Shannon Curtis grew her community, her email list and her income by rethinking her tour strategy.
This episode features singer songwriter and queen of house concerts Shannon Curtis. It’s another installment of the Unstarving Musician rewind series where I showcase a past interview. And I’ve re-edited and remastered the episode for your listening pleasure. :)
This conversation is so good! We talk about Shannon’s journey into house concert tours, plus:
- How house concerts upped her game in terms of building connections and community
- Her book on house concerts
- Her then latest album Both At The Same Time
- Her release strategy and more
This is one of the conversations I come back to over and over, for reflection and learning. I recommend you take notes, as there is so much you can apply to your music journey. Listening back to this interview brings back fond memories. It was that fun for me. Shannon and her partner Jamie are truly good people.
Please enjoy this very special rewind episode.
