It’s no secret that your location can hugely impact your mood, mental state and creative inspiration. However, the timing of when you change your environment is often overlooked in this. Singer and songwriter Eric Terino will tell you all about it. He moved from a quiet New England area to New York City and then back to the New England woods. This all had it’s effect on his music.
On top of that, the timing of the Pandemic couldn’t have been worse for Eric. He deals with Agoraphobia, roughly put a fear of going outside. Just as it was getting easier for him to live with this phobia, we were all forced back into out homes. This put a major halt on Eric’s progress. Thus he turned back to art. The one constant companion though all of life’s changes.
What’s more this episode: How to recreate the typical Van Gogh paint style, dealing with loss, and how different vocal takes can make a huge impact on your art. No matter how arbitrarily different they might be.
