Vaguely Music

By Double Bar Music

Welcome to Vaguely Music, where co-hosts Ryan Strumpfler and Kelsey Jacobsen go inside the minds and lives of people in the industry. Tired of the same old "I practiced really hard and now I'm famous" story line? We hope to pick apart the stories and see where luck, networking, and sheer bravado make the difference from living room performer to industry contributor. We also discuss the MANY ways to be involved in the music community, from full-time performer to enthusiastic part-time hobbyist; sound engineer to instrument manufacturer; manager to networker; teacher to writer, and more.
