The Full Story
"For many years I struggled financially and personally as I chased a music & creative dream.
I remember every small piece of advice, inspiration, or help in some way or another went a long way! The giving back seed was planted in 2011 when a group of high school students from my hometown visited the small recording studio that I had at the time. This group consisted of around 10 youth that were part of a school program designed for helping students that have dealt with things like family troubles or being bullied, etc. They were a bright wide-eyed group of students that truly were grateful for the opportunity.
I had them all gather in the vocal booth and I recorded them singing one of their favorite songs. They were pumped! I got the chills seeing what something simple like that can do to bring joy and inspire. Even many years later I received a few messages of how that day was a game changer for a few students and it was something they never forgot ...
As I finally began to have a little success in the business quite a few years later
I wanted to give back, helping and inspiring youth that were in the same boat that I was in and facing other issues ...students that have faced anything from anxiety/depression, bullying, family struggles to just needing a boost in confidence. Around late 2020 I started the "giving back" with a guitar giveaway in my hometown and the town that I currently reside. I had students write a short essay of their story and how a guitar would help them along the way. It was incredible to read their essays and I fortunately was able to provide a guitar to each individual. It was a neat moment to meet each of them. The giving back continued after that with school visits, mentoring, and other gear giveaways. I'm looking forward to continuing this momentum in different parts of Minnesota & beyond going into 2023 with the goal of providing hope, inspiration and most importantly to instill a little piece of selflessness that the youth will carry with them as a spark to one day do their own giving back in different ways." -Greg
