We had the good fortune of connecting with Promise To Myself and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Promise To Myself, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
We like to think that our goal as a band is to provide a change in the world, not only through our music but through RnR. RnR is a memorial foundation based in Whitecourt, Canada that we love working with, every chance we get. Here is their mission statement; Ryder and Radek were known as exceptional athletic competitors and even better teammates. Through their ability to compete they learned many valuable life lessons. Due to the current economic landscape and growing cost of athletics, the opportunity for our youth to play sports has become less prevalent and in turn, more of a privilege. The R and R Foundation will set out to ensure that no youth in Whitecourt will ever be held back from exploring their athletic potential due to financial limitations.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
The road that lead us to where we are today has been a very long one filled with countless failures and just as many successes. It hasn’t been easy navigating such an ephemeral and changing industry but with the right help from the people we’ve met along the way, we are confident that we can carve a path of our own. We do it for the music, we do it for our fans, and we do it for ourselves. There are still so many things that we need to accomplish but we are on the right track and we will be forever grateful for the support that got us here, so thank you.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We start the day off at Noon, we wake up with the violent intent of getting Black Rock Coffee before anything else. Then we move on to lunch, usually Casa De Falafel or Filiberto’s. We move on to hanging out around town whether it be Tempe Marketplace, basketball at the parks, driving amongst all the cool desert spots. Then we end the day spending cooking, playing poker, and hanging out.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
We’d love to give a shoutout to our amazing manager Stacy Nupoff for helping us with our music careers!
