This week my guests are the wild and wonderful Josh and Katie Pascoe of Fresh Breath! I had a blast recording this episode with my life long friends. I am very proud of their decision to quit their day jobs to pursue their wildest dream as professional musicians. These two have been playing music together for as long as I can remember so I couldn’t be more happy for them and it was a pleasure to interview them at this stage of their life adventure together. Fresh Breath is a rock-n-roll/ folk, husband and wife duo whose music is focused on spreading love and connection in the modern day. Josh said it well when he quoted Bob Marley; “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” I was lucky enough to have them play a new song “Pull” from their upcoming album. It was a touching song Katie wrote to connect with her Father who passed away years ago. Powerful podcast full of peace, love, and Fresh Breath! In this episode we talk about their recent adventure to playing in Jamaica, their across Canada summer tour, we talk about finding music during times of heartbreak and loss, how the ancient beat of a drum has an amazing ability to drop us into the present moment, flow state and performing live music, and what music has taught them each about life. Please check out this episode and stop by www.freshbreathband.com to follow along and find upcoming tour dates. This episode is dedicated to their roady and four legged friend Shibby who passed away the day this is being released after 14 wild and crazy years! Keep rockin Shib!
