StopGap on Tour

Show notes

Tim Moxam has partnered with Toronto’s StopGap Foundation, which builds ramps for community spaces to increase accessibility, and launched StopGap on Tour. Moxam collaborated with some fellow songwriters and crafters to build a series of special-edition StopGap ramps, pre-ordered and spec’d to accommodate the needs of non-accessible venues, cafes, record stores, and other community hubs that Moxam would be visiting on his recent East Coast tour. Hear about this cool initiative, how you can get involved for the future, and some of the peripheral benefits that come with it.

We also chat with Michael “Wanz” Wansley, who spent his life as a working musician before a song he featured on from a local rapper blew up into a global phenomenon. The song was “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, with Wanz’s distinctive voice featured prominently in the chorus. That led to a whirlwind couple years for Wanz, allowing him to fulfill a lot of his childhood dreams, before the song receded in the public consciousness and he had to figure out life after sudden and short-lived commercial success. In this inspiring conversation, Wanz discusses life before, during, and after “Thrift Shop” and how it changed his thinking about fame and success in music.
