True Love Is…

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.

Since, we have completed a concept trailer, currently crunching numbers and flipping through calendar dates as we prepare for delivery to propose and secure investment.

But when I said that nothing had been done I erred in one important matter. We had definitely committed ourselves and were halfway out of our ruts. We had put down our passage money — booked a sailing to Bombay. This may sound too simple, but is great in consequence.

“Until one is committed, there is hesitance, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of inititative there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.”

 – W. H. Murray in the Scottish Himalaya Expedition

This is our first walk in the park so it has been a tight rope and perhaps it is a club that doesn’t always hear us at the stage door, but we are ‘knockin and it is time to start rockin’

 I never ever ever buy fashion magazines. They tend to be about seasonal fashion trends that convince you to buy things you don’t need that will go “out of fashion” by the next issue you purchase.

Where are you writing this right now? 

My home in LA

Home is where your story begins, can you tell us a bit about yours?

My home is a cozy place with an inspiring view. I moved back to LA from NY two years ago because I needed to be closer to nature. What I love about living in California is that I’m just 30 min away from the ocean or the mountains and feel like that refreshes me and keeps me connected to earth.

How did Music find you? 

My brothers always played music in the house I grew up in. I was their number one groupie and I learned what I know about making music from being in their company and the company of other musicians from a young age. I wanted to sing and play like they did and eventually I turned from an observer to a participant.5. Your latest EP release: ‘Spreading In The Light’ would you share a story behind one of the songs? I wrote the song ‘Man to Man’ while on a visit to Israel. I was getting ready to play a show in Tel Aviv when I heard a story on the news about some extreme religious people harassing other religious people for not being as devout as they were. I just thought at that moment that the world had gone mad and that people forgot the most basic human decency of being kind and tolerant towards one another. The song wrote itself after that.6. Fashion. An intricate part to the musician lifestyle.

Where do you find inspiration for your outfits on the road? 

I find inspiration from people on the street and from films of previous decades. I never ever ever buy fashion magazines. They tend to be about seasonal fashion trends that convince you to buy things you don’t need that will go “out of fashion” by the next issue you purchase. I dress up to my mood on that specific day and encourage women to figure out their own style through self expression.

Shout-out to your top three Bands/ Artists to watch out for?

I’m in love with ‘Sylvan Esso’ at the moment. Also ‘Ramona Lisa’ has been playing on repeat in my car. And ‘Henry Wolfe’ is amazing too. All of these people are true artists who are bringing something new to our listening pleasure.
