Braden Barrie & SayWeCanFly

This week, my guest is Braden Barrie, also known as SayWeCanFly. Braden is a musician and lyricist from Canada who has been writing, making, and distributing his own songs since he high school. He has a giant following in Canada and the U.S. A lot of his songs are thematically dark and contemplative; therapeutic in some ways. I really enjoy his songs and getting to know a little bit about him. I’m sure you will too.

Special thanks to Mikey Selenis for making this interview happen.

SayWeCanFly is opening for Plain White T’s Beginning in November.
