I am a bit of a fanatic when it comes to music.
I spend a lot of time with it. Between sourcing new music for work, scripting music to create ‘wow’ moments, and just using it as a general soundtrack to my day, I bring music into my life in all kinds of ways.
I believe one of the best ways to bring music into my world is by taking in live shows. Nothing quite compares to the energy that is created when people gather around live musicians, which is why I am ecstatic to be headed to my home-away-from-home, New York City, this weekend to kick off the first of my summer music festivals at the Governors Ball. In honour of this fun filled weekend I have made a 2015 Summer Festival Mixtape that includes some of the bands I am most excited to see this summer.
