Saskatchewan, Nashville and Hockey.
Have you have wondered where I got the amazing music for the intro to Awesome People? Well wonder no longer. My next interview is with Jarred Nicklen, singer, songwriter, and the man behind the music for Awesome People.
Jarred grew up in Saskatchewan on a farm but, fortunately for him, did very little farming. He was drawn to music at a young age, and he knew he was destined to be a musician.
He works with many musicians today including:
- Jason Hastie
- Aaron Pollock
- Elijah Lucian
- Alex Hughes
- Crystal Mcgrath, who is the Gurl in their band Boy and Gurl.
Jarred is kind and incredibly sweet. We’ve been friends for years now and I’m honestly not being biased when I say he is one of my favorite musicians. Honestly! He is just that good.
One of my favorite songs from Jarred and his band Boy&Gurl, is Loss. ( you can google - Boy&Gurl, Loss Video - to find it )
During our interview it seemed helicopters continuously flew over our heads…..but they couldn't find us (thank goodness), and we managed to finish the interview. Unfortunately, I was unable to edit this out, but to make up for the racket Jarred wrote an incredible instrumental piece just for this interview! ( It’s tacked onto the end )
So without further ado, Jarred Nicklen!
I hope you enjoyed this interview with another amazing community hero!
