My music is about more than just the songs. It’s about a mindset, a way of life, a pursuit of one’s dreams. I truly believe that each and every person, no matter where they are in life, can achieve what they want if they take the appropriate steps. Sure, it may require work, focus, patience, and the ability to overcome challenges, but it would not be as fulfilling otherwise.
They say that college is the time in your life where you find yourself and what you want to do for the rest of your life. And once you find that dream career, you take courses and learn the needed knowledge, skills, and experience to make that dream a reality.
Of course learning all of the necessary requirements for that dream job is important if you want to succeed in the future. But what many students seem to forget is that it’s difficult to get far in anything if you lack the passion and drive for that certain career.
For Caleb McGinn, singer and songwriter, he is a firm believer that passion and following your heart is extremely important when it comes to what it is you want to do in life.
With a YouTube channel of over 1,000 subscribers and over 3,000 views on his videos of cover songs and originals, Caleb is continuing on his journey of making his dreams a reality despite any obstacles an up and coming artist may face.
From my experience, it seems as though many people get “stuck”, whether it be from preconceived notions or restrictions placed upon themselves by others or a lack of belief in their own abilities. Sometimes it is because people aren’t truly following their heart and doing what they love to do. Personally, I have tried out quite a few things in my short time here on earth. From different sports, to odd jobs here and there, and now to music, I’ve found that persistence and doing what you are passionate about can take you a long ways.
Starting out in a small town in Kansas to touring around the United States this year playing his hit songs such as “Bigger Picture”, Caleb is following his passion for music and performing and is on his way of making his dream of touring the entire world a reality someday soon.
Join Caleb McGinn on Monday November 25 at 8 pm in the Vets Hall at the Ellison Campus Center as he makes his debut at Salem State with a free and live performance!
