Hey Guys,

In today’s episode I talk to trailer music and video game composer Sigurd Jøhnk-Jensen.

A few months ago he reached out to me on Instagram to tell me about his journey.  I was so inspired by Sigurd’s story that I had to get him on the show. 

Sigurd is a composer and live musician. Having toured Europe multiple times most recently with Blindstone and Walter Trout. Music composition credits mainly in video games and trailers include; Killing Floor, Marvels Eternals House Of Gucci, Scream and many more.

This episode was such a joy to record. Sigurd has a very wise head on his shoulders and delivers some absolute gems when it comes to your mental health and balancing your work with your life.

I came away from this interview wanting to be more kind to myself and I think you will too.
