About the Team

Abram Siegel-Rivers

Founder and Chief Visionary Officer – One Day

Abram grew up in a multicultural home in the San Francisco Bay area. In high school, he discovered a passion for music as a creative outlet for his self-expression. He eventually started a band in college, The Voodoo Fix, and toured with them across the US and Europe for over 13 years. His varied experiences as a touring musician opened Abram up to a path of self-discovery.

After years of touring and recording, he journeyed through an existential inquiry, asking himself, “Who am I?,” “Why am I,” and “Why bother?”. It was at the end of 2019 when he discovered his calling, and the One Day vision and nonprofit was born. One Day is based in Nashville, TN and after launching in early 2020 it has opened up offices in Saskatchewan, Canada and Chennai, India.

Abram is committed to empowering individuals and building communities through music, art, culture, and events. His commitment to peace and transformation has resulted in the #OneDayIsToday movement and the One Day global holiday. He has hosted over 50 virtual stages and ha s interviewed more than 100 guests including top authors (Jill Lublin , Elinor Stutz , Patrick Long , Colleen Biggs) , musicians (Paul Lloyd Warner) , Olympic athletes (Sherry Winn) , poets (Stephen Wing) , actors (Kevin E.West, Ronald Fox) , inspirational entrepreneurs (Tom Kearin) , artists, storytellers, and many more.

Abram is a prolific songwriter and has recently written the anthem for One Day due to be released in 2020. Proceeds from his upcoming album will go to supporting and raising awareness for the efforts of the One Day nonprofit.

Abram resides in Nashville, Tennessee where he enjoys creating and pursuing beauty , gardening , serving the will of his three cats, and feeding his recent addiction to swing dancing.

” Today is the day instead of playing it safe , I can choose to enter into that space to be willing to face the chaos in front of my face , God is giving me grace , all the pain and disgrace

goes away and I can”t help but embrace the possibility and fill in that page to create a new reality I never knew could take place.”- August 6th 2019.

“Strategies to Help Transform Business Professionals That are Stuck” -Nadene Joy

Nadene Joy has an inherent interest providing effective long lasting solutions to help others. She witnesses first hand what it looks like from overcoming trauma and destruction through the journey forward of transformation and breaking multigenerational ancestral patterns back to hope, love, peace, and living life each day, in each moment with meaningful purpose and the reward of finally being set free by reaching the light at the end of the tunnel. One step at a time anything is possible if your heart’s desire for real long lasting change takes precedence not only for you but for all the thousands of generations that follow suit after you.

One of the concepts Nadene Joy believes wholeheartedly is that starting now, every time you think about how you wish you could do something “one day”, make a choice and a commitment to take one step that will get you closer to that something TODAY and begin to live your life in each moment with no regrets

“Your life is all about everyone whose life you touch and the way in which you touch it. It’s about extending greater love and kindness for all and serving humanity in the greatest possible way you know how- it all starts with you and something so small and simple as a smile.” -Nadene Joy
