Ryan Lerman: Scary Pockets, John Legend, Michael Buble, Self-Confidence, and More

Ryan Lerman has toured the world as a bassist for Ben Folds, guitarist for Michael Buble, and guitarist/string arranger/musical director for John Legend. He’s also toured with Vanessa Carlton, Joshua Radin, Tallest Man On Earth, and more as guitarist, bassist, singer, music director and arranger. As a songwriter, his compositions have been recorded by Vulfpeck, Buble, and others. He’s also one half of the creative team behind YouTube sensations Scary Pockets, with over 230 million views!  He has released three solo records under his own name with Pinstripes, The Sky (2012), Friends (2017), and Noisy Feelings (2019). We talk about all that and also the struggle that all or most artists go through in terms of feeling and retaining a comfortable sense of well-being and self-confidence. It’s a great conversation!
