EP97 - Musician - Full Commitment Means Never Failing, David Sprague of Psychopath Etiquette


You know a great band name when you see one, David Sprague of Psychopath Etiquette doesn’t have much of a story to tell about coming up with the name, but he does have some other ideas to share.


Michael asks him about his thoughts on professionalizing his family band, how the creative process works between himself and his brother and what he finds fulfilling about music.


David opens up about how his relationships have led to songs, how he fell in love with the idea of something and being hurt by the reality of it. He talks about vulnerability and honesty in art.


Beyond that, the two discuss Bob Dylan getting booed, creative pivots as business decisions, the fight against non-sense lyrics, setting goals, independence, and some ideas on podcasting.
