Many people ask me why I moved all the way to Sweden from Los Angeles. Why didn’t you stay? Why did you move from the musical capital of the world to be in tiny Tingsryd? Isn’t it better it LA? The answer to all these questions is because of opportunity and education. Staying in one place doesn't make you grow as a person, you become familiar and comfortable with your surroundings. The music industry is one of the hardest industries to tap into. If I cannot handle change and hardships then there is no way I’m ready for the music world. There is always going to be change, competition, hardships and so many ups and downs throughout life and the only way to grow as a person and learn is to face those changes, stand up to the hardships.
When I first heard about my school I lived in Denver Colorado and I could’ve stayed there comfortably but I had the opportunity to move to LA and experience a new school, new changes a different culture. For the past three years, I’ve moved three times and I’ve learned more about myself if those three years than I did 15 years of my life. Without taking risks there is no way to see the world and what it has to offer.
GO! Move half way across the world, take the next bus, train or go on a hike. Take risks it's okay. Explore your surroundings and learn to get up and enjoy life.
