Press Release

Jim Adkins (Jimmy Eat World) has announced details of a podcast series, entitled Pass-Through Frequencies (brought to you by Fender Guitars).

The podcast will see Jim unpacking the craft of songwriting and creative process over an in-depth interview with fellow musicians every week. The series  begins on August 6th with Jim’s first guest, Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus. Future episodes are set to include: Steve Aoki, Nate Reuss, Chris Carrabba, Ben Gibbard, Tegan Quinn and David Bazan, with more to be announced.

Speaking about the idea behind the podcast, Jim says:

“When I’m working on a song, it almost feels like I am channeling something. It’s like I am holding the rudder with only a vague clue who might be paddling. I have to find a balanced mindset of being wholly present...and not “there” at all.

The creative process has as much reward and mystery as it did 26 years ago when I started writing songs with Jimmy Eat World. I am still totally fascinated. In this series I chat with music people about their process, preparation and execution. As well as whatever may get thrown in on the side.”
