Here is Bela Fleck’s interview on Music Business Radio

Bela Fleck is known as the world’s best banjo player and has virtually reinvented both the image of the banjo as well as and the sound of the instrument.

Bela has won 11 Grammy Awards and has played on albums by Chick Corea, Phish, Bruce Hornsby, Shawn Colvin, Jerry Douglas, and Dave Matthews Band.

This episode talks about signing record deals, leaving record deals, signing other record deals, recording albums, writing songs, establishing yourself in different genres of music, and his new documentary film, Throw Down Your Heart.
