Crown & Sparrow has always been a project about artists helping artists, telling great stories and making cool stuff happen. In that light, we’re changing up who we are and how we do things, because we’ve been taking on a lot of exciting projects of our own.
Natalie Gallagher has gone and taken over as the music editor at The Pitch, Kansas City’s alt-weekly. She’s doing a phenomenal job covering the local scene and the national acts coming through Missouri, and is, as ever, fabulous.
Colin Wilkinson launched a new record label and distribution hub for new tape gems called Milk Wax. Check them out, and go see Colin deliver the punk you’ve always wanted with his killer outfit Tree Blood.
Carl Atiya Swanson is a dad now, and continues to make theater with Savage Umbrella, as well as working with artists to create a living and a life as the Director of Movement Building at Springboard for the Arts. He just launched a new storytelling and resource-sharing platform, Creative Exchange.
What does this mean for you and your projects? It means that we have a limited capacity to take on new and in-depth work and run projects for you. We’re definitely still interested in you and what you’re doing - if we’re not able to do it for you, we want to help you figure out how you can do it for yourself, or find the right person to help you. Be in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org, and keep on doing what you do.
