Catching up and passion projects

By | Business | No Comments

Over the past few months, I have been working really hard to do a better job working with and understanding all my clients, needs in my community and really collaborating on some cool projects I’d love to share with all of you. This would not have happened without meeting some incredible people over the past few months and trying to personally grow, which we all know can be hard to do or put a focus on. I started taking a night class at UNBSJ and since then collaborating and sharing ideas has really changed the definition of what that meant for me. Projects and client work I take on now provide more results and better relationships and has made the purpose of these projects so much better.

Strange Grooves has become a really important project for me. It has opened up some phenomenal opportunities and even more amazing conversations. We are on Episode 17 and I am extremely humbled. Check out the latest episode above with Josh Bravner from The Hypochondriacs. We have been working hard, Cherise and I, to book great interviews, plan and create great events, book more slots where we spin our records, spend more time at peoples hours and venues talking about music and it has been so freaking fun!

More on Strange Grooves from Grid City Magazine or from the website.

Area 506 has been something else I have been putting a lot of time and effort into. It is a festival here in my hometown of Saint John and I am thrilled to be on their board of directors as the head of marketing and communications. This festival means a lot to me and so does the success of it. I love music and seeing people enjoy it even more. That being said, There is a wicked show on March 13th that Shivering Songs and Area 506 are putting on. The sheepdogs will be playing the Kent Theatre here in Saint John. Make sure to grab some tickets yo. I would also ask if you know of anyone who may be interested in being a vendor or a sponsor to get in touch on the website.

Check out more on the Area 506 Instagram page here.

These passion projects have really made me do a deep dive into why I do the things I do. That goes for clients, community, myself and many other factors.

The last one I will tell you about for now is The love economy NYC Gathering.

Over the past couple months, I have been working with some phenomenal people to make this event a reality and its happening it’s under 2 weeks. If you know someone who should be at this get them in touch with us via the Facebook page or Instagram.

Hope you are all doing amazing! Give me a shout if you need help with anything marketing related or if you would like to help or contribute to 506 or Strange Grooves.

Cheers 🙂

 

 

 

Strange Grooves Volume 6 with Ray Gracewood

By | Strange Grooves | No Comments

Ray Gracewood joins us for Volume 6.

On this episode, we dive into some of Ray’s favorite records and memories associated with them. We chat recent concert experiences, including his 40th birthday Guns and Roses surprise, Area 506, and much more…

Ray tells us about a very cool Headstones experience from about 15 years ago and a few Matt Mays memories. We chat The Strumbellas, Blue Quarter, Stars, all things Area 506 and the intimate experiences with the bands that go along with running a festival and how listening to them after can feel. We dig into some of our favorite vinyl recordings, and how incredible live music can be for everyone and all ages.

The first record Ray introduced us to is the second album by Canadian band, Ox, released in 2006. They are from Vancouver. Really incredible sound. This is the record you are hearing in the background of this episode.

We also chat about the first record that stands out to us or that we lived through and Ray brought his Loverboy album…If you are not listening yet… press play and turn it up to find out more.
