Jason Lloyd came by the Hootsuite office to interview me for CiTR’s Tweets and Tunes, his show that examines the relationship between independent musicians and social media.
Being an active participant and enthusiast of music scenes, i had many topics to riff about, including DIY promo work at HootSuite, the Tracks on Tracks project, and the impact social media has 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 social 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.
