Find Ghostly Beard on the Interweb
On this episode of the podcast, we have a conversation with the elusive, enigmatic artist known as Ghostly Beard. Ghostly Beard is actually the artistic moniker of singer songwriter and virtuoso musician Patrick Talbot from Montreal Canada. We set the stage with his personal story and then talk about his music, social media strategies and some things younger artists need to be aware of in the evolving music industry. After the interview, Patrick contacted me and told us about a project he is working on which is an indie music "collective" if you will, or a platform for indie artists to communicate with each other, promote each other and generally help each other on their journey through the music business.
Patrick also mentioned that all proceeds from the sale of 'Inward' would go to benefit the MusiCounts Charitable organization. You can find out more about MusiCounts at their website www.musicounts.ca
