Gloves on!

My guest on Ep 76 is the excellent Imogen Heap.

She's a lady unafraid of asking some big WHYS.

Like for example WHY does the record business have to look the same as It did in the time when physical records and label structures were the norm?

WHY must the artist have to hire teams of people to negotiate complicated wiggly pathways of the old clunky industry that really ought to be simplified for the good of getting the art to the ear?

Imogen has been so open and transparent in her career moves and it’s a lesson in the value of meaningful fan connection. 

She found her own way to share music and was an early Advocate of cultivating a caring and engaged Internet community and it’s paid dividends!

She keeps the doors to her process open and welcomes fans to get involved with the process of her making.

She looks at her real life makes changes to fit shifting priorities at home.

She’s highly adaptable, highly talented and very down to earth.

No wonder she has so many supporters that get behind her wild, pioneering visions.

We get to chatting about a very important and exciting project “the creative passport” thats going to be available to try in Beta this month of nov 2020. 

The future as a simpler place.

 I say bring it on. Check it out! here’s the link (in the Showwwww notesss!)

In The Woods
TN:61 Lianne La Havas, Sam Crowe & Beni Giles
In this biscuit fuelled episode, John is joined by Lianne La Havas along with producers Sam Crowe and Beni Giles to talk about how they wrote, recorded and produced Lianne’s latest album ‘Lianne La Havas’. Delving into Lianne's most personal work yet, the trio takes us through the moments the initial song ideas were formed, through the various stages of their development right to the finished versions. Illustrated with recordings made throughout the album’s journey, we hear stories of capturing the perfect vocal takes, trying piano voicing's on guitar and tales on the phenomenon of song writing. Listen to find out why talkback mics sometimes trump fancy mics, how they ventured to the scariest parts of a flute, and how cabbages made it onto the record.
