Inspiration Bomb – Gotye and Tash Parker (Part 2)

“The more you learn about anything, the more amazing it makes it seem”

Wally de Backer, (Gotye), Inspiration Bomb # 37.

Welcome back to 2015!

Today, we’re excited to present our first Inspiration Bomb for the year; Part Two of my conversation with Gotye (Wally de Bakker), with illustrations by Tash Parker.

In this Bomb, Wally discusses navigating the music industry and, well, life really! Not only that, Wally talks passionately about exploring the origins of music. He’s a thinker and we love him for it.
