We talk about WWOOFING at Fifth Wind Farm, picking up guitar and developing songwriting and recording skills during his travels, and all the unreal experiences that have got him where he is.
I’m also proud to announce that we’ll be playing a recording of one of Adilson’s original songs for the very first time!
Don’t miss it, this guy has quite the story.
