. But let's also say Mom and W A is a lot Further out. From Bruce Springsteen or Leonard Cohen. Then the birds were from Woody Guthrie. So it it challenged the sense. I mean, that's that's all right. That's that's true, and there was a certain amount of violence or misogyny and Which bothered me at the time. So would you have conversations about that? Gosh, Ben did. I don't think I really really did. Did we? I think religion or what? You wanted to listen. I reflect that back. Conversations I try to have with my teenagers. So if you did, I hope you have better luck with me than I expected. Hey, Uh, I hear that Let's take a short break here and then we'll talk some more. If you're just joining us.

"Judy Collins singing Leonard Cohen's Suzanne. In the mid sixties, she made a name for herself by championing pop songs as art songs. She picked Leonard Cohen, the Beetles in My Life and things by Bob Dylan and Donovan and others. And Judy was able with her beautiful soprano voice and the clever arrangements that were staged behind her to really transform A new wave of pop music into something that transcended the teen market.

A Morning Message On Waking Up
"All right yesterday I was full of. Spitting Vinegar for sure. So if you haven't listened to yesterday's episode just brace yourself. Brace yourself because I had this. Kind of Ha as I was walking down the stairs down to my gym, my apartment building. And I want to explain a little bit more about moments like that, and that's the beauty of these warning messages. My friend is this is uncensored. I don't want to Polish these morning messages a want you to feel the intensity or the sadness or the true emotion. As. It is emerging for me. Because if it's doing it for me, it's doing it for you in some way, and this is the whole idea. Of Waking, up. What does it mean to wake up? You may have heard this expression. That you know you meditate to become enlightened. Well, it doesn't mean that you're GONNA sit or go up to cave and spend the rest of your life glancing at your navel so to speak. Waking up means seeing reality. As it is without filter. and. It may just happen for a second here or there. And you may see the truth. And know the truth. And you know what scratch that there is no, may it is happening? All the time. George Leonard Said No, it was Leonard Cohen said. Something about it's the crack in the wall, it's how the light gets in. There are these moments that are happening all day long we're we are waking up to the truth where we have the hunch where we have the impulse where we know what's right and what's wrong. Where we know what we need and what we don't need. And when we are able to recognize. That moment. And Trust. that. This is true. That's how we begin to really change our lives. It's how we begin to walk. In our own way. To. Think. It's like march to our own beat I totally mix up mess metaphors all the time. My husband loves to make fun of me because I'm always mixing metaphor. So bear with me in my imperfection. But seriously. Yesterday as I was walking down the stairs I had this. piff any that I was allowing the news feed. To enter my psyche. Without permission. And so that's why I just turned on my voice recorder and and spewed out to you because I want you to know what it feels like to have that kind of moment of awakening. It's happening all day long. But here's what usually happens. One, we are so caught in our busy business and doing this. That, we don't. Allow. Ourselves. To. Experience. To, even just stop like I stopped on the landing of that stairwell. To make a change because it was that powerful. And it's happening for you. These hunches? These these knocks on the door. These whispers in your ear. All Day Long. Can you recognize it's happening. And Trust Yourself. Your. Gut Your. Inspiration your intuition. This is how we start to become self authoring individuals. Making our own choice. Listening to our own voice moving from that place seeing reality as it is. Now. It doesn't happen overnight. There's very, very few people who have had awakenings and the are permanent awakenings forever. For most of us, it's these little glimpses. These moments. Of Light. Right the cracks in the wall with a light gets in. It's like Oh my God look at that. That's it. And if there's anything or any reason why I do what I do Not because I'm enlightened 'cause I am far from it. But I trust these moments I trust him because I've allowed them in. And have allowed myself to investigate them. And all I am doing right here is, is that whisper in your ear to trust yourself?
Glimpsing Aliveness With Cara Bradley
"It. Could warning from my? Hike. On Valley, Forge Mountain actually mount misery I am on Mount Misery in Valley Forge Park. I've been wanting to do this just to grab my voice recorder and come and do something spontaneous with you for a while. So thank you for joining in with these morning messages. They are have been for me just an UN leaching of creativity spontaneity Tearing US I said yesterday and a lot of God a lot of like, ouch. Do I really want to put that out there who listen? Maybe you can hear the water as a Britt. Creek here. So what came to me today was to chat with you a little bit about aliveness. And about glimpsing aliveness. All of the things that I talk about a really coming at awakening. Awaking- awakening out of your busy thinking mind so that you can directly experience the brilliance of your life. And we take different turns. We look at this this gem from different angles, and so that's why why it may seem sometimes like I am jumping around. But really what we're doing is we're just changing perspective because there's no one path. There are infinite number of paths to waking up out of the the dream state of your mind. So. Being in nature for me. Is One of those paths that I take daily that I have to take daily because it it plugs me into. My sense of aliveness like nothing else I mean there's other things. But A, but nature's just so predictable. So glimpsing aliveness is simply. Allowing yourself to be with what is. To be with the gravel beneath your feet in the green around you in the sunlight peeking through the forest and the smell of summer the sounds of birds without having to. Label anything without having to. Analyze anything but you just start to melt or Mesh with the moment as it's unfolding. This is the process of awakening. And we've all had these moments. Every, single one of us if you've never sat down to meditate, it doesn't matter. You've had this experience. And I just want to encourage you to develop this capacity. To glimpse your own aliveness. To pause moment to moment so that you can. Hang out in the experience as it arises as it emerges. and. So it may be through music cooking may be through yoga. May Be on your run Maybe be in your car by yourself who knows. It can happen an infinite number of ways. When we start to pay attention to the glimpses of aliveness I talk about this I write about this a lot my book, and it's really informed my life just just recognizing glimpses. Moment to moment sometimes, we get caught in the thick of our mind. oftentimes we caught. In the thick of our mind to the news feed and what the world is kind of. Barrage us with. But then there are those cracks in the wall right Leonard Cohen says, that's where the light shines through there are those moments between moments. There are those precious. the the smell of coffee, the the site of Sun hitting the top of the trees you know the catching of somebody's is holding it there. The these are glimpses beyond the veil. Beyond. The veil of the thinking busy judging doubting fearing mind. And so I offer you a piece of my walk here as I. Look around. Bucks playing around. I hear the birds water and. You know it's just to be with that's it. Nothing. Special nothing profound. This is our birthright. It's our birthright. To recognize our own aliveness in the life force that moves through us. So. How do you glimpse aliveness? and. Once you start noticing you're gonNA start noticing more. And once you start noticing it more. then. The these moments. Start to if you're lucky start to lengthen. And the duration of these glimpses. Start. To. Become longer. And it's then in these glimpses in in a longer glimpse that you start to really hear. Your Voice. Your source, your source intelligence come through.

Music streaming may actually be falling because of Coronavirus
"All right. Let's talk a little bit about listening to music. You'd think maybe with a lot more people staying home more people would be listening to music and you'd be wrong courts notes that Italy's spotify users averaged eighteen point three million total streams of the top one hundred songs per day in February two thousand nineteen but since a national quarantine was announced march nineth total streams of the top. One hundred songs have not top fourteen. Point four million. That's just under four million less. There was a twenty three percent drop between March third and March seventeenth in the United States. Total spotify streams of the top. Two hundreds fell to seventy seven million on March seventeenth the lowest total so far this year. Uk France and Spain have also seen drops. Now maybe that when you're shut inside you just go for less popular songs flattening the curve if you will But it it does seem like maybe people. Just don't listen to as much music right now. Because they're not no situation. Yeah it's it's the commuting has dropped you know people are maybe going on. Few were outdoor exercise. Long form stuff where you listen to music. Definitely the case with me. I don't not any good reason but I don't listen to a lot of streaming music at home but I do when I'm out and about so my own use has gone down quite a bit. I'm just waiting for the surge. Unlike Leonard Cohen playlists. Or you know semi depressed. Folksy songwriters. You forgot how much you liked until you were really depressed about. Not being able to leave. Your House. Nbc surgeon playlists. Nobody's ever heard of. We've seen an extreme spike in. Everybody knows Yeah I do think this is an interesting thing because you would think like. Oh more people with more time. Maybe means more music but they're doing other things they're watching videos playing video games and the music is like you say Sarah for for going outside and hanging out with fewer people are doing or in your car when you're driving to work which you're people are doing that so yeah.

"You are from Maine. Yes whereabouts are you from in. What is your hometown like? I'm from the town of Yarmouth Maine about seven thousand people. It's a great little suburban town. It's right outside of Portland which is a great small city great place to the classic kind of place that like when you're sixteen years old seventeen years old. You're like get me out of here. This is so boring. This sucks and then it doesn't take that long to be like. Oh you know what it's pretty cool like is a pretty place It spread on the coast. Means just a cool place you know. I think there's other small suburban towns in America that actually are probably the Really Boring this isn't one of them. It's actually a cold place. Let's the accent like the accent I can't there really isn't much of one. You have to get up into Maine to get into accent territory. I can't really I can't really do. I didn't really grow up with it. Disappointing Yeah Inter. Southern southern is It's really no different than vermonter. New Hampshire Rhode Island or Massachusetts. Although I guess sometimes there is A. It doesn't really have the Boston accent. I find the main accent. Would I know of it to be very similar to the western Massachusetts accent? Where there's like you can't get the From the The air it's like a dip down and then backup Yup Yup Yup. There's that thing which might be some form of Mandarin actually interesting moving on one thing that you aren't intentionally taught or a lot of people aren't intentionally taught to do is to listen to music You are basically a professional music fan. You've managed musicians. Signed musicians. Worked very talented songwriters throughout your career. What was it like for you to start discovering music at a young age? That's really interesting. I've never thought of it that that's a good. I'm going to steal that from now on you May Young Age. You mean like really young like when I was a kid merger you mean like when I first got into professional. Yeah I have another question about like about like your identity when it came to listening and discovering and then when you started to develop a fine taste but for this question I just wanted to know like when you first started listening to music. What was it like? Was there like an immediate connection or were you just like whatever this music and were in Louis stuff. Oh Yeah because a kid. There was definitely a huge connection. It's like the only thing I was really passionate about. Since I was like a little kid you know like eight seven or eight or something like I mean I remember just being so obsessed with records My parents had crates of old records from the sixties. Everything from the beach. Boys to Neil Young Bob Dylan to like the monkey is and you know. Funny stuff like that And I just remember like sitting there listening to records in studying the packaging and you know that was a time where the act the Physical Act of listening to music was as compelling as the music itself you know like you could get lost in the process of putting the needle on a record and listening to it and and reading who these people were and you didn't know it was just this big mystery. All you knew was what you were hearing. And whatever text and photos were in the sleeve so it was just this you know at this mysterious element to it that I became obsessed with it was like almost sounds like an adventure. Yeah exactly it was an adventurous. It was like it was exploring the unknown. Every time you found some new record And then you also wouldn't know anything about it or you wouldn't have any sense if anyone else knew anything about it like I remember talking to people at school and being like you ever heard of this artist or that artist and it was equal chances that someone would say like Yeah I've heard of Leonard Cohen. He's a big deal. Everyone knows him. And I'm like Oh okay or like does everyone know about this other person you know like I have no. You have no sense of things. It isn't like today when you just. You can see how many like instagram followers they have. Or whatever and you know within like a few clicks or whatever you can tell like more than you would ever possibly a million years want or need to know about any any. Wasn't that so hilarious when you discover so on you're like what a great discovery and you instagram. And they have like a million yes. Yeah Yeah that used to not happen. I know it's fun when it happens the other way. You assume someone say huge. He looked them up. And you're like what was this person not like for me. Sometimes when I do look at someone's numbers there is like either that like extreme. You know on the scale of extremes either. There's like a million followers. There's like one hundred in when I find that somebody has like a hundred instagram followers. I feel this like great despair. It's like Oh this is terrible right. What can I do probably nothing? Probably nothing unless you have millions of dollars yet. The correlation between quality and exposure is non-existent. Really which can be fun sometimes for fans not so fun for the artist but it kind of seems like for you. It's been a career long struggle of choosing performance over business. Yeah more so at different points. But Yeah Yeah. Why do you think that exists? I think a lot of it has to do with It's not even so much of -gistically thing as it is a perception thing like I'm not allowed to be feeling like I'm not allowed to be a musician if I'm working in music and that was something. I learned early on that. Really kind of bummed me out because I it never occurred to me before I was just like. I have car payments and student loan debt and bills and rent and all these things like you know I. I need to get a job. I can't just be a musician like you know. I need to get a fulltime job immediately. So thinking what did I just find job and music like it's the one thing I wanna do and I didn't even know what the music industry was. It was like there must be jobs in music right there. I know that there's some I don't know what it is but there's some music industry So I found a job at this record. Label mistake sure. Yeah we'll just do anything and the next thing I knew it was like I was playing gigs and there was immediately like this sense of like. Oh wait so you work at record label. Oh so but I don't get it like which one which one are you are you? One of us are one of them. It was like being a cop at a party or something you know like are you the are you a label guy or are you. One of the band was that it was seen in a negative way it may have inadvertently negative. I don't think there was much like. Oh we don't care about this guy. He's in with the label or something at least not overtly but it was definitely there like under like in between the lines. Kind of you know like it was I think for some reason. A lot of people have a hard time imagining that one person could be both.

Instrumental interlude I dunno of somewhere over the rainbow, which is just a beautiful song that I love, and we had actually started before anybody even came out. We did like a Hebrew rendition of lucado d to all of me by John legend to really kind of like bridge the English in the Hebrew. We did not have like a lot of people walk.

For my wedding. I lost about forty eight pounds. I really wanted to hit fifty but didn't have for me. And I started working out the live method in October. I had just kind of seen on Instagram everybody that went there. Just. Looked amazing. But everyone was like so like enjoying the workouts. And like what they got in really great shape. And I was just like, you know, what I had lost about twenty or so pounds before I went to the live method. And I knew that I had to kind of accelerate. What I was doing. Maybe start working out. I knew if I kind of did it on my own try to go to a soul cycle class. I wouldn't go. I wanted to be held accountable. And that's why I kind of shared the entire journey with everybody, which is extremely not me like I would like post videos of me working on a tank top.

He put me on a macro plan, and I really focused on like diet, sleep water, exercise and real it's like a combination of like hit training and weight training, and like also a lot of cardio, but not cardio on a machine cardio like jumping jacks cardio like burpee and things that obviously hate, but I really saw my body transformed so quickly and I wanted to keep going like I chose to go to class every single weekend either Saturday or Sunday at ten or at eleven like I woke up I set an alarm every weekend to go to class because I've really enjoyed it. And I still enjoy it. I'm going back today at three thirty like the journey is not over for me. I'm just going to kind of change it up and do it a little bit differently. Just because I don't have as extreme of a goal as I did for my wedding. My next goal is Jackie's wedding. And then. From there. I'm just going to kind of set goals all year long.
