What do you HAVE to do, really? “I have to go get groceries.” But… do you?

In this episode of Align, I interview Satsang’s Drew McManus. Drew is such a special and creative friend, and has touched so many with his music and creative soul. We get into the meaning of childhoods, and how certain events create our mindsets decades later. I ask all about Drew’s creative process and how he continues to make music. Drew unpacks why his band doesn’t tour anymore, doing life with a purpose, and only doing what you really have to.

“My wife, my kids, Montana, they’re all one thing to me now, they’re home.” Drew McManus is the brains behind the indie band, Satsang. He creates meaningful music through his life experiences, psychedelics, and the love for his wife, kids, and Montana. The pause from COVID-19, allowed him to stay home and connect with nature and be able to create more, meaningful music. Art has given so much to him, he just wants to give back to it, and his goal is to touch as many lives as possible.
