Made to Move Us: An Interview with Stu Larsen

image of stu larsen
Stu Larsen is a talented musician, known for songs like San Francisco and Thirteen Sad Farewells. He’s also no stranger to sharing the stage with other amazing artists, like Ed Sheeran, The Once and Passenger (you may have seen that little YouTube hit Passenger – Let Her Go that’s been watched more than 2.5 billion times). I approached Stu Larsen 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 have him on the podcast to find out what makes him, him. I sat in silence after we recorded this episode and reflected on what I had learned about his life as an artist and world traveler. 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 listen to every album by Stu Larsen and every word of this conversation. There is beauty and honesty in what he has to say and his perspective on life just may change your own.

Welcome to Made for That

made for that logo

 

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.
