Made to Move Us: Stu Larsen #006

I approached Stu about doing this interview after one of his shows in Toronto. It was the 2nd time I’d seen him perform and I was so blown away by the experience that I knew I needed to find out what makes him, him.

After we recorded this episode I sat in silence for a long time, reflecting on everything we talked about and his life and story as a musician and world traveller. He truly is the sort of person that makes you stop and take a deep breath. His love of creating music and capturing the world around him is so pure, as is the joy he gets out of simply being alive.

I urge you to not only listen to every album he’s made (if you haven’t already), but to every word of this conversation. There is so much beauty and honesty in what he has to say and his perspective and outlook on life just may change your own.

Welcome to Made for That #001

What was that thing you dreamt of doing as a kid? That you still dream about now? That feels like it’s just a part of you? You know what I mean. The guitar strings that are simply an extension of your fingers. The code that gets written or the bug that gets fixed before you’ll eat, sleep, or even check the time. The voice that stops someone dead in their tracks, the 100 meters you refuse to let anyone run faster than you or the followers that would be lost without you to lead them.

I want to introduce you to the people that have found their purpose, their calling. Or a fight inside of them they didn’t know was there. I want you to hear about their achievements and their mistakes. The inevitable failures on the path to greatness, how it feels to fall hard and what it means to stand back up… what it means to try again tomorrow.

There is no story I love more than the relentless pursuit of a dream; than the story of someone who looked at something and said, “I was born for this.”

This is made for that.
