The lpproject.co.uk is a site that combines the identification and promotion of the best new musical talent in the country – age is irrelevant. The site was launched in December 2010 and so far has received over 90,000 visits. In addition, bands and other musicians post my reviews on their sites so that the project has a wide ranging global audience. I am also published by the local press, agencies such as Future Sound Share and I am also linked to Chelmsford City Council’s Facebook and Twitter accounts having reviewed ‘The Fling’ four times in the past.My personal ethos is that whatever is linked to my name is quality and I receive a lot of requests to attend gigs or to review online .
If any musicians want some advice on how to progress your career, take a look through some of my previous posts particularly by the advice from F.O.X You can also look at the advice given by Lemoncurd Kids at this year’s Fling festival.
We are settling into Nailsworth where there are burgeoning music venues in the smaller villages as well as here. I will be focussing on both the local and Bristol music scenes but wherever you are, you are welcome to send me requests for reviews online.
I went to see Tom Robinson at The Convent in Woodchester. It is a stunning venue and Robinson was on form.It is apparently the first tour that he has done this century!!
‘Show of Hands’ played at Cheltenham Town Hall last week to a massive audience as you would expect.It was a brilliant evening although the queues meant that it was impossible to get a signed copy of their new album.
The site mysteriously vanished on October 1st so apologies if you weren’t able to access it. Fortunately Ant Donovan managed to retrieve it and I shall be finding a new host site.
I am aware that some illiterate site has hacked into some reviews. Sad.
Thanks to you all for supporting the project and as ever, thanks to all of you who have contacted me and added my work to your sites.It is much appreciated.
