Below you can find the full video podcast episode from our YouTube channel. To listen on all other platforms, click here.

On this episode I’m joined by Wana White, lead singer of the Cyber Pop Rock duo ‘Ardenite’. The Austrian band from Vienna have been making strides recently, releasing regular singles & music videos whilst building a tight knit community on social media. It was there, on Instagram, that Wana and I got talking – it was clear we had a lot in common and I became very curious about the band’s story and all that they have going on. Naturally, I had to get Wana on the podcast to talk about it – and I’m so glad that I did! We chatted about lots of things and there are certainly some important lessons and takeaways here for anyone looking to follow a similar path. I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation and hope that you enjoy listening to it!
