I was inspired by one of my friends/student affairs colleagues who recently released some songs with his band The VIr (Old Train Car… LOVE this song) and it had me wondering about what other student affairs professionals sing and/or perform in bands. I’ve always been in awe of people with musical talent (myself possessing none) and wanted to support them in their pursuits.
I put out a call through social media and here are some of the singers and band members I uncovered. Give them a listen and support them. If there are others we should know about, throw them in the comments.
(And for the artists out there, if you’d prefer I link to something else, use a different image, or remove you, just let me know. I want to represent you he way you want to be represented.)
