Busking for Sleepbus

SleepBus Music Video “Lucky Karma Gun”

When V & I play together we call ourselves Gone Westerly. Here is a song we wrote for SleepBus call “Lucky Karma Gun”. 

Hi, my name is Martin (stage name: DADN8A) and I’m a busker in Melbourne.  When I’m out busking I often meet people on the streets who are doing it tough. Through meeting some of these folk I’ve realised that it can often only be a few things that need to go wrong in a persons life to leave them in a homeless situation.  Luckily I’m doing ok, and so made the decision to donate all my busking money to Sleepbus.  

I have a sign on my guitar case that explains how every $10 donated pays for one nights temporary and safe accommodation for one homeless person.  This really resonates with many people who hear my music and stop to read the sign.  I hope these people like my music, but more importantly, I hope that they see the value in supporting the Sleepbus cause. I know that they do because I see their generosity each time I busk.

Every couple of weeks or so I drop in at the Sleepbus depot and hand over a big pile of coins and notes.  It makes me feel really good to be able to do this.

Rock on.
