The Sun Also Rises

I went to an album launch party yesterday. Several amazing musicians spoke about the record producer Glenn Suravech.

One of the most profound speeches was by Ryan, who runs a merch company called Blacklava.

He said that Glenn was a a role model for him, because he constantly works at himself, as a person and as an artist, and that this album, "Mosaic Liberator," is one of the products of this evolution. Glenn also works with Jackson Browne, whose latest album received over a dozen Grammy nominations.

Ryan then said that his wish for everyone in the room, was true financial independence--that we could all turn to one another and say: hey, do you want to go to Paris?

And he ended with--So let's all go to Paris!

It was one of the most inspiring things I had ever heard.
