I found out about singer/songwriter Zoë Ryan through Cayden Hodgson, a friend I met at UH. Cayden was also from Perth and moved to Melbourne shortly after he returned. There, he met up with Zoë, a friend from Perth who was looking for a band for her solo project. Cayden joined Zoë and four others to form Zoë Ryan & the Dandy Lion. Thanks to Zoë Ryan for taking part in the interview and to Cayden for letting me know about Zoë and the band. To find out more, you can head to their iTunes, Bandcamp, Facebook or Twitter. You can also check out the Wireframe Records Website or Wireframe Records Facebook.

No one else in the world can offer what you have to give. Honour the temple within your own heart, listen to no one else’s opinion but your own. Keep going, when you know and live your Truth it has its own rewards. Remember why you are doing this. Create with love and let it all unfold naturally. Get lost in your work, and you’ll find yourself there too.
“You’ve heard it a thousand times from others, because its true: The best advise we can give is make sure you are designing because you absolutely love what you do. We have learned that your true passion will show when you are able to fall back on it, it will be there to catch you when deadlines linger, long hours tick on, do it first and foremost because you absolutely love it.”
