Universal Language Launches Friday, April 30thApril 27, 2010
WJB Volunteer Ashley Collins is celebrating the launch of her social media marketing business this Friday, April 30th with a songwriters’ circle and live show at the Fat Cat Blues Bar. The business, dubbed Universal Language, coordinates online promotions for such local artists as Chris Kirby, Shawn Beresford and Jerry Stamp. Universal Language will manage internet resources such as facebook, myspace and twitter accounts, demonstrating the power of these new mediums in the world of Jazz & Blues today.
After 1½ years of coordinating social media on a volunteer basis for Kirby, Ashley was convinced to take on the responsibilities full-time and branch out to other musicians and performers. The potential for growth is also great, as artists rely more and more on social networking media to promote their performances and recordings. Wreckhouse Jazz & Blues is proud to support Ashley in her endeavors as we work together to sustain the jazz & blues community in St. John’s.
The Universal Language launch this Friday will feature a songwriters’ circle at 9:30 with Chris Kirby, Jerry Stamp, Shawn Beresford, Cody Westman, John Cossar and Bryan Oram. Later that night you can catch a showcase featuring Harvey Klok & the Second Hand Band followed by a full set by Chris Kirby & the Marquee + guests.
