Now granted...when you go to a pumpkin patch you probably don't think "music."
We have the most amazing pumpkin patch which our family goes to every year. We travel for hours to see family in Omaha, Nebraska.
While there, we go to Vala's Pumpkin Patch! ...the most amazing pumpkin patch in the world! Breakdown: if Disney were to start a pumpkin patch, it would probably look like Vala's...
...kid's rides, dog shows, pig races, giant slides, campfires, automated characters, and an amazing pie barn. Yes. PIE!
When Mr. Vala got started 35 years ago, he didn't really know anything about making a pumpkin patch, BUT he had vision and a desire to take people on a journey.
The reason why I love going to Vala's is for the experience I share with my family. The journey.
The reasons Mr. Vala started Vala's Pumpkin Patch are very similar to the reasons that I started making music...
...I want to take people on a journey when they listen to my music. Why? Because every song is a journey for me. People who listen to my songs take their own authentic journey.
I get to write my own songs! I'm lucky. No big industry tells me how to write a lyric, a melody, etc. The result? ...It's extremely authentic for me.
If I can't connect with my song, why would I want to sing it? No one is going to hear me sing emotionless song. No way! I want to connect with that song again and again - otherwise, it's not worth singing. That's powerful ...and extremely fulfilling.
No corporate filter. Just authentic music that takes people on a journey. That's winning.
That's why we love going to Vala's. It takes people on a journey they want to go on again and again.
