ALONE I WALK – 116 DAYS OF SUMMER – CITY DREAMS AND COUNTRY LIVING.
For many people the thought of living the big city life is the norm, it’s where a vast majority of the population was brought up and its where many others migrate towards to build the life they chase.
On the other side of that spectrum is where we lie. The big cities we have seen over the last years of touring are incredible, but what makes them so special? Home. Home for us isn’t a loud, busy concrete jungle. In fact it’s the complete opposite, acres of lush forest in the middle of nowhere with to many animals to count is what we are accustomed to.
This is what keeps balance in life. When secluded from all the loud noises of the city, you find an organic, untapped source of energy and motivation. Negativity that is tied to the big city hustle dies at the end of the driveway. Opportunities and life as a whole seem more clear when you aren’t surrounded by the constant ringing of noisy cars and police sirens. There is a sense of true freedom out in the country. Not being confined to a “social mold” you have full liberty to create anything you can think of, the possibilities are endless.
Now that you all know what environment we grew up and continue to grow in, having a dream of touring the world and playing music could seem pretty far fetched for a few country kids right? True.
Fortunately enough for us we’ve had nothing but endless support from our parents to pursue our dreams of performing from a very young age. It never mattered to them what we aspired to do they would fully back us and that is something that we’ll forever be grateful for. It was also very helpful being surrounded by music at all times from a very young age, our Dad has been playing and singing in bands since i could remember. Now that we have been fortunate enough to grow as Alone I Walk, we continued to grow our support system and team as well.
We have now made friends across North America and other parts of the world and always try host whoever we can that needs a place to stay while rolling through Winnipeg(Central Canada), in hopes everyone can leave their “headaches” at the end of the driveway and find the balance that they might need at this farm in the woods that we call home.
