Unapologetically Me

Jaded 80s Baby podcast - Neosha

Episode Description

You know that feeling you get when you hear a new talent for the first time, and you feel like they have a ton of promise?

As they grow and get bigger, their success sort of feels like your success. You were checking for them before anybody knew who they were, so there’s an added sense of satisfaction as they grow.

You might get that feeling about my guest this week, Neosha. She’s an up-and-coming singer/songwriter who’s ready to make her mark on the industry.
