LATEST EPISODES OF THE KEEPIN' IT LOCAL PODCAST
Dennis and Alicia interview Grim Reaper Guitarist and Content Writer Nick Bowcott about how the music industry has changed over his career, the upsides and downsides of social media, and what true success looks like.
Dennis reads his latest article about how Trump succeeds on social media, not because his tweets are so high-tech or clever, but rather because he does things off social media that make his posts arresting.
Dennis and Alicia talk to vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Damon Mitchell about his new album, his upbringing with music, and his thoughts on the Fort Wayne music scene.
Many artists of all stripes are reluctant to promote themselves because they hate the very idea of marketing. But maybe that's because they have the wrong idea about what good marketing entails.

Dennis writes about how Trump succeeds on social media, not because his tweets are so high-tech or clever, but rather because he does things off social media that make his posts arresting.
Artists of all stripes tend to view marketing and self-promotion as a violation of the genuineness that makes their work at all worthwhile. But without a following, they simply can’t sustain their careers. So how can you get bigger audiences without selling your soul?
Paul sits down with Jonah Crismore, the Chief Programming Officer for the Embassy Theatre, to discuss his role, what goes into planning the venue’s events, and what the historic theater means to our city.
“I could move back to Nashville and [struggle] working some dead-end job, or I could move to Fort Wayne where I could live more affordable. And I was young here, so it’s the city I feel the most connected to,” says The Ruin Bar’s Cassie Ledbetter… You might recognize the location as the former Skeletunes Lounge. But step inside and you’ll experience something brand new and unique to our area.
Kea, the PyleStyle mascot, is full of mischief. She's created a bit of tension in the Junk-Pyle household. But she's also teaching us some valuable lessons.
Our first episode of the Keepin' It Local Podcast. We talked with Tim Hall, Carrie Riepenhoff & Mike Conley about Hall's upcoming Supper Club Series event, "Revisit 1977," featuring Sunny Taylor, Alicia Pyle, and Mike Conley. It will be held at the Philmore on Broadway on March 23.
Alicia never thought she wanted to be a music teacher, but later found out teaching is an integral part of any music career. It turns out that's a good thing, both for the Fort Wayne music scene and for individual musicians.
I learn a lot about what it takes to make a living in the arts from seeing how Alicia balances her work for paying gigs with what she does for fundraisers and other non-paying events.
