Lessons from Local Leaders:

John Walsh

Ever wondered how you can balance a passion for music with a full-time career? John Walsh, a talented musician and DJ, shares his inspiring journey from a childhood fascination with drums to performing at renowned venues like the Cuberment Winery in Little Washington. John takes us through his early days, his natural ability to play by ear, and the unwavering support of his parents that led him to master multiple instruments. His story is a testament to the power of nurturing talent and the joy of translating that passion into live performances.

John opens up about the trials of carving out a music career, especially in the face of the pandemic, and the crucial role that networking plays. Discover how he leveraged social media platforms and collaborated with Patrick Gomez from Sightlift to build a robust online presence. John’s diverse musical influences, from rock bands to Frank Sinatra, showcase his versatility and the practical benefits of his skills. Listen as he reveals the serendipitous connections made through his day job in the roofing insurance sector and his strategies for overcoming the inconsistencies of social media marketing.

Balancing multiple career paths, John delves into the intricacies of managing a nine-to-five job alongside creative pursuits like emceeing and photography. He reflects on the importance of flexibility and support from employers, and how maintaining different circles of friends aids in adapting to new environments. The episode wraps up with a poignant live performance of “Identity Crisis,” a song that beautifully captures the struggles of self-discovery and fitting into new settings. John’s insights on empathy and understanding make this conversation one that resonates long after the music stops. Tune in for an episode rich in storytelling, music, and heartfelt reflections.
