A Smashing Pumpkins podcast hosted by Frank Garcia-Hejl and Patrick O'Brien. Wanna go for a ride?



The incredible, multi-talented musician SIERRA SWAN joins us on the Pumpkast to talk about her work on the upcoming SP album, CYR, her musical family tree, her diverse resume of past collaborations (including touring with Gary Numan and Ringo Starr), and the story of how her years-long friendship with Billy began via Courtney Love at Linda Perry's studio. She also offers sage advice for anyone facing rejection in their field of work, and we even have time for a three-way Prince love-fest (though not the kind that probably went on at Paisley Park)! Sierra rules and we were so honored to have this great conversation with her. Enjoy! (Recorded in October 2020)
