Throughout each industry individual that has graced us with their presence over the last couple of months, it seems as though they have all been brainwashed by the bright lights of London…
‘I walked around Soho and visited every place till I was hired’
‘London is the place to be’
‘Competition is tight in London’ etc. etc.
But not all of us have the ‘luxury’ (?) of being able to afford to live in London or strive for the hustle bustle lifestyle of barging past each other on the underground. So it was refreshing to read this morning that with the take over of the licence fee, Ofcom have also implemented a procedure to fund outside the London bubble!
Not only does this open up more production possibilities across the UK, it gives every small individual more of a chance to get their ideas through the door before heading off to the ‘main’ obvious places that already get so much recognition.
In other news, my winding path of trying to decide where I want to go and what I want to do with life is still persistently changing day by day.
With the opportunity of more band interviews appearing in my life, I feel like this is something I’d like to pursue as music has always been a major part of my life. But there’s always the nagging question of not knowing enough or why would people want to listen to things that I make just because I like it…..just like my Scot Folk Show I produced and presented last week for BIRSt! Including an interview with Ian Smith from Trail West! (Subtle plug!)
Anywho, speaking of whether or not I know enough, I have the opportunity of interviewing Scot Rock band Fatherson on Sunday after their headline set for Mallory Knox. I’m just going as a small interviewer for a chance for some content for BIRSt but they’re an internationally known signed band wh oare used to proper press! :O Slight anxiety there!!!
Aaannddd then in 2 weeks I’m jetsetting all the way back home for more interviews at Mull Music Fest!
Lots of opportunities and meeting people!
