Some artists utilise their platforms to speak about the world in clinical, almost detached ways. While others speak about the world with a level of sincerity that practically oozes from their pores. Esmé Patterson is much more of the latter. Along with being a talented musician, she’s also an open-book when it comes to her feelings on unity, human rights, and the complexities of life itself.

For the latest edition of the 405 Exchange podcast, Ken Grand-Pierre spoke to Esmé about the meaning of life being everything and nothing, the controversy behind the We Were Wild cover, touring, and making art in our world of dire consequences. Check out their conversation below.

“I don't like to tell people what something means, because when you frame things in meaning…it’s not a full picture.”
