Derek Webb has a lot on his mind, and he’s not afraid to say it. He’s continually looking for creative and innovative ways to do so; the more outside the box, the better. He is also quite savvy as an entrepreneur and a businessman. Naturally, this is the kind of person I AM TUNED UP prefers to focus on. Currently, he is on tour in support of his concept record Ctrl. I (Ryan) has the opportunity to chat with him prior to his set on the Columbus, Ohio date of his Ctrl Tour (on which he is backed by friends and musical partners Page CXVI). We discussed the new record, Noisetrade.com, Spotify, and his wishes for the evolving roles of music enthusiasts. You can stream the interview below. Once you’re done, check out his website for updates on all things Derek Webb and read the back story to Ctrl on his tumblr.
