Last month we hosted Addie Sartino of The Greeting Committee at Getaway Ozark Highlands outside of Kansas City so she could disconnect from the city to reconnect to who and what matters most. Here’s what she had to say about her music, her connection to nature, and her Getaway.
My name is Addie Sartino. I’m the oldest of six. The only child between my parents. I’m a fiercely loyal friend. A hopeless romantic. A “yes” person. Slightly impulsive. Incredibly Type A. My band, The Greeting Committee, signed a record deal with Capitol when I was 16, making me one of the luckiest people I know. I’m currently working on replacing fear with gratitude – Thank you, Brené Brown.
My connection to nature is similar to my connection with music. For me, it’s an escape. A safe space to explore the inside by being outside of it. I used my Getaway as a chance to connect with two of my siblings. There’s a common theme of being the eldest daughter and a big sister in my music so this trip certainly contributed inspiration.
