Yesterday I was eating fabulous Indian Food, at Shanti’s Curries, on Main St in East Van. I noted that the music was just the right vibe for the space. I struck up a conversation with the owner, asked if she was using Spotify which she was, then told her I was a local musician and my blue dirt girl music was on up Spotify. Boom she started playing my music and added Crazy Beautiful to her cafe playlist. I posted the experience on social media, lighting up Shanti’s Curries and blue dirt girl, and a new place for my music to be discovered was born.
Bolstered from that experience I noted Jay Semko, musician in the fabulous Saskatchewan band, Northern Pikes, posting he had a new radio show on Saskatoon’s community radio station CFCR 90.5 FM, “The Songwriters”, from 1-2 pm. I had reached out and chatted with Jay in the past around show spots in Saskatoon. I asked if he would consider playing some blue dirt girl songs and he agreed. So Crazy Beautiful is off to Saskatoon to be played on Jay’s “The Songwriters” radio show.
Start a conversation. It can change your day.
