INTERVIEW: Team StarKid’s Dylan Saunders Talks Fan-Funded ‘Confluence’ Album - Billboard.com

I got to chat with the ever amazing Dylan about his ‘Confluence’ plans, how great Tomek is as a producer (I knew that already) and a little bit about the lessons he’s learned from Darren Criss in pursuit of a solo music career.  I may have some extended Dylan quotes that were cut from the article that I can share later.
