Interviews

Sound Matters: Music & Entertainment Talk with Tom Leu features interviews with movers & shakers in the music and entertainment businesess. Interviews are a central component of the show, and of Tom’s broader work as both a writer and a professional speaker, trainer, and coach.

As the former host of the Ground Level TV show, writer and speaker, Tom Leu, has interviewed hundreds of people from multiple business, artistic, academic, and entertainment fields.

Tom’s passion is to interview the many “rock stars” among us and find out what makes them tick; what drives them toward their definition of “success.” The mission is to uncover and discover their key principles of success psychology, and philosophies of achievement both personally and professionally, and then share it with the Sound Matters Radio audience. This isn’t celebrity gossip (many who Tom interviews aren’t “celebrities”… yet), as much as it’s the sharing of success insights by those who are driven to achieve and contribute to the world through their art and their work.

Tom shares these insights with the simple purpose to inspire, to be inspired, and to learn from each other… taking what you like and leaving the rest, while putting it all into practice in the real-world where applicable.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a musician, model, or mechanic… the intent is to highlight how movers & shakers kick-ass in the real-world, literally and figuratively. It’s less about money, and more about the motivation, inspiration, and perseverance necessary to be the best at what you do the best.

Sound Matters interviews focus on philosophies of success, perseverance, risk-taking, failure, fear, uncertainty, recovery, change, communication, and personal achievement among other topics. It’s less about what you do and more about who you are. It’s for the 5%.

Sound Matters interview questions encourage critical thinking and contemplation. Deliberately deeper, philosophical discussions are the goal. Questions and conversations that attempt to get at the core of each person’s truth, without a guarded, watered-down version being presented. Tom asks compelling questions; relevant questions; provocative questions; and fun questions. Without this type of diversity… it’s just another interview, so what’s the point right? The end-game is value, and possibly some amount of revelation for the participants, the audience, and the interviewer.

“Being an on-air guest with Tom Leu felt like an episode of ‘Inside the Actor’s Studio.’ Great questions; great conversation. I came away from the interview feeling very fulfilled.” ~ Michael Corin, formerly of Anavox
