Charles Burchell: Diplomacy, the Illusion of Perfection, and Paying it Forward
Today’s guest is multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer, and educator Charles Burchell. As a producer and musician Charles has worked with artists such as Talib Kweli, Christian Scott, and Braxton Cook as well as his own project The Love Experiment.
