Daily Inspiration: Meet Gauldan Blvd

Today we’d like to introduce you to Gauldan Blvd.

Hi Gauldan, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I’m a model and musician from a small town you might’ve heard of Toledo Ohio… born and raised when I was about 16, I entered myself in this big fancy model competition at the time I knew nothing about modeling besides Zoolander and Americas Next top model lol HUGE inspirations of mine .. but I gave it what I called modeling and out of 200 aspiring models I made it to the top 5 from there I began learning all that I could about the industry and doing everything I could to gain recognition for modeling in my city. Modeling is beautiful but we all know that that’s just not enough still my heart would always long to be heard through pictures.

Since a child, I’ve been singing my favorite songs to everyone I knew and entertaining them with my natural gestures, enunciation, and mannerisms. Everything was natural to me but to everyone else it was always entertaining. Then of course, I grew to know it was, so that fueled me. It always has. To know that I am brightening someone’s day being myself naturally is amazing to me. I’m grateful for that. and the fact that I can do that frequently makes me happy.

I write songs to express myself, other people and how they may feel or need to feel in words everyone deserves a voice. That’s 16 I began writing music experimentally and it was the feeling I had been longing for all my life and when my peers said they loved the sound I created that created a feeling that I’d imagine a mother feels when they compliment her for her babies beauty and development, I never stopped writing music I recorded a few songs that we’re practice tries but I knew that I could do better.

I’m at B Jones at demo review session while I was 18 writing music for a singer that was well known at the time in my city.

After he found out who was the one pushing the pen he asked to hear more from me so he convinced me to show him some of my top secret tracks. I was insecure because I knew that my sound was very different and I wasn’t too sure how it would take to people then but he basically reassured me it was great he told me I was holding on to gifts that need to be shared with the world he helped really build my confidence as an artist in feeling that I was worthy of being or even considering me as a music artist.

Now currently, I am signed with the state doing music modeling and also now freelance creative direction here in downtown LA I plan to grow as an artist and inspire the world through my words and my expression my mission to raise the entire vibration of this earth through the art I create, Love Music Family Justice Peace Are all equally important to me.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
I wouldn’t say that it was a smooth road just you know trying to figure it all out on my own being different and not having people to relate to when it came to the things that I was trying to birth from my head was a struggle so I battled with not feeling understood I have felt that if I wasn’t understood then it was the end of the world but I swallow that I just know that you know you’ll never be fully understood and that’s all right.

Other than the other typical growing up things like learning to keep your finances in check and making the right sacrifices to make sure the plan goes smooth on your own end.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
Well, I’m a model a musician but I specialize in helping others express themselves when in my presence people feel more understood because I’ve been extrasensory to that all my life Period what sets me apart is that I study humans and understand fundament that they don’t LOL If you will not trying to sound like a Nostra Damas or anything but more so I pay attention to their subconscious actions in tones and it tells me a lot about a person and how to get through to them how to get them to understand. I’m most known for being creative and being magnetic and getting the situation lit. I’m most proud of the fact that the scary as it is, I continue to unapologetically be myself wherever I am people recognize that and it’s inspirational so I’m most proud of being an inspiration to others like me unintentionally.

Alright, so to wrap up, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
I’d like to share with my readers that you can be anything you want in this world as long as you believe and that may sound so cliché but it is the keys to life that I’m handing you right here in these words.
