Michael Bublé - A Son, A Husband, A Father and A Musician

by Christina Rowsell
The Brighter Side




For Michael Bublé, nothing beats singing for his home Canada! He says there is a difference delivering a show in Canada than anywhere else in the world. “You’ll always be my peers!” explains Bublé. It means that much more to play for his home. At the end of his show he hope that you’ve been “blown away”. His passion is his music, but his love is his family. Michael’s wife Luisana Lopilato and their son Noah are what take the stress out of his life.

In my conversation with Bublé, he explains that he hopes to pass down the same traits his own father shared with him.  Michael Bublé is a very compassionate man with a beautiful heart.  I hope you enjoy our chat together.

Grow Calgary

Paul Hughes is a food activist who has put his energy into a farm where the entire harvest is being donated to the local food bank!  Just west of Canada Olympic Park, in Calgary AB, is a 4.5 hectare farm.  Land that is being used to fill the food hampers for Calgary families and individuals. 

The organization is totally run entirely by volunteers.  And they are always looking for more.  Don’t be afraid if you don’t know what to do.  They will help you and teach you. 

What a fantastic way to make sure the community has FRESH produce.  A typical food bank donation usually consists of non-perishable items. 

Happy Birthday, Grow Calgary! Celebrating their first year.  Here’s to many more.
I had the chance to chat with Paul.

Adam Stanton Summertime

by Christina Rowsell

Adam Stanton popped in to say Hi!  His music rep played his new single (stay tuned set to be released June 16th) and then Adam played a song.  My first thought was, this guy is singing with his heart and soul.  You could feel his music.  Nothing else around him mattered.  It's about the music.  It's about how it makes you feel.  And being a DJ for the past 22 years, I've learned that's EXACTLY what it's about.  It's how it makes you feel!  And if you come across and artist who is taping into the emotions of the song, you've found a true artist!

Adam started his musical ride as a kid.  A talented one at that.  His first 'gig' at the age of 10 was as a member of  “The Young Canadians of The Calgary Stampede”.

Keeping up the momentum, in high school he formed the boy band “Off Limitz”. Off Limitz achieved radio play with their song “Forgot About You” (written by Adam) on various Canadian stations, including TOP-40 station POWER 107.3 in Calgary. (I may have worked at Power 107.3 back in the day.... wink wink.)  So when I saw Adam come into the station today, I thought to myself.... I know this guy.  I wasn't sure if he remembered who I was, but eventually he said "I know who you are."  Nice to be remembered.  I'm really just thrilled to see that he's come so far with his exceptional talent!

Today Adam continues to make his music.  Not only as the front man, but as a producer and writer.  I asked Adam how he got to where he is today and he explained that back in 2011, he tested the waters by recording and posting videos to his YouTube channel, showcasing his vocal abilities, guitar, and production skills. That turned into gold!  His YouTube videos have already accumulated over 1.3 MILLION views! Well done Adam!  Here's to many more tunes!  I'm certainly looking forward to it!

Have a listen yourself!  Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride! https://www.youtube.com/user/StantonMusicOnline
