Here's more from our conversation with producer, manager, musician and more Aaron "Lazerbeak" Mader for the profile story related to his new, meditative solo album.

Lizzo: “I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to work with her again, but her trajectory was always about trying to be as big as Beyoncé. To do that, she was going to have to go off and work with big pop producers. She’s doing that now, and she’s killing it.”

Dessa: “Like Lizzo, it always seemed to be in the cards she’d get to where she is now. I had more of a record-label role in her career up until [last year’s album] ‘Chime,’ and I think things really clicked, and now I’m happy to help facilitate all the other things she’s doing in any way I can. This orchestra album, I think, is going to be a great learning experience and huge endeavor for all of us.”

Doomtree: “We were firing on all cylinders as a group for a while there, and had a good run, but it’s a bit of a struggle to keep it going now. Everyone’s doing their own thing more and more. But I think it’s getting to be time for everyone to check in again, and figure out a new route and new way of doing things together.”
