“I’ll have a new article every Tuesday”, I said!
“IT’LL BE EASY”, I SAID!!!
So only one week after promising weekly Tuesday and Friday articles I’m writing Tuesday’s article late on Wednesday night! Rough start guys, rough start. Don’t bust my chops too hard here, lol. At very least I promise it hasn’t been because of laziness. I’ve been so busy learning and working on new projects that have entered my life thanks to music. It’s not a good excuse because this is a top priority of mine, but I thought I’d chat quick about this week’s article and featured artist.
Tomorrow’s release will introduce Eventspot to you. Eventspot.ca is a new marketplace where people can hire event services (like musicians, chefs, decoration artists, and a crap load of other really cool services).
Why I love Eventspot it because it is a local startup company based right here in Toronto. I also love that this platform gives musicians a chance to be seen and hired to perform at events (that’s kinda what I’m doing here to begin with). This is an actual revenue stream that musicians (in Toronto for now, more cities later) will be able to benefit from. On top of this, I’ve spoken with the team and they are working so hard to make sure that your profile will be seen on this quick-growing service. That’s all I wanna say about that for now until I dive in a little deeper tomorrow. But it’s exciting, I promise (not like the whole “every Tuesday articles promise” thing…ok last time I bring it up!).
On Friday I will be featuring a talented young woman from Toronto. This week is all about repping the 6 I guess, nothing wrong with that! =)
I’ll be featuring her story as well as her first Album, which was a project 3 years in the making. There were ups and downs in creating this album, however Ink Sticks & Stones stuck through it and learned the lessons that life had to offer along the way. Being a musician isn’t always an easy path. It’s often tough and you don’t know what will happen along the way, good or bad. Keep at it though and you’ll get there. Check in Friday for more inspiration from this week’s great Featured Artist.
Congrats on the album Ai Rei! Please enjoy this teaser of “Full Blue Moon” everyone!
As always, thanks for reading!
