149 - Troy Kokol.png

Hello and welcome to the The Spark & The Art creativity podcast. Thank you for subscribing to our weekly podcast, where we alternate between interviews with creative folks from all different career levels and insight and inspiration episodes. All with the intention you’ll get what you need to get your creative projects started and, more importantly, finished.

I’m your host Tucker and this week is an interview with Troy Kokol. 

Troy is a songwriter but as you’ll learn he does more than just write songs. Recording demos and working as a producer for other artists and more. Works well with our episode about Streams of Income. 

Troy also talks about how he hasn’t always been into music and actually is a published syndicated cartoonist with King Syndicates who publish comics in national newspapers. 

We also talk about the success he had with a song around 2006 and how he handled it and what it did for his career. 

And now, our chat with, Troy Kokol. 

Did this episode make you think of anyone you know? Well like always you should totally send this episode to them. The easiest way to share is to send the short url TheSparkAndTheArt.com/149 and the hardest way is …. hmmm no hardest way came to me this week. Maybe I’ll have one next time.
