We all know the stories of how creative people get into the business of creating for a living, but how did they start using their imaginations in the first place? On the Beginnings podcast, writer and performer Andy Beckerman asks well-known and up-and-coming comedians, musicians, writers and artists about their earliest creative acts and about other formative childhood experiences.

On today's episode, I talk to musician Arone Dyer. Originally from Willmar, Minnesota, Arone began writing songs in high school and even won a contest to perform at the Minneapolis Lilith Fair when she was 18-years-old. But soon after, she developed carpal tunnel syndrome and had to give up playing guitar for many years. After moving to New York, where she took up work as a luthier and bicycle mechanic, Arone met Aron Sanchez, and the two eventually formed the group Buke and Gase, which is named after the instruments they created to play in the band. In the last 13 years, the two have released nine albums and EPs, as well as a documentary about performing live during the first summer of the pandemic. Most recently, Arone recorded a collaboration with the European classical-contemporary ensemble, s t a r g a z e, entitled, appropriately, Arone x s t a r g a z e, and it is out now via Transgressive Records!
