Sipping on ideas within this delicious Tokyo Rose tea at Buro coffeeshop in the Gastown district of Vancouver, Canada.
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.
A favourite question in our interviews with answers cut straight from the heart.
Adam Cohen- A state, a place, a noun a verb, the most beautiful word that you ever heard- A line from Hallelujah, Jesus and Buddha, love is a faded sign that you don’t see sometimes.
Hozier- Something tangible & real – to love someone as a human being
MAY- I believe that true love is honest, unwavering and immortal.
Marcus Foster- True Love is… Hard to find.
Caitlin Crosby- SERVICE. Selfless. Sacrifice
Brandon Malone- Loving someone right where their at, while inspiring one another to be more.
Ben Rothbard- Empowering the one you love.
Rayland Baxter- – True Love is… true Love is… a couple walking around their neighborhood after dinner hoLding hands and wanting nothing but each other… true Love is a huge fight… true Love is what the worLd and all her inhabitants are born with… its a feeLing that i cant expLain… its the most speciaL type of excitement.
Nicholas & the Pessimistics- When you would rather have a bad day with someone over a good day without them.
JP Maurice- For Lovers
Yamir- Understanding, trust, valuing one another, and passion.
Mick Evans- Anything you can’t give up.
Andrew Maxwell Morris- Knowing that you are safe and with someone who completes you in every way. Like a blanket but a very comfy one!
Dave Cheetham- Something everyone one deserves and no one should have to settle for less.
Devin Cuddy- Hard to find, but out there, its a journey not a destination.
Zane Carney- A choice that has become fearlessly unconditional.
Matt Costa- A bottle of Brandy and a good guitar.
Lenka- It’s everywhere. Just let it in.
Francesca Tamellini- Painful
David Newberry- Irresistable
Blue Sky Miners- A myth. Love is all around.
Poor Remy- “True love” now that we’re reading it seems kind of redundant. When you find truth, you find love. I think thats true with anything. Thats why love is so powerful, cause its true.
Augustines- There are many kinds of love. A mother’s, a friends’, a lover, a wife’s, a brother’s. True love? Probably being connected with the life you are living, the actual life. Not the life that is purchased or justified from the outside.
Griffin House- I honestly do not know. That’s not a sexy answer, I know. But it’s honest. I should go look up “love” in the dictionary. That in and of it’s self would be an act of love, to me. Trying to find a proper definition is a great place to begin. I do know this. I think I have had a bit of an incorrect definition of true love for most of my life. I think we look to other people to fill a big void in ourselves and we think that if we meet “the one” that we’ll feel happy forever and life will be wonderful. But I don’t think that’s love, I think that is using another person to make yourself feel good. The closest thing I could maybe venture to say is that true love is unconditional.
