ASCAP 2015 - Squarespace Studio

ASCAP 2015 - Squarespace Studio

This past week, I traveled to Hollywood with a PDX coworker to work the Squarespace Studio at the 2015 ASCAP convention. The convention has been going on for years now, but this was the first year that Squarespace sponsored it. To give back to our creative customers, we teamed up with Wes Wolfe and set up a sound-proof studio in the lounge area. Our participants had roughly 20 minutes to go in to the studio and record one track. Wes then put this track on a vinyl, and the participants were able to take the vinyl home at the end of the day!

To say the least, I'm so thankful for this experience! I met a handful of talented, rising musicians (and walked away with their EPs), spoke to potential customers about utilizing our awesome platform, spent 3 days in Hollywood, and oh, uh, RODE THE ELEVATOR WITH ISAAC HANSON.  ❤︎
