#004 Vulnerability & Trust with Tina Schlieske

Music Lessons

Jun 21 2023 • 59 mins

Tina Schlieske has been paving her own way in music for nearly three decades. She has fronted diverse bands, from the wildly popular Minneapolis-based Americana-Rock band, Tina and the B-Sides to groups that range from rock, to classic R&B to punk. Tina has shared the stage with St. Vincent, Patty Griffin, Robert Ellis,Jeff Bridges, Doors Guitarist Robbie Krieger, Etta James and Double Trouble just to name a few. Tina has been called a "smart, sensitive, earthy singer-songwriter with a superb voice" and is one of my favorite live music performers - no matter what genre she's exploring or what type of venue she's in.

In this conversation Tina and I discuss her early learnings about vulnerability, where her confidence comes from, and how she thinks about building trust when performing live - and so much more! You can find out more about Tina at and you can find more Music Lessons Podcast episodes here.
