A Customer’s Story: 22nd April 2021

Thursday, April 22nd, 2021

At the start of the first lockdown, I was furloughed and wanted to try do a project I had been wanting to do for years but never had the time for. Making a song a day for a whole month. So, I decided to make a song a day for thirty days. I was doing a masters in music innovation at Waterbear in Brighton at the time and thought it would also be interesting to write about for an upcoming essay.

The songs were uploaded daily to my bandcamp and I would post about them every day on social media and it was really lovely having a very small group of people keeping up with the project daily and getting feedback constantly and feeling like I was creating something original.

Anyway, people were asking if I would make a CD, and I wanted to see if I could keep the CD’s in ethos with the project. I had gotten really into the number thirty and I liked the symbolism of having thirty cds for thirty songs. I also loved how each day in the project I had to try create something new and so I wanted each CD to be new and differentand so I liked the idea of painting each one.

In the end it was difficult and challenging but really exciting seeing everyone getting unique CD’s! I also painted a lyric poster for every song so you would get a numbered print and cd. I sold them through Resident Music in brighton and sold out like 6 hours after putting it up for preorder! It was really rewarding.

I then made thirty days 2 and 3 and for the second decided to have the cd’s more conventionally made through your site but had custom badges and for the third I am going to put an order through soon for conventional CD’s again but will be making thirty unique hand made tiny zines with lyrics and drawings in them.

Music Stars Raise Pressure over EU tours: 25th February 2021

Thursday, February 25th, 2021

As if Covid wasnt enough of a blow to our live music scene it seems that UK artists will be faced with red tape and fees for visa’s in order to tour and play in some EU countries.

Many musicians feel that the government have failed them and despite a very straightforward plan being put forward during negotiation stages, which would have allowed musiocians to travel without work permits,the EU rejected the proposal.
