The Naked Vibes Show
Jamey Perrenot – Guitarist, Producer, Songwriter – Music & Conversation – Ep021
Guitarist, songwriter, & producer, Jamey Perrenot, shares adventures of his christening into rock superstardom while touring Argentina with Guardian,
to his experience in the studio with a female WWE champion, to the spiritual works that have most deepened his faith.
He shares some sweet moments playing acoustic guitar live from his Nashville studio in this episode, along with some rockin' songs written for upcoming films. As you'll hear, we had too much fun, so I'll just have to invite Jamey back for another round.
3:23 - Jamey talks about how he makes his songwriting collaborators comfortable in the sometimes uncomfortable moments of getting started on a project. Great tip for applying to relationships in any area, both personal and business!
7:23 - Challenging communication requires us to become fully present in order to come to resolutions.
8:05 - Writing songs for movies adds a new level of collaborative effort. Jamey talks about the process of creating music for pictures.
9:57 - SONG: Excerpt from “Help Me” performed by Kat Perkins (from The Voice). Producers/Songwriters, Jamey Perrenot & Sean Gasaway.
11:16 - Stories about Jamey’s experiences playing guitar and touring with LeAnn Rimes.
13:20 - Bands and collaborative partnerships can be like a marriage, sharing intimate parts of ourselves with one another and allowing our vulnerability to open the door to creativity.
13:45 - Guys who know how to hang well with women. Why do some men know how to do it while others create sexual friction (and not in a good way)?
16:15 - Jamey’s experience working with WWE superstar, Mickie James. She’s a cool chick who wrestles and sings and…FYI…she can throw a grown man down!
18:14 - Jamey works with a lot of women as a producer in the studio and as a touring musician. The current climate of sexual harassment accusations that have been coming out regularly in the news affects men as well as women. He talks about the way it’s affected him. #MeToo
20:42 - Intentions make all the difference in the way we, as men and women, interact with one another. We have to use compassion and discretion in allowing people to be themselves, in addition to being strong enough to draw clear boundaries when necessary.
26:45 - Jamey hasn’t personally witnessed abuse. I wonder if it could be that the presence of an upstanding guy prevents other guys with ill intentions from acting on them.
29:33 - We need men to be men. The interplay of the masculine and feminine is creative energy and it’s very powerful. We all need the freedom to express ourselves, but in order for that to occur, we must create an environment of trust. Men who create an environment of genuine safety get to experience the best and most playful feminine energy because women know they are respected and loved.
32:17 - LIVE ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE - Jamey plays the intro to “Almost Home”, recorded by Guardian
