Crowdfunding a Creative Bender with Tim Cheesebrow


As a dad of two young kids, songwriter Tim Cheesebrow has limited hours in the day for music. But he recently wrote an album’s worth of material in a self-imposed solitary confinement at a cabin in northern Minnesota. He’s now in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign to produce this new album, Home in the Heartland. We talk about his three main sources of inspiration: his family, the concept of home, and a Carl Sagan-inspired philosophy of universal connectedness. Oh, and we also talk about extraterrestrial music.
