Ep 30 Artistry + Creativity Part 2: Rick Rubin’s Wisdom

March 10, 2023

I want to talk today about the number one most downloaded episode of Dear Constance. It’s called On Artistry and Creativity. In that episode, I’m talking about how people always used always say to me that they found me so creative, which never landed with me. I never considered myself a creative person, and I realized later that I was confusing artistry with creativity.

I’ve just started reading a book called ‘The Creative Act, A Way of Being’ by a very famous man by the name of Rick Rubin. I kind of want to say, if you haven’t heard about this, you’re living under a rock, but I don’t want to shame anybody. It’s everywhere. It’s on the New York Times Bestseller list. Everybody’s talking about it. 60 Minutes did an episode about him. He’s been on podcasts everywhere. He is an American executive and record producer. A co-founder of Def Jam Recordings, the co-president of Rec of Columbia Records. He helped popularize hip hop. He’s worked with everybody from Johnny Cash to Adele, in all genres of music. He doesn’t only work with musicians. He has this way of listening to music and being with an artist when he’s in the zone and picks up on things that maybe other people can’t hear. I’d say he’s a co-creator of sorts. Anyway, you get the idea. He’s hugely famous and he’s like a cult figure in the music industry.
