My friend Darren and I have a special connection. His wife and my husband went to high school together. They were friends back in the day, and still remain so now – which is pretty rare for my husband, honestly. But what is even cooler is that the four of us have become good friends. And still remain so now.
What I love the most about Darren is that he wasn’t afraid to follow his dream. When we met, he was working a job that he didn’t love to support his family. His wife said, go, do, dream!
And he did.
He started singing, playing and touring with a very influential bluegrass band, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver. We had the opportunity to see them a few years ago at Rockygrass here in Lyons, Colorado – and while you may guess that bluegrass isn’t my *all-time* fave music, I certainly can see the artistry and talent, especially when the fingers get a-flyin’. [Yeah, OK, we were kind of blown away.]
But Darren is now ready to take it even further. He’s stepping out on his own. With some other really talented dudes.
And who did he call when he needed a logo? MOI. The wife of his wife’s close friend from high school. I was so honored. And think it turned out kind of cool.
Cause he rocks. In a bluegrassy kind of way.
