KEF spends time with Val Shively discussing what it is like to own a warehouse with over four million records for sale.

INDIVIDUALITY:
Val Shively, R&B Records

What is it like to own a warehouse with over four million records for sale? For a music fan, it’s a dream come true. For Val Shively, it’s just another day with his “babies.” But don’t expect to browse the never-ending two-story vertical rows of musical gold: “Do Not Enter (unless you know what you want).” Val has always been unconventional, and that’s what kept his store going for 60+ years. As Val says, “Being different is very, very good.”

RESILIENCE:
John Gilman on Pressure and Passion

Sharing the music you created with the world still matters, even if you’re not on the biggest stage. But how do you get back up after a loss? “There’s this massive amount of pressure on you by people to get back. You go from up here, and you fall... To me, the greatest enemy of creativity is pressure.”

Hear from John Gilman, a songwriter, guitarist, and singer from Bayville, NJ discuss how he feels about creating music after leaving The Voice.
