Saxophonist extraordinaire Abby Gross joins Petticoat Rule to share with us the 'glamour' of road life with soul-rock band The Commonheart as well as her passion for music education, and gives insight into what its like to write a song about something meaningful without using any lyrics. We also touch on the challenges of work-life balance as a professional musician on tour, and her long-term origins as a jazz player, embedded all the way back in the influences of her great-grandmother.
