Although Lindsay, Ontario may be a small town of only [roughly] twenty thousand people, one of those folks is seventeen year old Braden Barrie.
Braden is a multi-talented young man. He is also the guy behind the successful project, SayWeCanFly.
With nearly one thousand seven hundred 'likes' on Facebook and a Youtube Channel growing more popular by the day, I think everyone has now realized just how talented this guy really is.
SayWeCanFly started back in 2009 when Braden started writing and releasing his own material. However, he did not actually tour with the project until mid 2011.
Braden's music is incredibly personal which allows anyone who listens to it to be able to relate. He states, "I have written about love, heart break, my journey and my friends. Writing is my way of understanding the world I wake up to live in every day."
With two EPs and a CD already available, I do not think anyone can guess what Braden will do next. This talented young man has truly shown his passion and dedication throughout everything he has done so far. And, it only makes everyone sit on the edge of their seats as they watch this seventeen year old [continue to] take over the music scene.
As Braden says, "I will never give up and I don't want you to give up either. Chase your dreams, because if you don't, they will get away.". And, well, no one could have said it better.
Check out the interview I did with Braden when he dropped by Basement Entertainment, prior to our event, on February 3rd 2012.
