Written by Norm Goldman

Continued from page 1


What wasrepparttar first piece of music you ever wrote? What wasrepparttar 144951 reaction?

Dan: I can't remember. It was probably something inrepparttar 144952 classical guitar idiom. I've always made sure to ask people who I knew would be supportive - a stacked deck, if you will, in my favor.


Do you set yourself daily, weekly, yearly goals? If so, what are some of your goals?

Dan: Yes, I definitely have to set daily goals, otherwise a whole day passes me buy, and I feel like I've done nothing. These goals are rewarding because I can say, for example, I'm going to work on words for an hour, and then atrepparttar 144953 end ofrepparttar 144954 hour I've done it - it might all be shit, but at least I've stayed with it, and it'll likely turn into something good at some point. In contrast, saying that I want to tourrepparttar 144955 world byrepparttar 144956 time I'm 33 is a bit more difficult to materialize. Ultimately, I know that if I keep writing and touring, I will get led to greater accomplishments in my craft as well as a greater fan base with more touring opportunities.


You are a guitarist, song writer, poet, and arranger. Which ofrepparttar 144957 above do you prefer and why?

Dan: At this point, I'm a singer-songwriter. It's what I practice on a daily basis, and it's how I'm starting to become known.


I understand that in Canada there are Music Festival Travel Grants as well as other travel grants that assist professional Canadian musicians to perform at festivals outside their province or territory of residence.

Apparently, these grants are given to introduce experience artists to new audiences at an early stage of their career to a wider public. Have you ever received this assistance and if so, could you tell our audience how beneficial have they been fromrepparttar 144958 point of view of furthering your career?

Dan: Yes, I've received some assistance fromrepparttar 144959 Canada Council forrepparttar 144960 Arts and it has been extremely helpful. I got a tour grant last year, for instance, which allowed me to tour acrossrepparttar 144961 country. Althoughrepparttar 144962 tour wasn't as well organized as I'd hoped for, it did provide me with a new network of people acrossrepparttar 144963 country who have since become very supportive, including my current manager, Candace Elder.


Do you think there is some kind of a connection between music and travel?

Dan: Absolutely. Traveling, whether physical or emotional, provides a new perspective, or a new backdrop, if you will, to your old script. It makes your story seem a little more vibrant, and therefore, worthy of being documented, which of course, is one ofrepparttar 144964 main purposes of art.


What is next for Dan Goldman and is there anything you wish to add that we have not covered?

Dan: I have a tour beginning in August that I hope will bring me from coast to coast. I'm also working on some new songs and am really excited to record them inrepparttar 144965 new year.

Thanks Dan and good luck with all of your future endeavors. Thanks Norm
