On Fresh is the Word, we like to deliver wisdom through great stories from the minds of bright creatives of pop culture. Through those stories, we like to dissect the journey of our guests and present actionable lessons and advice for our listeners no matter what career or avenue of artistry they pursue.
The guests for this episode are April Washko & Lyindaa Russell from the TV series Chair Gang, with new episodes each week on Facebook Watch. Created by Washko and filmed in Michigan, Chair Gang is described as “stepping into the personal and professional lives of the stylists at Ebberts Salon and Spa, you get a first hand look at the good, the bad, and the ugly.”
Along with creating Chair Gang, April Washko wears many hats in the production of the show as the HBIC, along with her role as the fiery “Alyssa” whose got a bit of a short fuse that speaks her mind. Lyindaa Russell plays the sly, stylish, and manipulating “Bree”.
During our chat we talked about how Chair Gang came to be, creating opportunities for other people, their creative beginnings, trying to stand out, learning from your experiences, collaboration vs competition, creative responsibilities on set, and much more!
