Music feature: Hrishikesh Hirway

From Afternoons, 2:30 pm on 23 January 2024

When you've interviewed the likes of Madonna, Iggy Pop, U2, Cat Stevens over 200 artists on exactly how one of their songs was created have gone deeper with the artist into a song than almost anyone else, what songs are on top?

10 years ago, musician, composer and podcast host Hrishikesh Hirway started a podcast called Song Exploder to get over his own writers block.

It's now an internationally award winning podcast, and a Netflix original television series, where musicians break down the creative process behind their songs.

He released his own EP, Rooms I Used to Call My Own in 2022.

Hrishikesh joins us for our first Music Feature of the year, with a list of songs to share.
