This week on Yes But Why Podcast, I interview artist and podcast producer, Traveus Lawson.

Traveus Lawson is the Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Always Press Record, Inc. ( He is the lead producer on more than 30 serial podcasts, with thousands of hours of content within the APRTV vault that is broadcasted globally via 24/7 live streams and On-Demand SmartTV apps.

Originally from the small town of Monessen, PA, Traveus Lawson moved to Los Angeles with his mom shortly after his father passed away. That was when he first saw a movie being made. The magic of that moment birthed a poet, playwright, painter, novelist, musician, filmmaker and now the producer known as "Tray the Producer."

In our conversation, Traveus and I go deep into the topic of what is art and who can make it. We talk about finding and connecting with your audience. We muse on creating in a chaotic world that seems like it doesn’t care about artists.

Traveus tells me about the evolution of his production company, Always Press Record. We discuss what it takes to produce the breadth of podcasts that APR handles.

We chat about the artists that inspire us – from long dead painters to present day musicians like Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Mdou Moctar, and Dave Matthews Band.

Support Traveus Lawson by downloading the Always Press Record app and watching the livestreams of all the amazing content he is putting out!
