Manitoba Music; New Day Job

Well the time has come and gone from being a “full time” artist… I think it lasted 2 months before I was scooped back up into the “real job” world.

But! Lucky for me it’s a dream job. In November of 2018 I was hired by Manitoba Music as the interim Program Coordinator for the Indigenous Music Development Program.

I spend my days connecting with stellar Indigenous artists and industry people and working on new programs and projects. In the office I get to work with a kick-ass team who make it hard to wanna leave at the end of the day! So thankful to be working in a place that respects me as an artist, an industry person, and well, just a person! A refreshing environment for sure.
