Today I speak with Dave Carroll - singer songwriter and storyteller. Dave was catapulted onto the international stage in 2009 after he created the music video called United Breaks Guitars. It was in response to United Airlines after they refused to help pay for his guitar that got broken on route to a show. We chat about storytelling, how his video launched him a new career path, what organizations need to know about customer service and in Soul Sister Conversations fashion we talk fate, serendipity and life purpose. And an extra bonus…Dave sings a song from his new album called Until One Day which is available now.
Known as a master storyteller, Dave’s incredible talent was introduced to millions when his 2009 anthem ‘United Breaks Guitars’ became a worldwide sensation.
