The Compass, a podcast dedicated to the various struggles of actors, writers, directors, designers, dancers, musicians, composers, and playwrights, welcomes jazz pianist, and activist Samora Pinderhughes October 14.
Created by actress Leah Walsh, the podcast documents the lives of artists navigating the waters between art and commerce. Each week, Playbill.com will highlight Walsh’s latest episode with industry professionals who share their own stories about making art, making a living, and maintaining inspiration.
This week, Pinderhughes discusses his experiences with the “dark side,” music as social action, collaboration, self releasing an album, and finding balance in a uncertain field.
