Thanks to Latvian National Television for having my band and I on the show to discuss my purpose and motivation as a musician. Anytime you can share a positive message on a major platform it's a blessing #latvijastelevīzija #riga???????? pic.twitter.com/femIGfQWAO— Wordsmith (@Wordsmith) May 14, 2019
