Olivia Street is Communications Coordinator for Alberta Music, and an Alberta musician in her own right, fronting Edmonton band King of Foxes. This episode will teach you about Alberta Music and what they offer local musicians, as well as a bit about collecting your royalties through SOCAN. Turns out you could have some money waiting. We also get into songwriting, and Olivia's daring pressure-cooker plan to write new material.
This episode closes with "You Want More" by King of Foxes. Thanks to Olivia Street for that.

This week the podcast checks in with creator Von Bieker, then takes a turn towards community in two significant ways. First - we move to Anchor - a platform that allows for collaborative audio and 'call-ins' from you! Download Anchor on your App Store of choice and you'll get each episode in segments, with questions you can respond to in app. As of this week, our podcast is interactive. We are also building community on Facebook with our new Facebook group - "We Can Make it Small". I've been crowdsourcing some questions over there and will continue to do so. I'd love to start interacting with your questions and posts related to your "Make It Small" journey, too. Find us at facebook.com/groups/makeitsmall.

I recently sat down with Philip and Mark Elliot Muz in their newly opened Edmonton venue, The Aviary. In the resulting conversation, we talk about what it takes to run a venue, how to land a show at The Aviary and the weirdest thing the brothers Muz have ever hosted in one of their venues. We also laugh a fair amount.
In 2011, Danny Fournier founded the Edmonton Music Awards. In addition to
that scene-boosting enterprise, he owns and operates Oddball Productions, a
music marketing company boosting the careers of individual artists. Danny
used to work for a major label and brings that experience to bear on his
indie artist offerings. As you'll learn in this episode, he also put in
time as a semi-pro wrestler.
In this episode, we talk about the changes Danny has seen over his decades
in the music industry and the ways an artist like me can get his work out
to a broader audience in this internet age. Fire up your pen and paper.
Listen in on this sit-down with one of Edmonton's top concert booking agents, Steve Derpack of JCL Productions. Steve dishes on touring, festivals and how our music listening habits are rapidly changing.
