The Artist Index performing artists host, Scott Bishop, talks to Lindsay Compton about her background, passion for dance, school, and lots more. This episode was recorded in Scott’s recording studio in 2023. The Artists Index continues using Zoom and our studio at the Spectrum Marketing Group in Howland Place in New Bedford.

We accommodate our guests’ schedules and record location/resources preference due to Covid’s continuing presence to allow them to remain in the comfort of their homes or because they don’t live in the South Coast of Massachusetts.

The whole concept of The Artists Index and our journey is still in the making and very organic. If you would like to be a guest or, have a suggestion, please let us know!
