The lpproject 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 85,000 visits 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.I am also published by musicians who add my reviews to their site.I am now linked to Chelmsford City Council’s Facebook and Twitter accounts having reviewed ‘The Fling.’
I review for David Houston of ‘Future Sound Share’ as well. He has some exciting gigs coming in November and has a China Drum uk tour culminating in a gig at The Garage on 7th December. The reviews of the support bands, Lost Without Cause and Tyrants are now posted.The China Drum review is on its way.
As far as my site is concerned,the one thing the site has lacked is music that defines the lpproject itself. I’ve spent time building the site up and getting my name out into the public domain but I feel that the addition of a song to the site would enhance it further.So the challenge I’ve set for the project is huge- an original song written by myself. This is one of the most frustrating and difficult things I’ve ever tried! However I’m drawing on some advice given to me by a very wise man-that it’s OK to stop ,it’s not ok to give up!
Any musicians who want some advice on how to progress your career, please take a look at the interview I did with F.O.X.at The Bull in Colchester 10th August. Tomer fromTreetop Flyers has sent me his views on this subject which I have now posted.
I’ve also received another request from Ruby Music and I have now posted the review of Go!Zilla. I have also posted a review of The Vincent(s) for FIFA records in Cork. Elastic Sleep from the same music label are also well worth a look on YouTube for their interpretation of ‘You Only Live Twice.”They will be bringing out a new album “Leave You” in January.
I have just posted a review of Lorretta ,another Essex sensation.
As ever, thanks to all of you who have contacted me and added my work to yours.It is much appreciated.
