“The way I parent is based very much on remembering how things made me feel as a kid.” -Quillan
This episode features Kim & Quillan Roe of the Roe Family Singers.
Quillan shares how he went from wanting to be George Lucas to being a band leader. While Kim shares her early and ongoing desire to become the singer Prince. In a clear effort to demonstrate how there’s no separation between family and work life for the Roes One and a half year old Onnee keeps a playing, singing, and dancing show running throughout the conversation.
Quillan talks about his dad’s eclectic taste set him up well for the kind of old-time but with punk influences music the band makes now. He also shares how releasing his youthful anger in rock and punk bands made him not need to make angry music anymore.
We hear about how Kim had never performed anything in front of an audience until they formed the Roe Family singers. Plus, Kim talks about playing shows while wearing an infant.
