Shaun O'Dell moves from sight to sound with Sword and Sandals and WR/DS
Not that Sword and Sandals wasn't touched or touched by the art realm as well. "For me, it became a good outlet for trusting in the unknown, as far as it was related to my art practice," explains O'Dell. "I was overdoing it for years and years, and I've gotten to the point where I'm interested in the places I don't know about so much.
"It's a different thing playing music," he continues, "but your brain is doing the same thing — just letting go and not judging yourself and playing and not judging other people you're playing with and finding space to make music."
