Interview on Tweets and Tunes
Recently Jason Lloyd came by the HootSuite office to interview me for CiTR’s Tweets and Tunes, a show that examines the relationship between independent musicians and social media. Being an avid observer of the music scene, we had lots of topics to mull over including my time at HootSuite, the Tracks on Tracks project, and the impact that social media is having on independent music.
Social media is creating an opportunity for musicians to connect with their audience like never before, allowing everyone to be part of a conversation. The changing dynamics between artist and fan are explored, along with lots of advice and tips for musicians and their socia media endeavours.
The show ends with a discussion of the Vancouver music scene, including, bands, venues, and how things have changed and evolved over the years here.
