Avicii

I never had the opportunity to work with Avicii. I wish I did because I heard great things about him and his camp. Unfortunately, I won’t get that chance.Tim Bergling, the Swedish EDM star, passed away last week.

I think like the rest of the world, I was shocked to hear the news. A talented soul that was taken too soon. But selfishly, I can’t help but think how we are the same age. He had so much more in his life to accomplish.

As of now, there aren’t any reports of his cause of death. But I do know this. He was well respected in the music world and his fans adored him. He was primarily known for his dance style/remixed, heavy beats music. I’ll be the first to admit, his music is catchy.

Below I attached this awesome article about Avicii and his love for his music. It’s important to know that there are pop stars who give a damn about their work. It has passion and meaning behind it. He loved his work. And as someone who works in the industry, that’s the only reason why most of us do what we do. We love our work.

Rest In Peace

“I Haven’t Slept A Wink”

I’m so tired, I have no idea sometimes what I am doing. I forget what day of the week it is, I forget to shower sometimes, there was one day I was so tired I forgot to eat.

Why you ask, I’m putting in about 60 to 70 hours per week. This past week I put in about 80 hours. I’m pretty exhausted, but I think it’s getting me somewhere.

So, what have I been doing?

I was a PA for my friend Kyle Olson for a new reality show he’s working on. I don’t know much about TV, but it was a  good experience for me. Just working on set and understanding how the TV world  works puts me one step up. Thanks Kyle for the experience!

My recent PA gig was for the NAA conference with music performances in between. This gig was more of a business setting, but it was really good experience. I got more hands on experience with stage/sound/lighting concepts.

My Point: I’m working really hard in getting my career going, so much I’m almost pushing myself too hard. But I’m doing it to give my family and myself a better life. A life that I can enjoy the things I want to and give happiness to those in my life.
