I recorded myself singing a new song called "Tin God" and uploaded it to Youtube. Yes I am a little bit insane. One of my new years resolutions was to share more of my music. Here is the first song of 2017! Be sure to leave a like and a comment if you enjoyed it!Read More
With my youth mentorship in it's third month, ACI included Roland and me in their most recent newsletter. It was exciting to be interviewed about the progress we've made as a team. It's a snapshot into the beginning of what we've started and our plans. I've included the link below so you can read the whole thing. Also, I've included some of the video logs (or vlogs) that Roland and I have used as a tool to document our progress every time we get together. You can see were a just a pair of goofballs having a good time.Read More
I'm so excited, I get to spend this holiday with my boyfriend and his lovely family in Hawaii! We are all super excited and the days are slowly counting down. I'm trying to finish all my homework and meet all my deadlines before then but we are leaving this Friday morning and I'm starting to really feel the panic. My boyfriend has already packed his suitcase. I've written my packing list and thrown a few things into my suitcase. It's hard for me to actually imagine we're leaving and dedicate time to pack things. I'm going to try to finish up tonight though, I don't want to leave this to the last minute.Read More
Some super exciting news happened this week. I decided to put my music on spotify. I know it sounds lame to be super excited about putting your music on a music streaming website but I'll have you know that it's also on itunes!Read More
I hosted the first ever-LIVE Winnipeg Music Project episode this past Tuesday. The high from the adrenaline was fantastic. Its very similar to the high I get from performing my own music. It’s terrifying but more or less addicting. I know there had been episodes on the show which had been live in the past when I was interviewed by Jared talking about the Winnipeg music project, but this was the first time I was interviewing someone else. Live. On the radio. All by myself.Read More
On November 11th, I celebrated my 23 birthday. It was a weird experience because it didn’t really feel like my birthday. There is usually much more excitement the week beforehand. I usually count down the days and make sure everyone I know and their mother know it’s my birthday. I wonder if it’s a sign of maturity? More likely dread.Read More
I feel super lame re-sharing this interview on this page after posting it on the Winnipeg Music Project page, and especially since I just posted an interview of myself as my last blog post, but this is my blog so I can do whatever I want. A few weeks back I was interviewed on my own show, the Winnipeg Music Project, to talk about the show and the recent BreakOut West internship I had done. It was special because it was a LIVE interview and Jared McKetiak, the station manager, asked me funs of exciting questions about myself and music.
I really appreciated having him there with me in the studio because I was incredibly nervous. When I usually pre-record my interviews, I would be able to edit and fix mistakes that might happen during the interview. When you're live you don't really have that opportunity. This is was good and healthy experience for me.
Back In September I was interviewed by my friend Kelly Hughes on his show called The Ivory Tower on CKUW 95.9 FM. We premiered my single "Paralyzed for Life" when it first was re-released in September and promoted the Winnipeg Music Project. It was a really weird experience talking about myself. Something I had done previously on the WitchPolice Radio show (which is how my friendship with their host Sam first came to be).Read More
I've had the really amazing opportunity to join the BreakOut West 2016 Staff in Regina as an intern to learn the behind the scenes of the music industry and meet industry professionals! This is all thanks to ACI Youth Mentorship program I'm currently enrolled in with Roland Deschambault as my mentor. If you follow my on any of my social media you would already know that. (So follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat @ashleybieniarz to know these things.)Read More
Crazy things have been happening this year. I entered and PERFORMED in the Uniter Fiver and now I'm in the Manitoban talking about the Winnipeg Music Project. Olivia Michalczuk did such a fantastic job of making my own words make sense when I talked to her about the show.
I don't want to talk to much so you can click on the actual link and read the interview. I just want to say how thankful I am for everyone's support, this is just such a fantastic thing I'm apart of and I can't wait to see where everything goes!
Also, you can pick up copies of the Manitoban today on the University of Manitoba campus and read the interview there!
This is actually crazy, I can't even believe this. I might actually be losing my mind. Yesterday, I was sitting on my couch when I received a notification on my phone that I had an email. An email from the Uniter. An email from the Uniter saying I WAS IN THE TOP FIVE FOR THE UNITER FIVER AND WOULD BE PERFORMING THE IN THE 2016 SHOWCASE.Read More
I did a thing. I entered a song into the 2016 Uniter Fiver contest for a chance to the win the title of "One of the Five local talents to watch in 2016" and a performance opportunity at The GoodWill in January and I need your help by voting!
From Today (December 7th, 2015 to December 21, 2015 until noon) you can vote once. It's a really great opportunity for all of those involved.
Thank you so much for all your support!
I'm am so freaking excited to share this information with everyone!
The Winnipeg Music Project is switching from text interviews to podcasts. Stay tuned (literally!!) for awesome upcoming events and listen to the DEBUT show on NOVEMBER 4th, 2015 at 11:30am on 101.5FM!Read More
I'm sad to say for the past couple of months my blog has been severely neglected. As my second school term became more mentally and emotionally demanding, I decided to put all other things on a back burner to focus on my education. Although I'm still not quite finished with my final exams, I feel like I have more time right now that I can be flexible with. I want to use this opportunity to dive into a new project I have been planning for quite some time.
A Winnipeg Music Blog.Read More
