My conversation about house concerts with singer Shannon Curtis has been one of the most popular episodes of the Jazz Spotlight Podcast. Now, she’s back on the show!
If you listened to the interview with Shannon, this new one is a perfect follow-up as we touch on a different aspect of house concerts: community-building.
In case you aren’t familiar with house concerts nor Shannon, you’re going to learn how she made $25K on a 2-month house concert tour and how to build community through house concerts.
Shannon discusses her latest summer house concert tour and how you can build toward your own, how to build relationships with new fans and she mentions the equipment she uses and that easily fits into a backpack.
If you’re an independent musician who would like to follow Shannon’s footsteps and start doing house concerts, all while building a community of raving fans, this episode is for YOU!
Shannon Curtis is a dream pop singer-songwriter and keyboardist, known for being one of the very first independent artists to have organized a series of successful house concerts.
She’s also an author and shares her story, and everything she has learned along the way, in her book No Booker, No Bouncer, No Bartender: How I Made $25K On A 2-Month House Concert Tour (And How You Can Too).
Shannon has just wrapped up a new house concerts tour, which brought tunes from her new album Connections in several cities on the West Coast.
