I had a great time interviewing people in Chicago and one of the most outstanding interviews was with singer/song writer Christine Kane.
This interview was really special for me because while Christine is first and foremost an artist, the conversation here is a unique take on a marketing and blogging.
Dawud Miracle had this to say about the interview when he posted the raw version of the interview on his blog:
From the interview (below): “…blogging for me has enabled my creativity to reach people who wouldn’t in a hundred years go out to a club.”
I’ve posted the interview (less than 15 minutes) below so business owners – musicians and otherwise – can see a successful niche blogger share what she’s learned about social media that’s made her successful.
Christine has also posted the raw version of this interview and has expanded upon a brilliant little question that was raised in the middle of this interview on her blog.
If you were a real artist, you wouldn’t need a blog
…all you would have to do is paint in your studio, or hang out with your instrument, creating and creating, while the masses of adorers who are feverishly running around looking for someone to adore just continue to find you even though you spend all your time making your art. If you build it, they will come, right? If you were a real artist, they would come and they would discover you. Wouldn’t they?
Christines latest album "A Friday Night in One lifetime" is available from Christines site and is well worth checking out, I was lucky enough to get a free copy of it at SOBCon and you can check out a free sample track here.
