Kathleen (Maisonneuve Music) and Michael (moon:and:6) have both been in the music business for a long time, and have been a part of the growing Hamilton music scene for the last 8 years.  We talk about everything music related – from the parallels of the non-profit sector to the music industry, some of the challenges of launching and running a label, the creative ways to make a living doing what you’re passionate about and where the revenue comes from, along with what brought them into Hamilton from Toronto.

If you have any part of the music industry whether in Hamilton or elsewhere, or you’re interested in what it’s like to be a part of it, you need to listen to this chat!
