Happy One Year Release Anniversary of T-Swift’s album 1989! The internet told me so. It’s a long and winding road to get to where I am today, an unabashedly fervent fan of Taylor Swift. I had the thought for this post after a mildly hectic morning braving the elements of nature here in Texas – […]

Lessons From A T-shirt

21, Jul 2015

Something weird happened, guys. If you’re reading this, you may be a proud owner of a JPO 2016 campaign t-shirt, pictured here. It all started with a flippant Facebook post to promote a real gig: Followed by like…a lot of people saying, “YEAH!” and “We want the t-shirt!” Which led to me looking for a […]

I am pleased to announce that my eBook “Money & Heart” is available exclusively on Kindle for a limited time promotion…and it’s heavily discounted! That’s how you roll on Amazon and I’m just happy to be in the massive behemoth of a store and available on your iPad or Fire or Galaxy or giant face […]

Los Angeles Recap

3, May 2015

I had a really great time in Los Angeles…learned a lot about the city, played some music, heard lots more music, and met some really awesome folks! Grandmaster tour leader and connector of all things LA, Toni Koch from The Talent Tree Presents, was my hostess and chauffeur. I played an open mic at Kulak’s […]

The eBook Has Landed

4, Apr 2015

Hey folks! I have been working on this project for…um…a while. It’s hard to press “launch” on a thing sometimes. I wrote this book because oftentimes on the road people will ask, “I like what you do for Susan Gibson…how do you do it?” It would take a LOT of explaining, like a whole lot. […]

SXSW 2015 Day 1

14, Mar 2015

It was a good, chill day. There are a LOT of people here. They have started marking certain panels as “popular” so you at least know you have to get somewhere really early to get a seat. I started off with “Simple Ways to Massively Increase Your Content” with a social media manager for Oracle […]

Good Things Afoot

11, Mar 2015

Wheeeeeeeeeeew! Long time no see, beloved blog. It’s almost time for SXSW so the blogging is about to get real. Some of my favorite posts are the recaps of all the random stuff I get to see and do at this giant conference. So glad to be here for these events…it’s a unique opportunity when […]

A couple of weekends ago I got to immerse in a gathering put on by the lovely folks at the Austin Songwriters Group. These folks have been bringing the industry side to Austin for a long time and it is much needed. We have a lot of live music but no publishers, song pluggers, or […]

Pomplamoose on tour. Taylor Swift and Spotify. Grammy nominations. If you’re a music industry news junkie, you’ve read about all of this in the past couple of weeks. If you’re not, just know that a lot of people have spent a lot of internet time debating music and money and art and commerce…like always. I […]

You will not be surprised to know that 1989, Taylor Swift‘s new album, is my jam this month. I am a little surprised at how invested I am in her career lately, though. Her music has definitely grown on me over the years and I got really interested when she announced a full on split […]
