Episode 73 - No Labels, No Limits podcast - Musicians with Passion
Welcome to the No Labels No Limits podcast. This is Sarah Boxx, your host, and I'm thrilled to be here once again to share with you some great interviews this week. We're going to do another compilation, only this time focused on musicians with passion and their personal stories.Josiah, Vanessa and Corey all have a common element of passion for music and the adventures they share that got them where they are today, despite fear factors and taking chances. They all give us unique advice on how to live up to our dreams. Listen in and let their success stories become contagious.
Josiah Bruny, a Southern Californian, has a lifelong dream of sharing music and art (and the business side) with underprivileged and at-risk children through his non-profit, Music Changing Lives. When asked about his success, he says, "There's thousands of people that have molded me into who I am today and I have to give them all the credit. That's why I'm so appreciative! Speak your dreams, believe them, go after them.”
Learn about MCL and Josiah:
Sharing her love of music and the blues, Vanessa Collier doesn't let much hold her back. She is known as a master musician and multi-talented blues performer. She plays all the saxophones, the flute, clarinet, funk piano, guitar, and she's been dabbling with bass and drums. Listen in as we analyze her progression from childhood to her current 27 year old self.
"Being an introvert, I feel that I don't always communicate it as clearly as I can, so, one of the things that keeps me thinking is how can I be more clear? How can I communicate better? And, how can I connect with people better? Music has always been a great way for me to do that because it hasn't required words, I can play how I feel."
Today's guest, Cory M. Coons, is a perfect example of a person with a passion for music, family and performance. He is an award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter from Ottawa, Ontario. Listen in to follow his story from his first job at a golf course, to the tragic loss of his parents and his ability to embrace music that has changed him throughout the years.
"I think you need to surround yourself with the right people to achieve a balance. I think there's always going to be the fear factor in anything that you do. Know when to take the right chances in life. Set small goals to climb the ladder if you're looking for the big goal in the end, because I think everything leads to something else. I'm a believer in synchronicity, everything happens for a reason."
