Sipping on ideas within this delicious Tokyo Rose tea at Buro coffeeshop in the Gastown district of Vancouver, Canada.

This is a story about women involved with successful musicians.
From the outside looking in, we can only imagine how difficult it might be to hold on to any sense of your own identity, while walking beside some of the most relevant artists of our time.
We examine who these women are in their own right – why they are remarkable and what they would tell other women who dream to walk in their shoes.
Tackling the realities of these relationships and how they make it work together – while doing their own thing.
Today is the time of the woman – we want to celebrate autonomy, freedom and self determination as seen through the eyes of these ‘women strong.’

We met Bumi Thomas purely by fate.
Lost in the dark of the night on a recent trip to London we searched for the flat of our next interview.
Bumi was the only person in sight when we asked her where the address was and she coyly replied , “I think I know who you are looking for (with a smile we would soon recognize) follow me…” it turned out Bumi was the assistant to the subject we were searching for.
Bumi, your music is a gift to the world and it likely was exactly at the stroke of midnight you surprised us with your voice one night.
Fresh Independence caught up with Brett Dennen after a day of skiing in Aspen, Colorado. Currently on Tour: You don’t want to miss this diamond in the rough.
Where did Tour kick off?
We kicked off tour in Phoenix, AZ and stop in Honolulu, HI. I wish I could tour Hawaii all the time. I don’t, but I need to.
You were in Vancouver last February right?
I was , I love Vancouver, I was there last summer as well.
The number one thing people say to me when they meet me is, “I didn’t realize you were so tall!” I heard that at least 50 times a day last month on tour. Here I am backstage last night in Madrid, warming up before the show. In Holland, I fit in just fine.
What is your favorite thing about Vancouver?
I just love the scenery, the air, the red wood trees, the breeze, it has that water-ocean-air energy to it that is invigorating and it is just so blue and green. Those are the colors of life- very inspiring.
