INTRODUCTION 

Bwejua Fachano returns for Part 2 of his two-part interview. In this episode, Bwejua joins us as we do a retrospective of his last three songs; ‘Fade’, ‘Father Father', and ‘Waylon Smithers’. These songs touch on heavy themes including life, death, and depression. In those defining moments, Bwejua could have sunk under the weight of expectation. That’s not who Bwejua is, however, and it’s why he’s found renewed hope for tomorrow.
