This week’s episode features a variety of guests and music.
Georja Skinner is the founder of Creative Labs Hawaii (CLH) and talks about new revenue stream opportunities for Hawaii musicians. The workshop Get Paid for Your Music: Navigating Revenue Streams explores the often-untapped aspects of the music business that can unleash dynamic revenue opportunities for local talent, and provide a deeper understanding of royalties, production libraries, and licensing music for use in film and TV. The free four-part program will be held via Zoom, with webinar dates in December of 2020. Register here.
Charles Michael Brotman is a Grammy and Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award-winner and director of the CLH Music Immersive. He developed the new public program’s modules and talks about the free December workshops available to the public. While participants are invited to attend the full virtual program to maximize their opportunities, registration will also be offered for individual modules. Each one-hour program module is held at 2 p.m. HST. The virtual program is now open to the public for registration.
Courtney Booth is the Artistic Director for the Aloha Theatre. She talks about how the theatre is offering virtual performances like It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. We’ll get to hear some whacky sound effects and how they’re used in this virtual re-creation of the 1940s radio broadcast. The online show is free and runs December 11-13. Donations are accepted.
Nick Wong is a rising star on the Big Island music scene and he discusses his songwriting process. The 17-year-old is still in high school but plays live shows like this Saturday at the View Restaurant Bar & Grill in Kona. Tickets are available here.
Music: “We Are The Party” by the Barrel Thieves (Feat. Chikk), and “Silver Lining Love” by Nick Wong.
