As the end of the year is fast approaching and with the holiday season about to begin, I want to take a minute to reflect on all the opportunities I've been blessed with this year + all the countries I have been fortunate enough to travel to & perform in this year with my Nervecell family. Right off the bat, the highlight of this year and biggest achievement hands down was me getting officially endorsed by ESP Guitars. Being a guitarist for 24 years and having such a massive brand support and acknowledge me and my musical journey is a truly humbling experience, a high I'm still buzzing from.
To all the amazing friends, fans and bands (old & new) I've met this year on tour in: Philippines, Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, India, Nepal, England, Czech Republic, Austria, France, Germany, Switzerland and Brazil. In one way or another, and no matter how small or lengthy our conversations may have been, I have a very good memory and it's been nothing but good times from my end!
A lot of times we get carried away with the hype, success and attention we receive that blurs our idea of reality and we basically end up taking things in life for granted... yea, NOT THIS GUY! I've genuinely worked very very hard to get to where I am today in order to follow my passion to achieve and get things done! I ain't "different", "privileged" or "lucky" to be able to follow my dreams as some might say. I'd be happy to share my list of compromises involved too, but I'd rather stay positive. What I will admit is, I've taken a few risks, risks in life that have thought me life long lessons (the stuff they don't teach you in school). It's those very same risks that have shown me a first-hand experience of what having a strong dedication, drive and focus can do.
So here's that one-off post from me giving back to life, showing appreciation of it and most importantly having no regrets!!! Cheers you guys and see you all on the road again in 2019! 📸: Veeresh.sy
