Doing The Work With Matthan Black

Informações:

Synopsis

Doing the Work is all about giving an inside look into the minds of musicians and artists. We give you access to the hard, unglamorous, behind the scene things that go into making art. Not the sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but the early mornings, warm-up laps, and rough drafts. If you've ever tried to be good at something then this is for you.
