LATEST EPISODES OF THE KEEPIN' IT LOCAL PODCAST
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 interviews Alicia to get a progress report on their business. They discuss the original vision for the company, what some of the biggest disappointments and accomplishments have been, and what she has in mind for the future.
Alicia and Dennis talk to Jon about playing for weddings and other events, how he got into the music-booking business, and what he thinks about the Fort Wayne music scene.
Alicia and Dennis talk to Neso (aka Colin Mick) about his first album, which he's releasing while still a high school sophomore. Colin was once a student of Alicia's, and you'll hear right away what sets him apart from other aspiring musicians his age.

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.
