WHO I AM

Bonjour! I’m Dana Whittle, a musician-writer-designer-producer. As a musician, I perform traditional Québécois music with fiddler Claude Méthé. We tour regularly and have recorded numerous albums. I also write and perform original songs in French and English – some have been recorded by other artists. As a designer, I have created album covers, promo material and about a kazillion websites. Along the way, I’ve learned to be a sound engineer and producer and last year recorded and produced our latest album in my studio. My love for music production and podcasts finally got the better of me and led to creating my own productions.

WHAT I'M MAKING

My company, Vizou Média, is currently home to several audio podcasts, some still in development, with an accent on culture, music, technology and life in Québec, in both English and in French.

My first production is audio podcast Pas d’accent, featuring narrative, true stories from my perspective as a dual citizen (US/Canada) – a creative and curious bilingual parent, musician, designer, writer and female identifying feminist in rural Québec, with a special focus on the fascinating cultures of language, music and technology. Living outside the place I grew up allows me to observe it at arms' length, shedding new light on what I once took for granted, while being a newcomer (even after two decades) here gives me an uncommon vantage point on the world around me.

A second series in French, will premier in early 2019. The theme is traditional Québécois music and features interviews, recordings and exchanges with artists, their families, promoters and venues. It will be an ongoing documentary of the musical world I make my home in, as well as speaking on behalf of the importance of traditions of all kinds.

WHY I NEED YOUR SUPPORT

Your interest, financial support and feedback are precious –  any contribution helps me to keep on documenting and sharing the culture I have access to. I am hoping to grow Vizou Média to include other creators and eventually to build a small team to free me up to spend 100% of my time being creative (okay, even 80% would be amazing!).

Goals
$9 of $500 per month
When I reach $500 per month, I will believe that what I am creating and all the energy I am putting into making these podcasts is worth it – not only to me but to my listeners! – and I will probably sleep a little better, knowing that I should keep going.
