FIND YOUR SHOVEL
A former pre-school teacher now standing on stages worldwide as the frontman of renowned Boston hardcore band, Vanna – Davey Muise lives his life by following his heart and pursuing his passions without fear of judgment.
Despite growing up in a broken home in New England, Davey viewed his situation as an opportunity to overcome his surroundings and use them as a platform to inspire others.
He’s harnessed the lessons he’s learned from living through depression, divorce, abandonment, and failure and used them to help inspire future generations to do better.
Davey uses his music as a vessel to tell youth across the globe that they are not alone in their fight; that although we may feel weak and useless on our own, we can band together and become a force enough to foster real change in our lives and event in the lives of others; that we can “find our shovel” and dig ourselves (and others) out of negativity we may be buried in.
Today, Davey has dedicated his life to being about people. Whether it’s touring with his bands, producing in a studio or working one on one with students, he takes the values he’s learned with punk rock and brings them to the world. He has brought those ideas to life with his nonprofit Shovel Brand, in which he raises money to help clothe homeless and at risk students in his community and, one day, the globe. Davey’s overall message is sure to hit home with everyone who hears it. Davey’ s mantra is sure to echo in your heart, mind and soul forever: “I believe in you if you believe in me.”
