FEATURED MUSICIAN Guillermo Subauste: PUSHING CEILINGS Guillermo Subauste is a Producer/Engineer originally from Lima, Peru, now based in Toronto. A very eclectic list of collaborators, ranging from the world music troubadour Quique Escamilla to the Spaghetti Western of The Sadies, allow him to keep making music in Canada and around the world. Figuring out how a collaborative effort that includes so many different experiences and states of mind to come to the completion of a song or album, has always been something that fascinated Guillermo. As a self-taught musician, what originally was a desire to make music and register it for posterity, ended up forging into a career that allowed him to explore his own experience through human art. Through his moStory and music, Guillermo will unravel where art and emotion meet. http://pachasound.com
June Morrow: FINDING HOME At 47, June Morrow was living in a basement apartment, bitter that despite a good government job and savings, she would likely never achieve one of the key milestones of adulthood: owning a house in the city where she lives. Today, she resides in a "castle by the lake,” is mortgage-free and has never felt more at home. June Morrow helps blocked and struggling creatives get out of indecision and overthinking and into clarity and action so they can create books, plays, paintings, music, podcasts, blogs and other works of art that make a difference. In addition to coaching, she is an author, playwright and soon-to-be former public servant. Learn more at https://www.junemorrow.com
