OkSessions Co-founder Christian Pearson on the ‘Inspiring Conversations’ Podcast

Jeff Krisman is a beautiful soul and it’s always a blast talking about art, life, and music with him. It was fun sitting down at Art Hall for our first conversation, recorded here. Jeff has written reviews of local shows and conducted numerous interviews with local artists. It’s inspiring to see how creative this guy is, and I’m thankful for the feature on (one of) his podcasts.

Nathan Poppe is the music writer of Oklahoma City, so when he wanted to do a piece on Saints Sessions I was honored. Nathan Poppe is now the editor for The Curbside Chronicle. Check out his site for more of his music writing!

Veronica was the first journalist to cover Saints Sessions. I was really blown away by her knowledge of jazz. Shoutout to Territory OKC for being regular visitors of our jazz events and for always upping the culture in OKC.
