"[It] was really upsetting [because] when I asked a lot of questions, I ended up being treated like a complete idiot the entire time I was in these classes [at Berklee]. And I think it was one hundred percent because of my gender."
- Ellen Tiberio-Shultz
From her upbringing in State College to her time at Berklee to her arrival in Philadelphia, Ellen Tiberio-Shultz has been building an impressive body of music. Dan and Ellen talk about playing house shows as a teen, the trappings of "authenticity", her complicated feelings about her music education (being one of the only women studying guitar amidst a "sea of dudes"), and the amazing people she's met along the way who have helped her become the musician she is now.
