Made for Music: The podcast set to explore the Northwest Music Scene

It’s been a long time coming, but I am thrilled to announce the launch of Made for Music.

I grew up in the Greater Seattle area and have lived in the Pacific Northwest my whole life. There’s a wonderful, vibrant music scene up here, with an incredibly welcoming community. Growing up, music was my ultimate passion, but I didn’t know how to get started.

So, this podcast will explore the Northwest music scene, how to navigate it, the resources available to you, and most importantly, the stories behind the people making things happen.

Episodes will be released every two weeks, highlighting different artists, producers, and business people who have established (or are establishing) themselves in the music scene.

The first episode is set for release Tuesday, January 9, 2018  (TODAY) featuring Sarah St. Albin. Check out our Spotify playlist to listen to the different artists we chat about, including Tobias the Owl, J GRGRY, and Sarah McLauchlan.

Be sure to check out our website and follow us on our socials to experience this journey every step of the way!
