The Sleeping At Last Podcast

United States

Welcome to The Sleeping At Last Podcast! My name's Ryan O'Neal and I make music under the name "Sleeping At Last." Nice to meet you! This podcast is an evolution of my ongoing series of "How It Was Made" blog posts, in which I dissect and explain how my songs take shape, one song at a time. In this podcast, I'll be talking about my creative process, the intention and thought behind my songs - what they mean to me and why I did what I did. I'll also debut some new songs on here! That's the plan, but I'm brand new to this whole Podcast planet, so who knows! In any case, if you're curious about how my music gets made, I'd be so honored for you to take a listen. Love, Ryan

Welcome to the Sleeping At Last Podcast! This debut episode is all about the making of the Sleeping At Last song, "August 21, 2017: Total Solar Eclipse" - the first track in a new series of songs inspired by astronomical events called, "Astronomy."
