As some of you may know I have been working hard to finish my Masters thesis in journalism this past year. Thankfully, as I move into the editing phase of the thesis writing process my time restraints are easing up.
Unfortunately, this past year I have not had much time to dedicate to The Littlest Voice. I am really grateful that such a great community has developed around the blog and it has been all of you that has kept it alive.
You may have noticed that during this time I have been experimenting a bit. I’ve been trying to find the best ways to tell all of the great stories I’ve heard and share the fabulous music that I’ve been coming across. I am happy to say that I now have a solid game plan.
We now have a physical address where musicians can mail in albums or physical press kits. The address is:
The Littlest Voice
PO Box 681 Montreal Succursale B
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Please note also that I have been approached about receiving physical monetary donations to the blog. If you wish to send in a donation to our address, please make sure that you use a cheque as they tend to be more secure than cash. If you do want to send cash, that’s fine, just make sure the envelope is not see through. Think birthday card from Grandma level of security!
Anyways, starting tomorrow, any music videos that we receive will be shared on our Youtube channel. We will still continue to highlight some videos on the blog, but this way we can now share more great videos with you.
Starting September 1st, we will return to having a monthly Spotify playlist. Be sure to follow to our channel to see the monthly lists as they appear. The announcements will be shared on our social media every time a new playlist is created. So if you haven’t already, follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Finally, we will be returning to publishing podcasts!! I initially had to stop doing them because my old computer couldn’t handle the program that I needed to create them. However, until I can upgrade my computer, I have found a viable workaround. The first episode will be published this week, with another one scheduled for next week. Please note that publication will be sporadic until later in the fall, but this is a start.
So that’s it for now. Keep checking back over the next couple of weeks. There will be lots of great articles coming your way as I work through our to-do list. In the meantime, feel free to drop us a line about anything. See a great street musician? We want to hear about it! Come across a great indie band? Tell us about them! Remember to use the hashtag #thelittlestvoice.
