Music is a competitive industry to get started in, especially in the new age of digital media and short form content. Successful Bellingham musicians and employees gave their insight into what sets the failing artists apart from the winners, and what it takes to make a sustainable living.
With Bellingham's beloved music scene back in full swing, musicians and fans are looking for more ways to get involved. “I think it's more vibrant than ever,” said Patrick Roulete, department chair of the Western Washington University music department.
The Campus Christian Fellowship at Western Washington University formed Café con Leche, a weekly meeting every Tuesday in the Viking Union. The meeting serves as a safe space for people with Hispanic and Latinx heritage to share their unique experiences growing up.
