today I have the singer/songwriter Annemarie Quinn with me today. She's from the UK but has been living in Malawi, Africa for the last 5 years where she recorded her album "Blue Sky Thinking". With over 40 collaborations with different musicians, Annemarie made it her mission to involve and include as many locals as possible. Annemarie talked about how important collaboration is and that is actually is a sign of strength. She also mentioned how everything is hard work, that nothing just falls into your lap, "You get out what you put in". The hardest thing about recording an album is capturing the energy of the musicians and the song.
