#44 - Creating Music and Living Out of a Van named Ruby with Musician Ira Wolf

On this episode of the Formula, I sit down with traveling musician Ira Wolf. A few months ago, I attended a house concert where Ira played a heartfelt show and brought many in the audience to tears with her lyrics. Her song Sunshine almost brought me to tears because I had just gone through a breakup (terrible timing.) Her singing is truly special and she brings her lyrics to life in an authentic, heartfelt way that will pull at the heartstrings of even the strongest among us. I really enjoyed this interview with Ira and am excited to hear her play again in the future.
