This is a clip from an interview I did on the Peacock Podcast where we talk about the voice of the SABOTEUR and how guys like Thomas Edison was able to deal with this “inner critic”. I end with playing a cover of the Paul Simon song “Bridge Over Troubled Water“.
Listen to the full band version of this song I recorded in 2004 on Spotify HERE.

I sing a song I wrote for my Ingrid (my late wife) for our 7 year anniversary called “Seven”. It was a major moment in our relationship that shifted us into having more hope with and for each other.

A few little stories about how Mr. Rogers changed my life… and the power of being seen. Who has seen YOU in your life? The people who believed in you, cared for you, called out the best in you, and were able to look beyond your fuck-ups. Those people deserve to be honoured.
The song “Don’t Let Go” is a PJ Morton cover. That guy is worth checking out.

Months in the making, and now “TIDE” is born… the latest single & music video co-written with a coaching client as a little “Songwriting Adventure”.
My hope is that this would encourage all of you who are struggling to risk again in relationship… to be vulnerable.
To let your heart show.
To not live in protection mode.
To trust again… or to trust yourself and your intuition. Because there will always be “what-ifs”. And at the end of the day, I think everyone wants to see your true self although it’s incredibly hard to share that sometimes.
May you find safety and a soft place to land…. whether with yourself or with someone you love.
Do you have the juice to deal with your fear? In the winter of 2021 I was interviewed by Nathan Peacock and we get into “the juice”… no, not roids. The juice is the fuel / motivation / vision to continue down the path… whatever that is. Could be a job / relationship / goal.
If you have lost your juice and need some help overcoming fear or starting to dream again, reach out to Nico for a coaching session here.
The song “Fields of Gold” performed by my childhood friend Ari Neufeld & I (Nico Boesten) on my back deck. This song is really meaningful as Ari performed this live at my wedding to my late wife in Holland in 1997.

From the top of Knox Mountain in Kelowna we (and by “we” I mean “I”) talk about the beautifully sucky gifts of being broken along with a new original breakup song “Storm”.
I reference the Japanese art known as Kintsukuroi: the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise, acknowledging that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken.
If you need / want some support working through some hard & broken times, reach out to Nico for a coaching session here.
