Conrad Rudolph looks like he has it all! A great Video editing career, he's the lead singer in a great local band and it seems like his life is on an upwards trajectory, what we don't know is the battles he faces every single day! 

In one of the most beautiful, emotional and honest interviews I have ever had, we sat down to talk about how he deals with chronic back pain daily, saying "I have it as I sit here now".

he candidly talks about the music indusrtry and his journey back from the darkest places he's ever been with such grace and humility that I couldn'y help but want to give him the biggest hug!
