The Local Glow is an independent podcast production based out of Chicago, Illinois, created by Tariq Shihadah. Through our featured interviews, live performances, and story-telling, we dig into the heart of local music and arts throughout the Midwest and beyond, uncovering what makes your art and music communities come to life. This podcast is a celebration of art and the unique relationships that it fosters as it draws individuals from different worlds into a space where we all feel a little more alive. This production is also here as a resource to connect you to your local music community and to connect your local community to its rich and ever-changing neighbors around the Midwest and beyond.

After a successful and exciting 7-episode first season, the podcast took a break for a while to re-structure, re-focus, and expand the team. With the vision cast, the stories brimming, and the team grown from one to four, The Local Glow is weeks away from launching Season 2. This season will feature an exceptional line-up of narrative explorations of community experiences, passionate showcase performances by musicians and poets from around the country, and in-depth looks at the creative world around us.

First Gig Rock Camp is a summertime gem found in a few cities around Central Illinois. The week long day camp brings in young kids from around the region to get together, and try on the rock star life for a few days. From learning songs, to photo shoots, to radio interviews, to Skype sessions where national musicians share stories of life on the road and how to find success in music, First Gig brings the stage to the next generation of hometown heroes.
