It’s a rare event when you get to end an interview hanging out with a musician just after you’ve interviewed them at the Four Seasons, especially during one of the busiest music conferences in the world SXSW. But that’s just the kind of guy Cary Brothers is.
Molly has been a fan of Cary’s music for a while and booked the interview. I don’t think any of us fully knew what to expect. Musicians are often bombarded with the same questions when being interviewed, and their answers tend to get watered down throughout the cycle. Often times you can read any number of articles or bio’s written about certain musicians, but you’ll never experience what their story, struggle, or passion which has defined their music actually entailed. Cary surpassed all of these cliché’s. Trying to explain to him Roadtrip’s motives and convincing him of the same excitement we had for our project was easy. He immediately picked up the concept, and right from the start was more honest and open than we had envisioned. What I loved most about his interview was how easy it was. It really did feel as though we were sitting down with a friend, and by the end of it we were. But perhaps what compelled me the most about the dialogue with Cary wasn’t his struggle or his message of not giving up, although all very good things…. What grabbed my attention was the way he described his support system. As though the best part of his job was seeing his friends succeed, because after all, there’s a lot of truth to this. Our creations are only as good as the people we let influence them.
A special thanks to Cary Brothers and Brandon Walters for taking the time to hang out. Also, thanks to everyone who supports Roadtrip. You guys allow us to hang out with these incredible leaders throughout our communities. We’re extremely fortunate to be doing what we do. Our hopes are that through these documentaries and curriculum we encourage you to take your own excursions and discover the wisdom that can help understand what your own passion in life is.
