Charles Burchell: Diplomacy, the Illusion of Perfection, and Paying it Forward

Today’s guest is multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer, and educator Charles Burchell.  As a producer and musician Charles has worked with artists such as Talib Kweli, Christian Scott, and Braxton Cook as well as his own project The Love Experiment.  On the educational side, he has taken his experience as a graduate of both New England Conservatory and Harvard and worked to design various programs for both online and traditional institutions.  In addition to all of that he also has a label with Splice Sounds and works as a musical diplomat traveling to different countries representing the United States.
