"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.“

Carpe Diem. Seize the day. These are words we’ve likely heard before, some of us though stand up out of our chair when we hear them.
Like a call to action. A battle cry. A startling reminder. To live intentionally, to dig deep, to reach out and connect, express with honesty, and travel the world with curiosity. To play our music from the heart and give everything to those around us as we perform.
And then, like a flash in the pan, this life comes to an end.
We’re musicians by nature. Are we using this precious time and our long practiced talents like we ought to?
I’ve busked across Canada from Vancouver to Montreal.. and in Europe from Ireland to Serbia.. and the most incredible thing I discovered is that when you give your music from the heart - every door opens and total strangers welcome you into their lives with open arms. It’s an incredible experience that continues to change my life and blow wide open my concept of what’s possible in life!
Carpe Diem. This is my urgent philosophy in life. Are you on the same page? I’m a singer songwriter who plays acoustic guitar, with all original songs (and a few covers for fun) and I’m looking for you.
Are you a guitarist who loves playing indie folk? Acoustic or electric is fine. Or do you play another instrument?
Instrument and talent level matters less than spirit and sincerity in wanting to live a musical life for the present moment, and to wanting to perform, give and connect.
Our first gig ($ paid) is a one hour set on October 19th. If we’re a good team and have fun I’d love to hire you for all upcoming gigs you’re available for. You will always be paid for all gigs. I’m grateful for your effort and energy, and you should expect to be paid as such.
If you and I see the world in a similar way, I’d like to hear from you. Consider telling me about yourself and your philosophy - or maybe just the musical influences that have shaped your world.
Looking to hire the right person asap. Thanks for reading.
