Episode 220 - BIG guest this week, in fact he's #47 in the world on Spotify as I type this! Ari Leff aka LAUV joins the show! Before reaching the top of the pop charts with songs like "I Like Me Better" (which is about to hit 1 Billion on Spotify) and "i'm so tired...", Ari cut his teeth in the Myspace scene, with influences ranging from Post-hardcore and screamo like Underoath and The Devil Wears Prada to mellower stuff like Owl City and pop-punk like The Starting Line. We talk about his start as a "behind the scenes" guy, touring with Ed Sheeran, his "fearless" approach to writing lyrics and also where to get a margarita the size of your head in North Hollywood.
