This week I was blessed with the opportunity to chat with Adrian Galvin, the front man of Yoke Lore and also former drummer of Walk The Moon. Adrian shared insightful thoughts about what inspires his music and how he hopes to find connections in everything. We all know that life is not perfect and no matter how hard we try things usually do not live up to all of our expectations. Adrian explained how he’s tried to find the best balance in life that is needed to deal with these constant changes that we are all forced to deal with. His newest EP, Absolutes, is about accepting changes and how to make the best of them in order to feel comfortable and to be a genuinely happy person, which is far easier said than done, but it’s something that we can all definitely strive for. There are many ways to do so, for Adrian he has been able to do this by becoming interested in Taoism, an ancient Chinese religion. In his interview he explains what Taoism is and how it has influenced his life.
After the interview I was fortunate enough to make it out to his show in downtown Austin at Barracuda where I was blown away by the amount of passion and positive energy that was shared. The environment that was created in that quaint downtown club venue was absolutely incredible. I felt so free, loved, and happy to be alive.
An incredible person and a very talented artist, Adrian hopes to offer relief and clarification to his fans with his work and through his shows. Check out his interview and go listen to Absolutes (out now on Spotify) to get to know Yoke Lore. You won’t be disappointed!
