Nova Scotia-based musician Rich Aucoin shares his new video for “The Dream” today. On the heels of his critically acclaimed Hold EP, the video was filmed in Los Angeles and explores the importance of persistence when striving for one’s goals.
“Living the dream doesn’t just mean following the path to some outcome but rather is a daily decision one makes to continue to live authentically to themselves,” Rich comments. “In the video, the struggling actor never gets his big break but is still content knowing that he’s done all he can do and followed it through.”
Take a listen to “The Fear” from Nova Scotia-based musician Rich Aucoin from his upcoming release of the Hold EP (set for release on 3/16). “The Fear” follows the release of previous singles “Release” and “The Middle,” all of which will be featured on the upcoming EP. The dreamy four-track collection is a stark contrast to the short high-tempo songs from his previous release, hinting toward a rebirth for Aucoin. Recorded in twelve studios across Canada from Vancouver’s REC Room to Halifax’s Sonic Temple, the EP features Broken Social Scene’s Justin Peroff as well as unique instrumentals and vocal sampling techniques.
Unlike a traditional tour, Aucoin will be bicycling from city to city via the PRESS ON tour, raising awareness for mental health by donating 100% of tour proceeds to Mental Health America and The Canadian Mental Health Association.
