    regardless of the state of the "industry",
    don't worry.
    music will always be.



    It's a holiday Monday and I'm tucked away in a crack atop the mountains, with only a drop of wifi access and only a few hours of sleep... yet I'm still slowly managing to cobble together my daily newsletter and podcast.

    It's a wee later than normal, but alas... here it is.

    I'm still at The PEAK Performance Project Bootcamp in Rock Ridge Canyon in British Columbia. It's the most amazing artist development camp you could ever imagine, put on by the fantastic folks at The Peak FM (a Vancouver radio station) and MusicBC.

    Here's a fantastic video summary of our day up here on Saturday, the day that I delivered the keynote address first thing in the morning, followed by three hours of breakout sessions with the artists.

    It's a hilarious little video, watch it here:
