Ben and James - Your Hosts

Why we're doing a podcast and what it's all about. 01/11/17

Based on a shared love of music and now podcasts, we give a brief introduction on why we have started on this journey, and what you can expect from us each week.

Having been in a band what feels like many years ago now, we have missed being creative and speaking with other artists. We also know that there are plenty of things that we would have done differently if we had the luxury of hindsight, so thought what better way to give something back to the music community than to interview those who have been there and have the t-shirt, to pass on their knowledge.

 Here you can see the two of us looking quizzically at...well I've no idea, but here we are doing what we do best - talking to / at one another and gaining a general level of amusment and entertainment from the world around us.

We’ll not just speak to other artists, but people from across the music industry. Talking to those from the radio, publishing companies, record labels, managers, academics, or anyone else who might be able to help artists avoid the countless mistakes we undoubtedly made. The aim is to provide a weekly dose of tips and pointers on anything from writing songs, to releasing music, or playing a show, to building a fan base.

It certainly won’t be a user manual or magic formula to be successful, but we’d love to think that artists may just take a couple of tips each episode to support them on their journey.

Finally, we want to help spread the word about charities and good causes. Those in the music community are generally quite passionate about this, and we believe we can always be doing more when it comes to helping those less fortunate.
