Blog will return in June 2018
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.
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).
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.)
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.
