Following up his single "Hey There Mister Rodgers", Dan Kouba is releasing "We The People" everywhere Friday, May 20, 2022. As he geared up for this release, Kouba hopped on a zoom meeting with me to share his story. Where do I even begin with his story? If you read his bio, you would see that Kouba is a very accomplished and successful businessman. You would see that after his second heart surgery, he found a love for music and began a new career, however, you would not feel the emotion I felt while listening to him share that particular moment in his life. 

Artists are always asked questions like, "What made you want to get into the music industry?". For Kouba, I got the impression that it wasn't a choice, but rather, something that had to happen for life to continue. Music just had to be the answer. The answer he needed to survive was plain and simply "Music". Most everyone has heard that music is great therapy, that it heals, and is a universal language. For many, music is the only thing they know. For others, like Kouba, music becomes your path to a better life with a clear purpose of helping others as a way to ultimately help yourself.

Though we talked about many songs he has written, and the powerfully emotional stories behind them such as "Ginger", the beginning of his musical journey is what captivated me the most.  His reasons for where he is today, his grateful heart for where he has been, and for those who have been with him every step of the way are just a few of the moments shared that were so full of emotion and gratitude. The best part of this was his smile as he recounted each person's role in his being alive today and the undoubted love he has for each of them. 

As you read the press release below and get to know this country newcomer, remember that life may be short and we may think we do not have enough time to start over or find a new path, but it is because life is too short that we should never be afraid to start over or find a new path to travel. ~Missy
