“One of the amazing things about this job is getting to travel and visit new places. Music will always be my first love but my second love is travel. It is such a wonderful by-product of what we do. We get to experience different cultures and traditions. We are all products of who we meet and our experiences,” said Osmunson in an interview withiSing Magazine.
