Father's Day 2016

Music was everything growing up... 

Lyne (my mum), Mirelle (my cousin), Ray (my step-dad), and me (20 pounds heavier than today).

IIIII AAAAMMMM IIIIRRROOONNNN MMAAAAANNNNNNN!!!!!!", yelled a modified Ozzy Ozbourne voice as I tried to sleep in on the weekend. It was the the start to another work day in the Feikert household and my step-dad wanted to make sure I knew it was time to rise and shine and get the hell out of bed!

(Oddly enough, Mirelle (the bride in the photo above) was in the room down the hall, getting ready for another day during her own summer job. She's my cousin and I shot her wedding last year in Ontario.)

When I think about my relationship with my father music is the first thing that pops into my head. It was a steady dose of 70s-80s hard rock with some Janis Joplin mixed in (for what reason, God only knows.) But his love of music was part of the reason I went on to get a degree in music and eventually start this business. 

So, in celebration of father's day, I put together a small list of memorable songs that I shared with my dad growing up.

Happy Fathers Day!
