You may have noticed that Yow Yow! has been heavy on music content lately. It’s not by coincidence! Despite not taking the music career route in my own life, it is still very much something that I think about every day. When I’m not on the phone or in meetings, my headphones are always over my ears. At night, we come home and watch more YouTube music documentaries. I’ve recently become partial to YouTube’s Artist Spotlight Series and crave more, but they aren’t coming out fast enough! I’ve even been reaching out to friends of mine in the industry still to see how I can become more involved in my free time. Where we will find the time is beyond me, but I’m hoping we can make something work.
I recently stumbled across [Iris Zhang] while watching another YouTube video in which Shawn is watching one of her covers! And I quickly gravitated towards her channel. In early Yow Yow! days we were sharing covers all the time and I’ve really missed that and discovering new artists. Shawn Mendes, himself, also started out doing covers so this feels serendipitous.
