    30. Social Media + Digital Marketing Roundup with Danielle McNeill + Phoenix Bain

    The topic of this week’s show is a roundup of social media + digital marketing tips and trends for musicians. And joining me on the show are 2 ladies who’ve been on the show before - Danielle McNeill + Phoenix Bain from The Social Circle.  

    Danielle, Phoenix and I have worked together on many social media + digital marketing projects here at Fritz Media and we’ve definitely learned a lot over the last couple of years, and we thought it would be great to share some of that wisdom with you. 
    Oh and just a quick note that this episode is the final episode for Season 2! We'll be taking a short break but will be back in March with more music industry wisdom for you!

    29. Globalization + Collaboration with Teon Gibbs

    29. Globalization + Collaboration with Teon Gibbs

    The topic of this week’s show is globalization and collaboration in the music industry and joining me on the show is Teon Gibbs. 
    Teon is a rapper and producer based in Vancouver, who is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable and influential voices in Western Canada. Born in Botswana, Teon lived all over the globe before settling in Vancouver and he’s been involved in production, sessional musician work, songwriting and engineering for almost 10 years. Teon recently released a collab EP with IAMTHELIVING who is a musician from South London who now also lives in Vancouver, so I thought he would be a great person to talk to about globalization and collaboration. 
    We had a great chat and I hope you enjoy it!

    26. LGBTQ Representation In The Music Industry with Sad China (aka Sunny Chen)

    Hello! The topic of this week's show is LGBTQ representation in the music industry and joining me on the show this week is actor, musician and filmmaker Sunny Chen who is also known as Sad China for their music projects. 
    Sunny and I had a great chat where we talked about more than just LGBTQ representation. Because they are a non-binary Asian Canadian, their experiences in the music industry involve more than just their gender identity - so we covered a lot!
    We had a really great chat and I hope you enjoy it.
