Meet the outrageously talented multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Cherimondis J. She's a classically trained concert pianist among many other things. We dig into her music background, her songwriting process, what it's like being a Black musician in the classical world, and the album she put out last year, Dove Archer. You'll find that Cherimondis thinks very deeply about both music and life, and she has quite a lot of introspective things to say about how her art relates to her life. Why does she write the music before the lyrics? What kind of creative arc is her songwriting career following? Why did she agree to come play on my recently released EP? These answers and more await you in this conversation.
