Trouble Makers Interview Series – Mily (Metz, France)
“Be the person you want to be, not the one you have to be – Inside each one of you there is a Golden Nugget”
November 2016 is a date which I will cherish forever – it is the moment, I discovered the band The Trouble Notes for the first time. Thanks to the famous video on Facebook from the Strasbourg Christmas market like a lot of people, I saw the group for the first time and I literally fell in love with their music.
IT IS ALL ABOUT PASSION
Working as an Administrative Assistant in a Real Estate Agency in Luxembourg, I love travel, photography, hiking, playing badminton, and most importantly meeting people from all over the world. November 2016 is a date which I will remember forever – it is at this moment that I discovered the band The Trouble Notes thanks to the famous video on Facebook from the Strasbourg Christmas market for the first time like many others and literally fell in love with their music. It is in March 2017, that I eventually met them in person in Paris. Paris, the place where Bennet always dreamt to play, a place that inspired the group to write their great song Rocky Roads to République. It was a memorable and grand first encounter – amazing like each moment I have spent with them since this day, marking the beginning of my personal story with the band.
Since our initial meeting our relationship has been growing stronger every day, evolving and growing into a true friendship and I finally joined the Troublemakers. Our connection has meant a lot to me and the group and that’s the reason that The Trouble Notes have made me want to help them and to be there for them. They trust me and since a few months my aim is to help Steffi the Manager of the group, to promote them through France and BeneLux by helping them book concerts and festivals and also by helping them with translations of different texts from English to French, being the intermediate contact in the French market. I do it with all my heart and all my soul. They just spark an energy within me and give me positive vibes that until now I haven’t been able to find anywhere else. Each trip we have together is special, it brings me joy and touches me in the depths of my soul.
Their ability to make the audience travel and dream is absolutely exceptional. They lead the audience far into their own dreams, nourishing a lot of new emotions that just grow in your soul as soon as you listen to their unique music. Each instrument has its’ importance. After thousands of times seeing them play, I still have the same passionate feeling. The exchange of the energy between them and the audience is amazing and sometimes electric. The feeling is undescribable. For me, they are like a natural remedy, the perfect message they want to spread: be natural – just be yourself. By trusting me, they have helped me to lose my ties. They have even to some extent helped me to discover who I am. I just want to say THANK YOU my golden nuggets for sharing with me all these Troubled Moments together. Each encounter in life is like a present because it always brings you positive things whatever the end of it may be. The main goal is to trust the future because it always holds great surprises for you… like a rainbow after a storm.
