I was so equally excited and nervous for SXSW this year. I think it is hands-down the most important music event of the year. The bands that are performing aren’t your usual festival round-makers, they’re up-and-comers, and there’s just endless possibilities to meet new people in the industry. All opportunities await!
I remember watching each episode of Good Luck Charlie and freaking out when the star, Bridgit Mendler, came out with her first single, “Ready or Not.” This was a bop from the start and if you’re also a 20-something who grew up watching Disney Channel, chances are you’ve seen and heard Mendler’s talent firsthand. However, the indie pop singer has made quite a departure from her Disney days. Recently, I got to catch up with her and discuss the new sound and upcoming tour.
