“When you have the time you don’t have the money, and when you have the money, you don’t have the time” – these are the words singer-songwriter Michel Neray spoke aloud to no one in particular while he was walking three dogs on Eglinton Ave in Toronto.
His motivational speaking and consulting business tanked during the pandemic, and he had started walking dogs for his wife’s business when he got the call that he had landed his biggest consulting contract. To add to that, he had just started to get somewhere with his songwriting. Now, how to juggle all those responsibilities?
That’s the premise of his song, “Don’t Look Behind.” His songwriting takes listeners on a journey, making decisions to follow your heart without regrets.
