As anyone who made it out to the 2017 M.O.M. Cup Saturday night show could tell you, Twelve High Chicks believes in unique entertainment. Notably, the cup was in one place and not a variety of locations. So instead of a cannabis celebrity headlining a dope-friendly dance party, Saturday featured a showcase of Vancouver — and notable Australian — talent. And what talent!
This month, Twelve High Chicks invites you to read one of our more humble interviews, with Vancouver-based musician David Morin. David is a talented musician known for busking the streets of Vancouver and grabbing the attention of random strangers as his audience. While interviewing David Morin we talk about what his influences are, and what drives his passion to be both a street performer and a recording artist. I hope you enjoy this piece on this amazing up-and-coming Canadian musician.
We are born to be something of substance. We are born to discover the fires that dwell inside our hearts, and that shake our souls. While the webs of life trap us in the beats of time, our hearts yearn to soar. And we are likely to find our own substance when we learn to channel the energies that are bestowed upon us. Whether our substance finds us or we create it, that fire that dwells needs to burn in order to channel the path of where we need to journey.
Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start when writing about some places. They become so rich with smells, sounds and colours, all remembered more intensely than they may have actually been. Were the people quite so loving and caring? Did we really all come together and become family for five days? I’ve made the trip back from Vancouver a few times now, North Country Fair is that kind of reality for me.
In the heart of music and lyrics lurk certain truths that provoke an appetite for dialogue about those truths.
They often reflect to us our personal experiences, be they sad country songs played at a loved one’s funeral or songs played in the background the first time making love. Music is inspiring because music stems from inspiration.
Some artists become inspired by things that perhaps aren’t personal as much as they are social or political, but still stir expression from the heart.
This is the inspiration of Addey Lane, a Californian musician who welcomes you into her world and her truths, while shedding light on current cannabis-prohibition struggles in the United States of America.
Addey Lane is a new, brash, Californian vocalist bringing a message to cannabis prohibitionists, corporations, and political elites around the globe with her debut song, ‘All for One‘. The hit, pro-cannabis–legalization song, first released in February of 2014, has soared throughout the internet, fired up social media websites, and continues to receive positive recognition on a daily basis on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
