The Artist Connection Podcast has been offering long form audio interviews with artists from the past, present, and future since 2011. Hear what inspires them to get out of bed each morning and practice the craft that they love. My guests include people that I truly respect from many different backgrounds. Each episode provides a unique mix of music and conversation. Enjoy!

The Artist Connection Podcast is back and bigger than ever! Today’s guest is musician Jim McCarty. He is best known as the drummer for The Yardbirds, but there is so much more to the story. We talked about his early double life as a London Stockbroker by day and drumming Mod by night, and his family’s reaction to his career in the music business. He shared stories about his life post-Yardbirds, and how it all came back around for him. Jim also has amazing solo albums available. I sprinkled in songs throughout the episode that fit in nicely with the conversation and really set the mood for the topics that we covered. I don’t throw around the word “legend” a lot, but Jim has certainly earned this distinction. It was an honor to speak with him. His music spans the decades, and his influence can be felt in many ways. Musicians like Jim set the tone early on, and many of us are still trying to catch up. Learn more about him at and If you reach out, please let Jim know that you heard him on my show. I hope that you enjoy this episode as much as I did!
