My guest for 08/27/14 is Dave Carroll.
Dave Carroll is an award winning singer-songwriter, professional speaker, author and social media innovator based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He began his music career with his brother Don in the band Sons of Maxwell and has been enjoying success as a solo artist since 2008.
For over two decades, Dave has charmed fans with his approach to music. His ability to extract the essence of a message and craft it into song is a rare gift that is attracting fans of all ages, while his sense of humor and disarmingly warm stage presence makes each live experience a memorable one for audiences around the world.
Known as a master storyteller, Dave’s incredible talent was introduced to millions when his 2009 anthem United Breaks Guitars became a worldwide sensation. The song chronicled his experience in the customer service process with United Airlines. His creative use of social media to share that message as an Independent Musician, has reached over 150 million people.
We'll be talking about the five year anniversary of his first of three videos for United Breaks Guitars which has now had over 14,000,000 views on YouTube. We'll also talk about his inspiring book "United Breaks Guitars… The Power of One Voice in the Age of Social Media" which is published by Hay House. During the show I'll also play a beautiful song, Now, from Dave's solo album Perfect Blue.
