Rich Aucoin - May 4, 2008 - Artist of the Day - His Amazing Journey

GJK Promotions proudly presents, Rich Aucoin from Halifax, Nova Scotia as Artist of the Day.

Rich Aucoin plays indie and pop music. Rich is a one-man show of more than 25 instruments rolled into a big-sound indie-pop album which can also be synced to a childhood classic, Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas (taken from his cd baby). Rich Aucoin had a alternative approach last summer to touring Canada. Rich decided that he was going to start in Victoria, British Columbia (on the opposite side of Canada) and BIKE (yeap a bicycle not the motor kind) his way back to Halifax, Nova Scotia. His inspiration was his father and the Icecream Man All the time, Rich was fundraising for the Childhood Cancer Foundation along the way. You can read all about his journey on The Coast (I could only find the blog that started on Blog 10 and ended with Blog 54 somewhere in the middle I did find blog 7 and 8, hmmm, but there are 6 pages worth of pics and summaries, some are pretty hilarious, so don't foget to check it out).

Rich is an amazing musician that thinks outside the box. To find out more about Rich, read his myspace blog (that is full of pictures, articles and his "grinch" experiences), purchase the Rich Aucoin ep, watch some videos, find his honorable mentions and of course listen to his music, check out the Rich Aucoin myspace at

Cheers and Inspire :)

*I am kind of curious what Rich has up his sleeve for this summer ;)
