Apollo Rising: Music

For some, songs are just a part of their day. For others, music fuels their everyday. Today’s #PassionPreview comes from Ontario’s very own alt-electronic duo Apollo Rising.: “Music! From taking lessons as kids, to playing in the concert and jazz bands in high school, music has always been a part of our lives.”


Why music? “Music is one of the most incredible things. It covers the entire spectrum of human emotion, and anyone who plays music can relate to that almost indescribable feeling that comes with playing music, and creating something. Music breaks down barriers and brings us all closer together.”

To someone not interested in music: “I kind of wish I knew someone who didn't like any music at all. I'm not sure such people exist, but if they did, I would like to hear what they have to say. I don't see how anyone could dislike something so fundamentally human.”

To someone interested in music: “Just start! Starting in music, whether you're learning an instrument or trying to start a new project, can be very intimidating. With the internet, it's easy to get stuck comparing yourself to others, and this can be very paralyzing. The real secret to achieving anything is to JUST START!”
